A pretty open ended question there.
An APC  Troop,  a Recon Troop, or perhaps a Tank Troop ?????

I think it has varied over the years, but an M113 APC troop use to have 13 and could lift an Infantry Company.
Inf Coy HQ - 1x APC
3x Inf Platoon - 4x APC each (an APC Section) = 12 APC.


I think a Tank Troop has 4x tanks.

Cavalry Troop ... no idea  :)

I seem to remember it also depends on when/what period you are discussing.

Tank Troop, 1960s & 1990s: four: eg
11, Troop leader - Lt or 2Lt
11A Troop Sgt
11B Troop Corporal
11C Corporal
