Team Ranks Explained - United Task Force (UNITAF) - Arma 3

Team Ranks

Teams (known as Fireteams on Operations) are typically sized between 4-6 men on deployment and up to 8-10 for administrative units. Teams are headed up by a Corporal and multiple teams make up a Section. Almost all members of the Task Force belong to a team.

Candidate (CDT)

Candidates are probationary members whose applications have been accepted, but are yet to report to Basic Infantry Training. It's the first of two probationary stages of the UNITAF joining process. During Candidate stage you report to Basic Infantry Practices, or Candidate and Recruit specific operations, you cannot yet attend offical operations. At the end of basic infantry training, you'll either be accepted as a recruit, or discharged.

Specialist (SPC)

Privates who do not take on additional responsibilities or administration can achieve promotion through technical skills as a Specialist, comparable to Corporal at grade (E-4) affording the ability to deploy to E-4 grade roles without restriction, however SPC do not form part of the organisational chain of command and is therefore outranked by Corporal. Promotion to Specialist requires the completion of advanced training combined with extensive experience in the form of operational hours and practice hours.

Grade: E-4
Level: Team
Type: Enlisted

Master Specialist (MSP)

Master Specialist (MSP) is the highest attainable enlisted rank. It represents the pinnacle of experience, knowledge, both of SOP and skill. MSPs do not have any additional administration responsibilities yet are a vital asset to often less-experienced NCOs, SNCOs and Officers and will often act as enlisted advisors. Promotion to Master Specialist is rare, the rank is comparable to Sergeant at grade (E-5), however not being part of the chain of command it is still outranked by Corporal at grade (E-4).

Grade: E-5
Level: Team
Type: Enlisted

Corporal (Cpl)

Corporals are unit leaders and the most numerous of all NCOs in the task force, responsible for a unit size up to 10 administratively. Like Sergeants, Corporals are responsible for individual training, personnel matters and the general status of their teams. Due to their role the Corporals are very much the backbone of the organisational leadership.

As an NCO they continually demonstrate a positive attitude, maturity and a willingness to not only volunteer their leadership, but to provide their valued feedback and input both in game and out.
