Not necessarily - you could use the armoured battalion HQ to build an infantry battlegroup. Say you gave your regiment three infantry battalions and one armoured, four companies to a battalion. If the armoured battalion swaps one of it's companies with one from an infantry battalion, you'd effectively end up with three infantry battlegroups, one of them slightly weaker for lacking a manoeuvre support company and being commanded by an armoured battalion HQ.
Only two things are infinite - the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the universe: Albert Einstein.

Right. From IA3, the 114th Mechanised Regiment.

Hope that helped, I've no idea how realistic an organisation it is. If you're interested in having an armoured company, there's a similar regimental listing for an armoured regiment earlier in the book. If you'd like, I could list the contents of a standard tank company for you.
