Size of an Imperial Guard Regiment

Following on from my previous post about the Table of Organisation of a standard Imperial Guard infantry regiment, here is the total breakdown of troops and vehicles for such a unit, based on the following:

1 Squad = 10 people
1 Platoon = 3 squads + command (35)
1 Company = 3 Platoons + command (110)
1 Battalion = 3 Companies + command (335)

Chimera - driver, radio operator/gunner, commander/gunner (3 crew)
Leman Russ - driver, radio operator/hull gunner, commander, gunner, sponson gunners (6! crew)
Hellhound - as Chimera (3 crew)
Griffon - driver, radio operator/gunner, mortar commander, mortar operator (4 crew)
Hydra -driver, radio operator/gunner, commander, gunner (4 crew)
Salamander - driver, radio operator/gunner, commander, gunner, a/gunner (5 crew)
Sentinel - driver (1 crew)

So you have:

1 Battalion of Grenadiers (335)
2 Battalions of Infantry (670)
1 Tank Battalion (3 Leman Russ, 9 Demolisher, 9 Hellound, 9 Griffon -  135 crew)
1 AAA Company (1 Salamander, 9 Hydras - 41 crew)
2 Sentinel Companies (2 Salamanders, 18 Sentinels - 28 crew)
2 Battalion Command Staff (20)
1 Regimental Command Staff (12)
1 Provost Platoon (35)
2 Battalion Aid Posts (2 Aid Chimeras - 6 crew, plus 8 medicae)
1 Regimental Aid Post (4 Aid Chimeras - 12 crew, 16 medicae)
2 Battalion Engineseer Detachments (2 Atlas - 6 crew, 4 Trojan - 16 crew, 1 Chimera - Techpriest, 4 Servitors, 3 crew)
1 Regimental Engineseer Detachment (2 Atlas - 6 crew, 4 Trojan - 16 crew, 1 Chimera - Techpriest, 4 Servitors, 3 crew)
Commissariat (12)
Ecclesiarchical Parish (10)

For a total of 1,390 personnel, 2 Techpriests and 8 servitors.

So each basic Infantry Regiment has a minimum of 1,400 bodies - more if it’s a 5-squad-platoon Regiment, or a 5-company battalion regiment, or adds a Weapons Company, or is a Siege Regiment… etc.
