A Platoon is a basic military formation typically comprised of three squads of identical composition or complimentary nature, as seen in Headquarters Platoons.
A platoon is generally commanded by a Lieutenant-equivalent (OF-1/O-1 or O-2) officer, such as an Optio.
Three platoons plus a HQ Platoon form a Century.
