Question regarding IDF's 188th Barak Brigade (order)

Every where I've looked indicates 74th Sa'ar Battalion is the third battalion in the brigade...

If so... the barrel should have 3 stripes right?

I'm building the Meng's Merk 3D kit now and looking at the markings - scratching my head as I wondered where went wrong - is Sa'ar the 2nd Battalion as indicated in the kit or did I get the facts mixed up?

Can anyone in the know please help me clarify?

Thanks!

I wanted to know if "Sa'ar" IS the 2nd Battalion or 3rd Battalion of 188th Barak AB

Order of 188th Barak Armored Brigade:
1st bat = 53rd Sufa Armored Battalion (1 stripe)
2nd bat = 71st Reshef A B (2 stripes)
===> 3rd bat = 74th "Sa'ar" A B (3 stripes) ??


or is it:
===> 2nd bat = 74th Sa'ar A B (2 stripes) ??
3rd bat = 71st "Reshef" A B (3 stripes)

Information off Wiki says:
188th:
- 53rd "Sufa" (1st Bat)
- 71st
- 74th "Sa'ar" Battalion (3rd Bat ??)
- 605th... Armored Engineer Bat
- 188th Armored Recognaissance
- blah blah blah...

...I thought Sa'ar is 3rd Battalion (according to the references that is...)
