"Bare is the back of the brotherless man."



Platoon is in charge of all elements on the battlefield. As the only element with direct communication to Command, Platoon is responsible for carrying out the mission objectives by issuing orders to any Squad or asset under their command.

A Platoon element is always accompanied by a Logistics and Medical elements, who not only support the Platoon as specialists, but also run the Platoon's logistical operations.

Platoon Leader

The Platoon Leader is in charge of all Squads, vehicles or air assets in the field and may issue orders to all of them. It is the Platoon Leader’s responsibility to determine and communicate a plan for completing all objectives assigned to them using the assets at their disposal.

When giving orders, the Platoon Leader is expected to send them down the chain of command via Squad Leaders. A Platoon Leader should refrain from directly manging squads or detailing plans beyond what is necessary for a Squad Leader to carry out their objectives. The Platoon Leader may require a Squad to take special equipment.

Platoon Sergeant

The Logistics Sergeant is typically in charge of managing the logistics required for the Platoons success. It is their duty to communicate with Squads regarding supplies and required reinforcements, oversee construction of Forward Operating Bases when required, distribute supplies amongst squads, and ensure the safe arrival of fresh troops.

Logistics Sergeants, despite their name, are not actually played by members of Sergeant rank. It is just the name of the role. The name is commonly abbreviated to "Logistics" or just "Logi".


The Corpsman is undoubtedly one of the most important roles within a platoon. While any other role can be filled by picking up the relevant gear for it, replacing a Corpsman is not so simple. A Corpsman is the only member of a platoon capable of providing advanced and complete medical treatment, and is also capable of treating wounds more effectively than non-medical personnel. A solid understanding of Medical knowledge is paramount to a Corpsman's success.

As such, it is important that Corpsmen survive for a platoon to remain combat effective. They should take a backseat in combat and avoid treating wounded under fire whenever possible. Casualties should be moved out of danger and transported to the Corpsman’s position in most circumstances.

Up to two Corpsman can be deployed as part of the Platoon's Medical team.

At least one Corpsman is required in every operation.

Defense Engineer

The Defense Engineer is a role that specializes in construction of fortification, placing of mines, and various other deployables that allow the Platoon to hold on to a position. The Defense Engineer can be helped by other roles, expediting construction, however, the construction cannot be initiated or completed without them. Only one Defense Engineer may be deployed by the Platoon.

Vehicle Mechanic

The Vehicle Mechanic is responsible for the repair and rearming of any vehicle assets in use by Platoon. Carrying a Toolkit, the Vehicle Mechanic is the only individual capable of fully repairing a vehicle in the field. Only one MEchanic may be deployed by the Platoon.

At least one Vehicle Mechanic is required when armored assets are in operation.
