Did you see the part about my being a product of a military education system? :) I'm not talking about feeding your squad and their weapons. I'm talking about worrying about adequate sealift and railheads and contractors for the chow hall and whether or not the runway is long enough for a C-5 and how much tonnage the airhead can handle, etc. That starts at maybe battalion level?

5 elements sounds like a platoon. 5 squads, right? I'd argue it should be Tactics up to company level in modern warfare. Say, 16 elements. (I'm just sort of bloviating, here, though.)
