The Ranger Squad is a 6-man elite heavy-infantry unit fielded by the American Infantry Company in Company of Heroes. Easily the most expensive American Infantry squad, it certainly justifies this cost. The strength of the unit comes primarily from its equipment: It carries two M9 Bazooka anti-tank launchers on creation, making it one of the strongest anti-tank infantry squads in the game.
The Ranger Squad can be further upgraded with M1 Thompson SMGs to add powerful close-combat anti-infantry capabilities. The unit also has two useful combat abilities, and is significantly more survivable than other infantry units. Rangers often operate in large platoons, surrounding the enemy and destroying any asset he may field to oppose them.
