when last i checked it was a three company battalion of 15 M1 now upgraded to A1's per company. they had retained the 3 platoon concept of 5 tanks which the USA changed.

here is an older TOE of the USMC from 2001....force structure remains much the same.... equipment up grads ntl have occured.

you could probably get a more current one at the USMC homepage if you dig.

I don't believe the Marines have Strykers, they have LAV's. A tank battalion is just that, a tank battalion. Any infantry would come from an infantry battalion attached to them. The same with any LAV's or amphibious troop transports.

Correct. USMC combined arms units are formed as Task Forces out of platoons, companys, and battalions. The TF composition is situationally driven not following a TO.

The LAV are not used as infantry vehicals like the Stryker. They belong to the recon. Tho the automatic cannon are welcome as fire support.
