A more balanced (and useful) ORBAT IMO would be:

Line Sqd   Line Sqd   Line Sqd	  Heavy Wpns

Line Squad (7):
1 x Leader + ACR
1 x Specialist (medic, comms, EW etc) + ACR
4 x ACR + IAVR
1 x SAW

Heavy Weapons Squad (7):
1 x Leader + ACR
2 x GMS/L or RFAC/2 (Anti-air or Anti-Armour)
2-4 x ACR or SMG (support personnel for heavy weapons)

Specific to your scenario though, I would put one line squad on each
side of
the road and a heavy weapon team as a "stopper" to take out the lead
Mixing assets too heavily in the same squad degrades performance of your
entire force.

I'm setting up squads like this:

7 soldiers, including Squad Leader, armed with ACRs
1 soldier armed with a SAW.

For every 2 squads substitute 1 Anti-Aircraft Rocket Launcher for an
If Intelligence says it will be a high threat air environment 1 AARL per

Is it reasonable to have each ACR equipped soldier carrying 1 IAVR?

I'd assume firing an IAVR takes an action so no more than 2 could fire
without an action transfer.

That brings up a scenario.  A platoon of infantry/cavalry in associated
MICVs, the organic artillery vehicle (locked down), and a heavy tank,
travelling on a road in mountainous terrain.  They are ambushed by 2(?)
in squads.  Victory conditions: eliminate 3 vehicles and escape with no
than 20% wounded/killed.

All vehicles are hover and can't reach the attackers.

Is this reasonable?  Suggestions welcome.

My platoon is back from the painters and I'm basing as fast as I have
I want to game.  :)

Also, if they have assigned MICVs that makes them cavalry, correct?
