Here is a question for you.  Does the Sgt. count as a regular?  For example, Blood Berets's is 4~8 regular but 2 optional HMG and 1 optional tank hunter?

I'm assuming if I have 1 Sgt + 8 regulars, I can field all 3 specialists then?

thank

That would be correct....3:1 ratio.

Like PFC_Joe said, Sgts. don't count as specialists.

an easy way to think about it is for every 4 (grunt) or 3 (elite) REQUIRED models, you get one OPTIONAL model. It lists them under one of these designations in the book. So since a Sgt/Decurion/Leader etc are all required they count as one of the (4) or (3) needed models to get an optional one.

I would think for the 2nd specialist in the squad, you can use sgt. for that.  A squad of grunts with 2 specialists would consist 1 sgt., 7 grunts and 2 specialists then?

Correct, if the Sergeant is a required model, which they are in the majority of UWZ squads.

So, assuming that the Sergeant is required, in a Grunt squad consisting of 1 Sergeant and 7 Troopers, you may have up to 2 Squad Specialists.

Sgts count towards the trooper numbers, thus 4-8 troopers will be 5-9 with a Sgt. added in. Sorry I missed this question.
