The GIs (derived from ‘General Issue’, a nickname for US soldiers) of the rifle platoons form the core of your company.
These ‘dog faces’ were well trained and some have seen combat. They are also well known for their scrounging capabilities, augmenting their platoons with unauthorised weapons such as bazookas and submachine-guns stripped from transport vehicles. While strictly against the rules, the GIs know better than others that they’ll need the added firepower in the coming campaigns.
The triangular formation of an infantry division means that you can count on three rifle platoons in your company. This gives you flexibility to keep one platoon in reserve while the others hold the line.
