First and foremost everyone is an infantryman, but beyond specialised roles there are core infantry roles common throughout all fireteams, squads and platoons.
Field Leadership covers the primary front-line leadership roles, all the way from team leadership, right the way up to company level combined arms. Field Leadership is the realm of NCOs, SNCOs and Officers.
Medical roles are support roles concerned with the triage and treatment of battlefield casualties. They may involve medical evacuation duties (MEDIVAC) and the construction of Battle Aid Stations (BAS) or Casualty Collection Points (CCP)
Anti-armour roles are vital to countering enemy armour units, be it light or heavy, as well as bunkers and installations. AT Infantryman perform normal riflemen duties, and transition into their anti-armour role as and when required.
Marksmanship is a core skill of the infantry and good marksman are key asset covering long range weapons platforms from Machineguns to Rifles and Snipers. They are able to accurately hit targets and group shots over long distances.
Communicators are experts in radio telephony, communicating vital transmissions across the battlefield in quick succession can often save lives, and lead to a successful mission.
Such roles usually act in support of the mission itself, or the front line operations via long-range support assets. Engineers provide a key tactical edge to teams encountering enemy minefields or while breaching compound walls or disposing of enemy assets or installations.
Not all roles are combative and some important roles require that not a single bullet is fired. Mission Support covers active roles not directly related to the friendly force, such roles could be CIVFOR, INDFOR and OPFOR supporting roles, roleplaying or Zeus activity.
Cavalry roles cover wheeled and tracked vehicle roles from light armoured to heavy armoured used as both fire support, infantry troop transport and supply and covoy operations.
Aircrews provide a vital transport and logistical boost to infantry forces, for reconnaissance, fire support, logistics and transport.
UNITAFs core functions are handled by the administrative staff in the Organisational Chain of Command (ORGCOC). Those staff hold a number of positions which support the decentralised functions of the Task Force.
