How many soldiers are in a troop? (

Troop usually refers to Cavalry (Main Battle Tank) a troop will generally consist of 4 tanks each with a crew of 4 so 16 men to a Troop consisting of Troopers, NCO’s and 1 officer or Senior NCO as troop leader in a Squadron there are 4 sabre troops and Squadron Headquarters consisting of 2 Tanks for OC Squadron leader & 2nd in Command, so overall generally there will be 3 or 4 Sabre troops and SHQ so 14 to 18 MBT’s per Squadron this is from my own experience as a Tankie from 1976 to 85 things have changed since then I’m sure at that time there were 4 Sabre Squadrons and HQ Squadron which would have 2 MBT’s for the CO of the Regiment and 2nd in command and a lot of logistical staff, is that enough? Reconnaissance Regiments would be structured differently I suspect.¬† (


I am Volker Schunck and live in Dresden, Germany. First I was an industrial clerk, then I studied theology. Through my engagement with Zen, I became aware of the Christian mysticism. Meanwhile, I go my own way. For me, faith is not a world-view but a being. It is important to me, not to live lost in thought but aware and intensely. For me, this also includes careful handling of other people. The NVC (Nonviolent Communication), which I learned during my training as a mediator, helps me with this.
