Hello, gentelmen!
Could You help me with some quest. about rumanian TEO? For example. How many LMG were in inf. platoon 22/06/41  3 or 4? How many persons were in Rum. ID from II Esh (for ex  in 15. ID)? Because i met about 13500, but I think what is not correct. That were number person and carts/car/horses in division train according TEO? P.S. I am sorry for my terrible English. :(

There was one ZB 30 LMG for each section of infantry and one platoon had three sections, thus there were 3 LMGs per platoon.
The theoretical strength and equipment is not really relevant since, like most things in Romania, theory and practice differ a lot. I will try to see if I can find some numbers for the 15th ID in 1941.

Thank You, Sir.
In this cause I have next question. In inf. company we should have 9 LMG, on batalions level  27 (in heavy weapons company we have not LMG?) and on regiments level  81 (i think, in regiments comand and heavy weapons companies we have not nave LMG again). For regiments reconnaissance company we have 9 (or, may be, 11) LMG. Well 3x(81+9)  It is give us 270 LMG for 3 inf. regiment. In sapper battalion we have 27 LMG (1LMG x 3 sect x 3 plt. x 3 cop.) In division reconnaissance company we have 24 (or, may be, 21) LMG. Total we have: 270 + 27 + 24 = 321 LMG According http://www.worldwar2.ro/organizare/?article=20 in IDiv were 410 LMG. There i should find about 90 LMG? Did it were in gun regiments? And another question. Did rum. ID have antitank rifles (25 mm Pauteaux M1937) in companies command group (esp. in 1941)? Thank in advace. (I sorry again for my language)

Is there a similar table for 1944 Cavalry Divisions (mounted, motorized or armored)?
What was the superior unit of Cavalry squadron (which was company level)?
