Leadership of Platoon

Unit sizes including STARLight(4), STAROfDavid(6) and DoubleSTAR(12) Platoons, have a leadership unit. For STARLight Platoons (4 Squads), it is a Leader Squad, hosting the executive command 1) Board. As a STARLight elects a 2) Council, a fifth Squad is added. Finally, as a 3) Court is defined, the Platoon gains a sixth Squad, now constituted by 2 Trinities of Squads for 6 Squads. This creates an independent operable unit, with all three powers of governance present.

So we went from 3 Militia/FireTeam and 3 FireTeams/Squad, for the TinityOfTrinities Squad: 9 Militia/Squad. This is the 1st level with which 9 Militia are present to fully form a Board and thus is the first unit to determine actions. In order to establish separation of powers, the STAROfDavid Platoon is the 1st level in which the 3 Leadership Powers are present, across a 1) Board, 2) Council & 3) Court. As well the STAROfDavid Platoon has 3 Operational Squads, in addition.

The Leadership in a STAROfDavid Platoon is 3 leader Squads, 1 per power. So we went from 3 Militia, to 3 FireTeams (TrinityOfTrinities), to 6 Squad subunits.


Leadership of Company

At this point we have the ability to enact the Tetrahedron organization Principle. However, the apex node, the leader node, may have a unit size smaller than the operational units. Still, the organization is 3 operational subunit and 1 leader unit.

Companies are made of Platoons. As a STAROfDavid Platoon is the 1st unit with all three powers separated, a STAROfDavid Platoon is the Leader Platoon of a Company. The 3 Operational units may be STARLights or STAROfDavid, or even a DoubleSTAR.

Andso, Companies are formed in Tetrahedron fashion, with a Leader Platoon and 3 Operational Platoons. So we went from 3 Militia, to 3 FireTeams (TrinityOfTrinities), to 6 Squad subunits, to 4 Platoons.


Leadership of Battalions, Brigades, Regiments and higher

At this point, the subunits start as Companies, in a Battalion. A Battalion has 4 Companies, a Leader Company and 3 operational Companies/Battalion. The Leader Company is known as the HHC Company.

Brigades, Regiments and higher are built of 3 Operational subunits and a Leader Company. For example, a Brigade will have 3 Battalions and its HHC Company. A Regiment, also with 3 Ops Battalions. Both led by HHC Leader Companies. A Division will have 3 Brigades or 3 Regiments, and its HHC Leader Company.

All start to have a Headquarters and Headquarters Company, in which to organize everything: S1 through S12; and be operational, with full staffing. Some Headquarters Companies may have smaller staffing and may not have all staff offices.


Regiment Structure

  • 1 Right Parish STAARRKRegiment(2122 Militia) =
  • 3 LION Battalions/Regiment(2122)
    and +++ *** 1 Reg’t HHC Company *** +++(166)
  • X 3 CONSigliari Companies/Battalion(652)
    and +++ *** 1 Battn HHC Company *** +++(166)
  • X 3 STARLight Platoons/CONS Company(162)
    and +++ *** 1 Company Leader STAROfDavid Platoon *** +++(54)
  • X 6 TrinityOfTrinties TOTSquads/SOD Platoon(54) {
    • X 3 FART FireTeams/Squad(9)
    • X 3 Sheep Militia/FireTeam }
  • = 2122 Militia

Tetrahedrons from Companies and up. A Regiment holds Battalions of Companies, each a Tetrahedron organizing principle. Companies as the bottom nodes.
