an organizationally independent combat, administrative, or inventory unit of various combat arms in all armed services. The military unit consists of a body of control, combat, specialized, and rear subdivisions; for ex-ample, the regiment consists of battalions (or squadrons), the separate battalion consists of companies, and so on. When each military unit is formed, it is given an all-army name (for example, 3rd Tank Regiment) and a standard name (for ex-ample, military unit 55555). A military unit may be part of the composition of a large unit or subordinate to the Main Command.
