#5 ..yes, a company. Roughly 40 per platoon, 3 platoons per company, plus company overhead [ones and twos for supply, maint, admin, trans, med, etc].

#6 A Special Forces Company or "B Team" is comprised of a small HQ element [Company Commander, XO, SGM, S-3, S-4, Supply Sergeant, a few other enlisted] and 4 to 5 "A Team's" of twelve men each. Less than 80 folks if my memory serves me correctly.
