    A wild guess - size ? Or maybe composition ?

    Wasn't the first unit in Liberia a motor battalion?

    There is a load of Units missing,

    for example;

    Camp Command Cyprus

    SFOR

    EUFOR

    Whatever it is now FOR

    EUMM
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    If it's like us, a Battalion is just that; an Infantry Group (or a Battle Group for us) is a fighting force consisting of an Infantry Battalion and attached sub-units (Armour, Arty, Engineers, CIMIC, Logs etc...) all under command of the Inf Batt CO.

    in the case of KFOR, an inf gp was basically an inf coy with a logs coy and a HQ element etc.

    basically think of a Bn consisting of only 1 inf coy but with the necessary support assets indigenous.

    I think the total strengths in KFOR Inf Gps was around 220 pers but I may be a little off so I stand to be corrected.

    UNIFIL 1 Bns were in the region 600 and MINURCAT Bns were a little over 410.

    Its simple.Unit size greater than a Coy but less than a Bn.

    Interesting; we call that a Combat Team. A Battle Group normally consists of 3 or 4 Combat Teams.

    I thought in the Congo the Inf Gp was made up of a Batallion and more.
