ther problem with small contingents irregardless of how professional and
capable they may be is trying to integrate them effectively and
into a larger operation. While it might be easier when you have one
force (say div or larger with a  few attached independant battalions, it
becomes a larger hassle when the entire force is made up of a hodgepodge
bn-brigade sized units.

Units may have potentially different supply requirements, different
cultural requirements and different levels of commitment that are agreed
upon by their political leadership. (i.e. some contingents are to avoid
major combat operations). As the level of intensity of the operation
so does the ability of the hodgepodge force to effectively operate, thus
potentially you lose some of the benefit of having a load higher quality
smaller units...
