Rules question:Kampfgruppe Kästner SMG platoon and pioneers

Had a quick question.

Looking at the Kampfgruppe Kastner PDF, and it mentions that like any Grenadier company, one platoon may be upgraded to a pioneer platoon. The wording for the rule

If your Grenadierkompanie has three Grenadier Platoons, you may upgrade the smallest Grenadier Platoon to a Grenadier Pioneer Platoon for +15 points per squad. This converts the Command team and every rifle/MG team into Pioneer teams with the same armament. Grenadier Pioneer Platoon may have a horse-drawn Pioneer Supply Wagon for an additional +20 points.

On top of that, you can also swap out all rifle/mg teams in one platoon for SMG teams

Only one Grenaider Platoon in the company may replace its Rifle/MG teams with SMG teams.
The question I have is, am I able to do both these upgrades with the same platoon, I.E. have an SMG equipped pioneer platoon? From the way I;m reading it, I think it would be ok, but Easyarmy doesn;t allow me to do so, as it has both options available for the third platoon but you can't take both at the same time.

Just trying to make sure I;m reading this right, I don;t think it would be a big deal but I'd hate to do something I'm not allowed to do normally. From the way everything is worded, I think its ok to have both upgrades

Cool thanks. Probably a good thing, since I shouldn't be sicking SMG's on tanks if I can help it
