In a mechanized army, does the command squad of the infantry platoon have to be in a chimera?
Also, do conscripts have to be mounted or is it just regular infantry?
Look up the defintion of Guard Infantry. Every one that fits that profile has to have chimera.
Three Companies of the 26th Vinancium
143rd Airborne Badgers (99.9% done)
159th Corsair Rifles (35% done))
69th Armored Wall Busters (95% done)
Total 197 men, 12 tanks, 4 Heavy Artillery Pieces

yup all your answers should be there, but for clarification... conscripts do not count as guard infantry but all command squads do...
wait, according to that storm troopers don't count as infantry. that can't be right, can it?
no they do not count as guard infantry, thus they cannot benefit from any doctrine benefitting guard infantry. although they already have the chimera option themselves.
hmmm. carefull. ther ARE times that storm troopers count as infantry. wether they benefit form certain doctrines is another story.
infantry is almost always defined in 40k as model walking on two legs that is not monstorus creature or a vehicle
never mind i found the info from games workshop where it sez they don't count as infantry
notice the key words I used was "Guard Infantry", the actual term that is used in the codex... next time read my post a little better before you critique my post....
