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.

Candidate (CDT)

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.

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.

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: Regular Enlisted
Type: Senior Enlisted

Corporal (Cpl)

As the entry-level NCO rank, Corporal (Cpl) is a Junior NCO rank (JNCO) suitable for new and developing leaders to learn and develop before being promoted further.

Corporals are unit leaders and the most numerous of all NCOs in the task force. Like Sergeants, Corporals are responsible for individual training, personnel matters and the general status of their teams. Working as the 2IC (Assistant Section Commander) to a Section Commander, Corporals carry out the duties of the ASC, and in the case that the SC is absent, assume those as well.

On operations and deployments, Corporals are 2ICs, Fireteam and Squad Leaders, and also frequent training instructors..

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.
