δίδοτε τάδε τὰ βαρέα ὁπλα τρισὶ τῶν ὁπλῑτῶν.

My translation: Give these heavy weapons to three of the hoplites.

Is this correct?

thank you

Perfect score, JM!
We might note that δίδοτε is formed on the present (progressive) stem, so the sense is "Keep giving."  Just "Give" (aorist) would be δότε.
