After taking heavy casualties in the siege of Tobruk, infantry units in Africa were reorganised to have 'fewer men, more weapons'. Each company was organised as a self-contained battlegroup with its own anti-tank and artillery capability. This allowed the tanks to operate independently from the infantry, giving them the freedom to manoeuvre against the enemy.
