Default # of weapons of each type in infantry squads

Is there a quick way to see how many weapons of each type an infantry squad carries (e.g., for example 2 assault rifles and 6 regular rifles) in the unit encyclopedia? I know that if one hits 'w', one can see the weapons selection screen and correlate the numbering of the weapons to the number of shots for each type of weapon that the squad has. However, it'd be nice if this info was accessible in the unit encyclopedia or somewhere else that doesn't require an enemy unit to be in range and selected as a target.

Thanks for your help,

The game does not go into the micro-detail of "2 assault rifles" or "6 rifles", so that information is not available.

Perhaps you are mixing up the number of shots (or ammo) in a turn with number of rifles?.

The slot 1 weapon is multiplied by the total number of men, if it is a rifle type weapon, falling off over range. Slot 2 and higher rifles don't get multiplied, and are therefore for secondary weapons only carried by a few men.

(Planes though do have the number of barrels of MG or cannon. That is why plane weapons must be HE firers - as they use the AP ammo column as number of guns.)

Select the section, hit space - it will show the units weapons lines and ammo information. Or right-click on it for the same effect..
