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.

Sergeant (Sgt)

As the most numerous of all NCOs, Sergeants collectively make up the core Leadership of the task-force. Sergeants typically wield significant influence both among other NCOs and the Officers they report to.

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 sections as the Section Commander with the support of a number of Corporals, and report directly to a Troop Commander, they must be unquestionably competent as this rank is not a suitable position for learning on the job.

During Deployments and Operations, Sergeants can be found Fireteam Leading, Squad Leading or performing a number of HQ roles, such as Forward Air Control, Platoon Sergeants or Platoon Commanders. Sergeants also form a key part of the Instructing staff, and will be found instructing courses and correcting SOP across all areas.

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.

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 and conduct in grade.

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.

Much like their Sergeant counterparts on Operations, Staff Sergeants can be found Fireteam Leading, Squad Leading or performing a number of HQ roles, such as Forward Air Control, Platoon Sergeants or Platoon Commanders..

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.
