Same here. I spent most of my time in Airborne weapons squads, and we never had 3 gun teams. The most full weapons squad I was a part of had 2 full gun teams, and 2 AT/anti armor guys. In reality though they rarely get any training on AT platforms, and usually get sliced out to someone else or turn in to AB's once anything chaotic happens to manning. 

When I was in Leg land...I mean the 25th ID....the AT guys were in a HQ weapons section with the mortars...

I always thought the weapons squad should have 3 2man MG teams, one for each rifle squad...then maybe 3 AT guys..again one for each squad...
