A squad is a military unit used by the UNSC Marine Corps in the organisation of its combat personnel. In the UNSC Marine Corps, a squad can consist of anywhere between eight to thirteen members[1][2] and can be further divided into fireteams for combat operations.

Composition[edit]

The UNSC Marine Corps does follow the general structure used by the 20th and 21st Century US Marine Corps, although exact numbers differ. Normally, a squad is composed of three fireteams of four or five Marines under the command of a non-commissioned officer, usually a Corporal. A Sergeant commands the squad as a whole.[3]

The UNSC may use a smaller system for Special Forces groups[3] such as the ODST and Naval Special Warfare units.

Squads within a platoon are numbered i.e. First Squad, Second Squad, and so forth, with a Platoon normally composed of at least two Squads, often three or four.
