NOTES: Personnel and equipment allotments for this formation from this source are very much based on what was clearly allocated. Each Troop also has a Service Platoon, with its own Platoon HQ, Maintenance Section, and Supply Section. In this instance the decision was made not to provide details for those units The fighting elements of the Copyright – Joseph Trevithick (2012)

Troop are complete. While troop carrying helicopters in the Aero-Rifle Platoon were authorized fixed forward weapons kits, these were found to be seriously detrimental to the aircrafts performance while loaded and were seldom used. What is interesting is that the 1965 edition of FM 17-36 featured a slightly modified version of the TOE, but the Gseries TOE was not approved until 1966.
