	For mechanized infantry, each squad could easily be
assigned the squad APC, or they could be a separate squad
at the platoon level, or a separate platoon at the company
	Any company or higher command element will have a few 
utility vehicles, of course.

	Depends on how advanced you mean.  Some kind of back-pack
radio is reasonable on the platoon level, and necessary on the
company level.	However, if you have trans-galactic range FTL
neutrinos transmitter for each squad, I'd be guessing you aren't
playing in the same SG2 background as the rest of us.

	6 guys out of 54 sounds a bit high to me, personally.
But in principle, I can't see why each platoon couldn't have
it's own recon element.
