Section Command Ranks Explained - United Task Force (UNITAF) - Arma 3



Section Command Ranks

Sections (known as Squads operationally) are groups of usually 2 but sometimes 3 Teams or Fireteams. They contain up to 14 men operationally and anywhere up to 18 men administratively. Sections are headed up by a Sergeant or Staff Sergeant with the support of multiple Corporals.




Sgt
Sergeant (Sgt)

Although not the lowest level of rank where command is exercised, this one has the greatest impact on others. Sergeants can at all times report the status and activity of all members of their unit. Sergeants are responsible for the conduct and training of all members of their unit, including the Corporals under their Command.

Sergeants command units at a size of up to 25 administratively, with the support of a number of Corporals. They must be unquestionably competent as this rank is not a suitable position for learning on the job.

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.

SSgt
Staff Sergeant (SSgt)

The Staff Sergeant rank closely parallels that of the sergeant in duties and responsibilities.. Promotion to SSgt can be gained by an experienced or seasoned Section Commander, with a period of time in grade. They may command a larger number of personnel than is normally permitted, or more likely a larger number of NCOs than a typical Sergeant.

The staff sergeant is in regular contact with a large number of personnel and generally has more administrative duties. The SSG is responsible for the continued successful development of both corporals and sergeants as well as the soldiers in their section or team.

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.
