If you want some conversion advice, see
<> - it's got some notes on a
variety of conversions I did to GZG 15mm troops, including snipers, EW,
medics, and heavy weapons.

Definitly one/plt at most. Maybe only one/company, because snipers are
very powerful. Run them as independants.

Sounds about right. This is how mine run.

One GMS/P per squad, certainly. Anyone can carry an IAVR, though - so
some/all of your riflemen can have IAVRs as well, and probably should.

At least one/squad. Maybe two, depending.

I'd be tempted to run Medics as independant single figures - nominally
with the company command squad, but detached for action.

> Drone team - one per platoon at most.  Independant unit?

One/plt or less - these guys would probably be from the company level,
attatched to a specific plt for an operation. Independant, again.

> Crew-served weapons - one per platoon at most.  Independant unit.

Yes, and yes.

> What'd I miss?

That seems to be everything - have fun with the conversions, and let us
know how they went.
