Regular Enlisted Ranks Explained - United Task Force (UNITAF) - Arma 3
Regular Enlisted Ranks
Regular Enlisted members form teams (known as Fireteams on Operations) which are typically sized between 4-6 men on deployment and up to 8-10 for administrative units. Teams are headed up by a Corporal as the Section 2IC and multiple teams make up a Section.
Candidates are probationary members whose applications have been accepted, but are yet to report to Recruit Core Infantry Practice. It's the first of two probationary stages of the UNITAF joining process. During Candidate stage you report to Recruit Core Infantry Practice, or Candidate and Recruit specific operations, you cannot yet attend offical operations. At the end of Recruit Core Infantry Practice, you'll either be accepted as a recruit, or discharged.
