Rifles companies contain three platoons each, along with a four-man staff. Each platoon is led by a lieutenant or a second lieutenant and numbered within their regiment. The four man staff consists of a commander, a second in command, a sergeant major and a quartermaster sergeant.

Companies are typically deployed on missions together, and will breakoff into platoons.
