Because that site is about the 506th in the 101st of the Vietnam War. They changed from paratrooper ops. to helicopter/air assault ops. during the vietnam war. Today they are still an air assault unit and don't use paratroopers. The 82nd still does, as does the 173d AB. For the correct ww2 helmet markings, look here: http://wildbillguarnere.com/imageatt...1stsymbols.gif
Also, you're reading about the 506th Regiment. Brothers in Arms is based on the 502nd Regiment, which has different markings than the 506 (check the link).
now i know. W0W i didnt know 506th had a F company, ok so 506th is had up of like 30 battalions??? with each battalion having 3 companies in them including a hq Co. these companies are named A to Z. and every P.I.R is made up like this inculding the 502nd .
ok i know now but is the a Easy company in the 502nd P.I.R?????
That site covers the 506th throughout it's history, and you were looking at the battalion markings for the regiment in Vietnam. It has info for the 506th from WW2 up to today.
As for organization, Airborne divisions had 3 Parachute Infantry Regiments, 1 Glider Infantry Regiment, and A HQ Regiment (I may have missed one or two). Each Parachute Infantry Regiment had 3 Battalions, each with 3-4 companys. Each Company has 3-4 platoons, each platoon has 3-4 squads. There are different structures for regular infantry units and ranger battalions. There are also different individual battalions or companies or sections of engineers, demolitions men, etc. I'll try to find a more organized look at them all.
yeh but under the title is photos of ww2 F Co . E Co etc its correct the 506th PIR in ww2 did have alot of battalions 2nd battalion for example had dog , easy and fox companies with a white spear ok ok lets forget everything i said just tell me this:
was there a Easy company in the 502nd??? because there was a Fox company in the 506th and in the game we are Fox company in the 502nd
