Do we have enough regiments?

Just been re-reading the FAS documents, the discussion of which has centred on the cuts to the infantry.

However, thinking about the RAC...
This will allow an armoured regiment to re-role to formation reconnaissance, and provide each of the armoured and mechanised brigades with its own reconnaissance regiment. It will also provide each of the armoured regiments in the mechanised brigades with a CVR(T) squadron ...
Given that each armoured and mechanised brigade with therefore have an armoured and a reconnaissance regiment each (total 10 regiments) plus the NBC regiment, that leaves no further regiments to be part of (or support) the lighter brigades.

Aren't we a regiment (or two) short? Or are my sums wrong?
