A scout platoon was a formation in the Imperial Army.


Twenty-nine men strong, the scout platoon was made up of two line squads commanded by a sergeant major, and a scout squadron headed by a lieutenant. A scout squadron was comprised of two scout lances, with the lieutenant replacing the sergeant in the command lance. Which officially in command of the entire platoon, the lieutenant delegated command of the "grunts" to the sergeant major while commanding the squadron.[1]

A scout platoon could be augmented by the addition of three more scout lances, and a line squad.[2]
