    mechanized company question

    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

    Forger has a point here...

    look at the beginning of the Doctrines section for the definitions.

    yup all your answers should be there, but for clarification... conscripts do not count as guard infantry but all command squads do...

    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
