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.




Cpl
Corporal (Cpl)

As second-in-command of a Section, the Section 2IC (or Assistant Section Commander) assists the Section Commander in the administration and development of the members of the section; the smallest administrative unit in the task force containing typically up to 15 regulars. The roles and duties of Section 2ICs vary due to the discretion of the Section Commander. Typical duties include monitoring the progression of members of the section, handling administrative reports - delivering praise to members of the section who have overperformed and handling corrections of policy violations where members of the section have stepped outside of UNITAF policy.

Section 2IC is a Corporal (Cpl/E-4) billet position and rank is issued on the taking of the office - the rank belongs to the position and not the office holder. Section 2ICs are part of the NCO (Non-comissioned Officer) group, which comes with a number of other responsibilities and privileges, which can be found in the Administration SOP. Typical operational duties of Section 2ICs are Instructors, Team Leaders and on occasion Mission Support.

Section 2ICs report directly to the Section Commander, and should the Section Commander be away, on-leave or unreachable, assume the duties of the Section Commander and report directly to the Troop Commander.
