The organization of the Dragonregiment (cavalry regiment) is somewhat unclear. It is possible that the three regiments had different organization. Anyway, none of them were setup entirely according to plan. In general the regiments seems to have one section mounted on horses/horse drawn and one section mounted on bicycles/motorized. Each section had one MG-squadron but the number of rifle squadrons seems to vary.

For D.R.1 on paper organization was totally disregarded.
D.R.2 mobilized two horse mounted squadrons and one bicycle squadron in addition to the MG-squadrons. They also mobilized a number of improvised units.
D.R.3 mobilized one horse mounted squadron and two bicycle squadrons in addition to the MG-squadrons.

The mortar unit is called tropp (platoon) in D.R.2 and eskadron (squadron) in D.R.3, but in booth cases it only contained two mortars.
Support troops were organized under the staff squadron, with some functions distributed to the combat squadrons.
