There a differences in Sizes depending on the Type of battalion.

Infantry Battalion are, as you said, 300-400 Soldiers strong, usually compromised of 3-4 Companies, which those again consisting of 3-4 platoons.

Now, a tank battalion has the same basic structure: Battalion > Company > Platoon
On Platoon usually consists of 4-5 Tanks, one company about 15-20 and a battalion usually around 80 - 100.
But that's just the tanks, they do have troops - crews, technicians and general support staffs, so 150-200 personal.

It differs from army to army, but considering the Knight(mares) seem to be the "heavy weapons" akin to tanks in this series, you could probably estimate a knight-company to be in that same ballpark.

That would be true if the term used in this context is not coined after the fact, not the other way around :
Quote:
After hearing the reports of the guard and the destruction to the stronghold, the pilot's faces show shock and awe. Who would have known that a battalion level demon beast will show up at a place so far away from demon beast highway? A battalion level demon beast requires a battalion of silhouette knights (about 300) to defeat it. But there is only a squad (9) of silhouette knights stationed at this outpost, 10 silhouette knights if you include the captain. This is enough to keep duel level demon beast (equal to 1 silhouette knight in power), but is overwhelmingly under strength to challenge a battalion level demon beast.

nvm he already got it.
"A battalion level demon beast requires a battalion of silhouette knights (about 300) to defeat it."
A sentence from when the behemoth was reported to the town in ch5.
The Silhouette Knights are counted on a infantry level.

How can they see a man, if there isn't one there in the first place? Remember that Eru gender is an Hideyoshi.

I can't get the joke since Eru act really manly (as in not acting like Hideyoshi did, not GARmanly) but okay.

Yeah. Though Ernesti looks like a cute young girl that you want to hug to death, he does act manly. I for one wouldn't have dash off to fight Behemoth.

Well, at that time he was just excited to finally ride & fight in a giant robot. So a mix of bravado & childish whim I guess.

Eru's fight against Behemoth wasn't really bravery, but his specific kind of insanity. Behemoth was just convenient for a test drive.

Uh yeah okay sugarcoat it all you want, I consider that courage due to his confidence on his own strength fueled by his maniacal desire. It's not zero sum game, those emotions can coexist together. All the time during the fight, he can't be that clear headed if he were blinded by his obsession like you guys think.

BTW not related to Knights and Magic but Skythewood just picked up Altina the sword princess http://skythewood.blogspot.sg/2014/1...-princess.html . Here's the thread if you want to discuss about it http://forums.animesuki.com/showthre...=121507&page=4

IMO Eru's decision to face the Behemoth was both courageous and stupid.

^It's not discontinued, it's just the skythewood uses the light novel's Chinese RAWs. When volume 2 comes & he acquires it, he will continue as usual.

Although a new interesting project is rather welcome.

Sky uses the chinese version of the light novels, of which, vol 1 just came out in August.

He's not doing the web novel version because there's too many changes between versions.

Speaking of which, do we have any idea of when the Chinese version of vol2 will be out?

Really? Except the beginning where the order of events were changed I didn't see much a change in the rest of vol 1.
