NOTES: Personnel and equipment allotments for this formation from this source are very much based on what was clearly allocated. Each Troop also has a Service Platoon, with its own Platoon HQ, Maintenance Section, and Supply Section. In this instance the decision was made not to provide details for those units The fighting elements of the Troop are complete. While troop carrying helicopters in the Aero-Rifle Platoon were authorized fixed forward weapons kits, these were found to be seriously detrimental to the aircrafts performance while loaded and were by this TO&E replaced by the option of M60 machine guns mounted on bungee cords (free M60). When deployed to Vietnam the Heavy Aero-Scout Section was often combined into the Aero-Weapons Section for a total of 8 helicopters. This became the standard organization by 1969.
