Squad

A squad is a military unit consisting of several soldiers, larger than a fireteam but smaller than a platoon. In most armies a squad consists of between eight (8) and twelve (12) soldiers, sometimes as many as fourteen (14).

In the United States Army, a squad is composed of two fireteams, or 8-10 infantry.
