Already after the first combat experiences in North Africa at the turn of 1942-1943, the US Army changed the position of the US infantry division. From 1943, each infantry division had three full-time infantry regiments, each consisting of three infantry battalions. In addition, the infantry regiment also included other units, for example: an anti-tank company, an artillery company or a staff company. In total, the US Army Infantry Regiment numbered approximately 3,100 soldiers. It should also be remembered that the division also included a strong artillery component consisting of four artillery battalions: 3 light and 1 medium, most often armed with 105 and 155 mm howitzers. There was also, among others, an engineering battalion, a repair company, a reconnaissance unit and a Military Police platoon. In total, the US Infantry Division numbered approximately 14,200 personnel as of 1943. It quite clearly dominated the artillery over the German division and had much better and most importantly fully motorized transportation, making it a highly mobile tactical formation . It also had much richer "individual" anti-tank weapons in the form of a large number of bazooka launchers, of which there were over 500 in the entire division.
