What this means is that by the time it reaches the Senior Command Level, a Fleet Admiral is responsible for at least 2837 people, and a Marshall is responsible for 3072. This is a goal we should strive for, but one which will likely be hard to reach. Initially, therefore, larger formations will be on a case by case basis, and likely geographically. As an example, 4 Fleets/Corps/Army Groups (Eastern North America, Western North America, Europe & Africa and South America, Australia & Asia). Each of those then sub-divided by 2.

Now, as a benefit, Marines, as they are usually ship borne, are counted toward your crew requirements. This would mean that if you have 10 people, and of those you have 2 RMN Officers, 1 RMMC Officer, 3 RMN Enlisted and 4 Marine Enlisted, you qualify for a Destroyer (DD) as opposed to a LAC. This will help in forming Chapters. Army Units, being mainly ground based, do count toward a Chapters over-all compliment, but do not count toward the minimum requirements. For example, if you have 1 RMN Officer, 1 RMMC Officer, 3 RMA Officers, 2 RMN Enlisted, 1 RMMC Enlisted and 7 RMA Enlisted, you have the crew compliment of a Light Cruiser (CL) but only the requirements for a LAC, which would be your assigned ship. This does not mean that you could not remain a LAC even if you had enough required crew to move up to the next level, as Chapter Type is discretionary, up to a point as it is our goal to slowly build the larger units. As an example, in an area that has 1 LAC and 1 Destroyer (DD), we would likely make the next ship a Destroyer (DD) to form a Destroyer Division (DesDiv).
