Thanks for the clarification.

I think it works out about the same either way,
I just wanted to know if I was missing something 

But as I said I like the Fire Team concept as it
better fits the ITTT forces. It give the smallest
unit more flexibility (but also has drawbacks).

Basic Economic Threat Response Unit (Platoon):
	   Mission Leader 
		 |   \
		 |  Support Staff (rest of HQ unit)
      | 	   | | | | |	    |	      |
Enforcement Unit  EU |EU |EU  Specialist Unit SU
      | 	    EU	EU    (Mission specific 
   ----------------	       attachment from
   |	  |   |   |	       company level. 
Security  S   S*  S*	       [Engineer, EW, etc.])
*May have support weapon
 (GMS/P, PPG)	
In some ways this arrangement is more flexible than
a regular command. But it can also be less flexible
when transfering activation from command.

Temporary groupings of EUs may be made by the use
of a communication action by the mission leader and
a reorganize action by each EU. This allows for 
multiple EUs to be activated at once, but they must
remain within unit integrety distance (or use 
detachment rules). Reverting to the standard
organization only takes a communication action from
the mission leader. All EUs are treated as an individual unit except
they are activated together. Each EU maintain thier own leadership and
confidence markers. No leadership transfer is possible between the
grouping leaders (no true command for the group, all are just waiting
the 'go' command from the Mission Leader). No more than 2 EUs
may be grouped together in this manner.
Basic ETRU with temporary grouped EU:
	   Mission Leader 
		 |   \
		 |  Support Staff (rest of HQ unit)
      | 	   |   |   |   |   |   |
Temp Action Group EU  EU  EU  EU  SU  SU
    |	|		  
   EU  EU
