We didn't have battalion sized divisional components in HOI3
I get it you did not play the game? Partisans would show up as a regimental sized units that could be organized into a division. Just like in HoI4 you can have a division with as least as two regiments.
To claim that it was the equivalent of 20 divisions "operating" throughout the war is something completely different (outright silly even)
Not equivalent to divisions - they were divisions. Divisions of militia units - but organized like divisions non the less. And they fought like divisional formations not independent regiments.
Less than a handful during the entire war is "most"?
Yes, most. Most operations that were not sabotages were actual large formation fights. Communists had seven of those before the Russians came and Royalists had just as much (although they had them with both Germans and communist).
