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.)
The purpose of 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 is ultimately feeding the squads and their weapons.
