Ah, did you ask France if they were making it, and if they were willing to sell to Mexico? ;)

I haven't decided which way to go, and Mexico hasn't bought anything from France. Also the armored car will probably be of Mexican design unless Wes decides to use said vehicle. So if I did go with the Hotchkiss design it would probably only be as a base for looks. The actual car would look sufficiently different to not be a copy.

Nowhere near an expert on land forces so lots of guesswork going on here. Does it look reasonable?

Composition of a regular Mexican infantry division:

3 - 4,000 man brigades

3 - 1,000 man battalions (one motorized), equipped with 7/57 Mausers 36 rifles, 7/57 Mendoza 34 LMGs, 81mm mortars, and 30cal HMGs
1 - 1,000 man support battalion, includes three 15 gun 75mm batteries
3 - 15 car reconnaissance squadrons

1 - 3,000 man special weapons brigade

1 - 1,000 man cavalry battalion
1 - 15 tank squadron, AT-31M
3 - 15 gun AT batteries, 47mm
3 - 15 gun AA batteries, 25.4mm
1 - 15 plane squadron, light recon
? - misc other units
