I've been toying with the idea of modeling fire teams for a while and I
think I have them where I want them. At least, in theory... Using a
Platoon Leader and a Platoon Sergeant as separate command units makes a
lot of sense in this regard. I had intended on having each of these
units transfer an action to a specific squad, but if I allow each to
transfer a single action to a squad (or up to two actions to two
different fire teams), it preserves the "one command unit can transfer
two actions, total" rule.

I like this rule! I'm going to steal it. Hope you don't mind! *S*
