Question Help with Wargaming Legend

Can anybody point me to a wargaming source that'll translate the
organizational chart at the bottom of this page ?

http://librarydata.jtas.net/LibraryD...eahleikhoi.htm

I didn't see anything in Striker Books 1-4 or on Wiki.

Cheers!

Try this wikipedia page. There are probably better sources, but that should get you started. The unit type symbols are about halfway down, specifically unit icons and unit sizes.

Thanks missing the crossed arrows and the Solomani symbol but this is good for now.

Crossed arrows typically denote special forces units - Rangers, commandos, raiding detachments, etc. Looks like the regiment has some sort of platoon-sized special ops contingent.

The "Solomani" symbol is probably a medical section.

Hope this helps a bit. They look like standard military mapping symbols. I used to have to mess with a lot of map overlays when I was in the Army.

You can find most of those in the back of Striker II or in MT Rebellion Sourcebook (but not all), and they seem to be using fairly standard US Military/NATO symbology.

Top, downward
Infantry Regiment
HQ detachment (unspecified size)
HQ Battalion (3 of them) _ _ 9 Infantry ¿Companies? _ _ Transport ¿Squadron? _ _ Fighter Group
Combat Engineering Platoon
2 Recon Platoons
3 Infantry Platoons
2 Artillery Platoons
Jump Infantry Platoon (See Invasion Earth for provenance)
¿SolSec? Section (Probably)

The Teahleikhoi are an Aslan mercenary regiment operating in the Reaver's Deep, once the sole province of the Keith Brothers. I think the organisational chart comes from 'old FASA's' Aslan Mercenary Cruisers (or Ships, if forget which term). If you can't find it there, then checking back issues of High Passage would probably be helpful.

I don't own either the 'Ships' or the issue of HP that would deal with them, but I'm wondering if the symbol at the bottom might be a screens unit. Otherwise, it might be an armor company. The standard symbol for armor is a horizontal oval, which might have been difficult to produce with their font program. My fiancee is a typesetter and runs into stuff like this all the time.

Pretty close to what I got (actually I mean that the other way around, I got close to the intention of the poster and original author )

Thanks!

I've got HP #4 and it details the Caledon Highlanders -- another Keith creation. Interestingly he credits John Harshman & Frank Chadwick for the "organizational info" and creating one of the battalions (each respectively) and I thought they (Keiths) were all War Gamers Par Excellence.

I played Squad Leader once or twice way back during my first exposure to Traveller, but I didn't care for the abstraction level (or battling fleets o' starships).


Thanks!

Oh cool. It looks like that Aslan regiment Teahleikhoi is employing a Solomani platoon.

Since Aslan are honor-bound, the all-Solomani platoon is probably employed to do the.... 'dirty work'. Like dishonorable cowardly sneak attacks. Dishonorable camouflage ambushes. And killing and intimidating civilians. Torturing captives. And executing injured enemy combatants via coup de grace. Typical Solomani specialties, of course.
