Romanian Rifle Platoon 1941

Hello,

This topic is for the development of a Romanian Rifle Platoon in 1941. Please feel free to comment and help along the way with anything I write here!
From what i can gather the platoon was:
Platoon HQ – 5 men
1st or 2nd lieutenant with smg or pistol
Senior sergeant (Rifle)
3x runners (rifle)
3x Infantry Squads
1 sergeant as squad leader
Section 1 – LMG section – 1 corporal with rifle, 1 senior private with ZB30 LMG, 1 assistant gunner with rifle, 3 privates with rifles
Section 2 & 3 – Rifle sections – 1 corporal with rifle, 4 privates with rifles 


With the following support weapons at Battalion level (9 combat platoons):
3 AT rifles (/9 = 0.33 = 0-1)
4 60mm Mortars (/9 = 0.44 = 0-1)
8 HMGs (/9 = 0.88 = 0-1)

Therefore an initial stab at a platoon suggests:

Platoon HQ
1 1st or 2nd Lieutenant 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 3+ Beretta M1938 or Pistol Officer 20cm
1 Senior Sergeant 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 3+ 49- ZB24
3 Runner 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ 49- ZB24
May updgrade one Runner to a medic with a pistol
May upgrade two Runners to a sniper team for +1 Support Point

2x Rifle Squads
1x LMG Section
1 Sergeant 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ Rifle or Beretta M1938 NCO
1 Corporal 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ 49- ZB24 NCO
1 Gunner 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ Pistol, 7.92mm ZB M1930
1 Loader 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ 49- ZB24
3 Private 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ 49- ZB24

2x Rifle Section
1 Corporal 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ 49- ZB24 NCO
4 Private 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ 49- ZB24


May purchase an additional Infantry Squad:
1x LMG Section

1 Corporal 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ 49- ZB24 NCO
1 Gunner 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ Pistol, 7.92mm ZB M1930
1 Loader 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ 49- ZB24
1 Private 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ 49- ZB24

2x Rifle Section
1 Corporal 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ 49- ZB24 NCO
2 Private 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ 49- ZB24

May add an additional 1 Private with Rifle to each section for +1 Support Points. This may be taken twice

Company Support Choices
0-1 HMG (8mm Schwartzlose M1907/12)
0-1 AT Rifle (25mm Puteaux M1937)
0-1 60mm Mortar (Stokes-Brandt M1935)


Division Support Choices
Artillery (+1 Support Point)
1 Officer 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ 49- ZB24 or Pistol Forward Observer,
1 Assistant 20cm 4+ +3 5+ 4+ 49- ZB24 or Pistol Recon

0-1 37mm Bofors M36 AT Gun
0-1 81mm Stokes-Brandt mortar M27/31 or M39
0-1 Cavalry Recon Squad
0-1 47mm Schneider M36 Infantry Gun

Anyone have any more information on this? Or wants to hazard a guess at a CE, strategy rating or Special rules? Any contributions or comments welcome!

Thanks,
