How come soviet platoon HQs only have a single man?

Recommended Posts

....as opposed to 4 men for a german platoon HQ.

I have been wondering about this for a while.

This makes them extremely vulnerable obviously and you're naturally inclined to keep them in the back so they don't get killed by a stray bullet, putting the whole platoon out of command. Was it really so? They have no radios ok but no assistant or messengers? I think it is like this in Black Sea too if I am not mistaken. So what's the rationale behind it?
