Tactical use of troops on AS-42 organization

Post by Eugen Pinak » 28 Oct 2022 13:11

Italian infantry in North Africa had peculiar AS-42 modular organization with each infantry company having only one rifle platoon, the rest of the platoons being HMG, Anti-tank rifles, Anti-tank guns. Compare it with previous Italian (and not only) infantry company having three rifle platoons.

Does anybody seen the official details on tactical use of troops on AS-42 organization?
