Default LC Large Infantry Squads

The Russians start out with 13-man infantry squads for Barbarossa (June '41).

1) Do these squads automatically downsize to 10 men later on, or must that be done manually with the "Change" routine?
2) Is there any disadvantage to leaving them at 13 men for the whole campaign (to April '45)?

Reason I ask is 'cuz the 10-man squads available have either F-1 grenades, AT mines or Molotovs for AT work. Since my guys already have Molotovs (Pen 9 vs AT mine Pen 6) there isn't much incentive to switch, except for easier transportability. Thanks.

My understanding is that no it doesn't happen automatically - you will have to use the change routine (in just the same way that your T34-76 don't auto upgrade to T34-85 later).

The only disadvantage is them not getting "newer" technology and being more difficult to transport - a lot less incentive with infantry than armour to "keep up" in WWII
