Figure 14-3.-(Continued . . . and in the war with Barbary Powers. An official version of the Hymn was issued in 1929. Marine Division Marine Aircraft Wing The  Marine  Division  is  the  basic  ground  or- ganization of the FMF. Organized as a combined arms  team,  it  includes  service  units  needed  for sustained combat. A division consists of three in- fantry  regiments;  an  artillery  regiment;  a  head- quarters battalion with service, motor transport, military police, and communications capabilities; a reconnaissance battalion; a tank battalion; a light armored infantry battalion; a combat engineer bat- talion; and an assault amphibian battalion. Each infantry  regiment  is  composed  of  three  infantry battalions. An infantry battalion, the basic tactical unit of the division, contains four rifle companies, a weapons company, and a headquarters and ser- vice  company.  Rifle  companies  are  further  divided into  three  platoons,  each  with  three  squads  of three  fire  teams,  and  a  weapons  platoon. The   Marine   aircraft   wing   (MAW)   is   the highest-level  tactical  aviation  command  in the  FMF.  Its  structure  makes  it  capable  of providing   all   types   of   air   support   required in   tactical   air   operations.   Each   of   the   exist- ing   wings, although   varying   in   size,   is   a balanced   combat   force   task-organized   into various   aircraft   groups.   These   groups   are composed   of   squadrons,   which   provide   air- craft,  support  equipment,  and  personnel  re- quired   to   perform   assigned   missions.   Each wing  has  a  variety  of  aircraft—attack,  fighter attack,   reconnaissance,   electronic   countermea- sures,    transport,   and   rotary   wing.   Depend- ing   on   the   model   of   the   aircraft   assigned, a   squadron   will   have   from   10   to   24   air- craft. 14-5
