Dismounted Role in Afghan

Discussion in 'RAC' started by siz_87, Nov 18, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just a quick question, how does the dismounted role work in Afghanistan? Are patrols etc conducted as a troop or do they revert to a platoon size force?
  2. Google. Failing that discuss SOP's down at the local mosque
  3. Section and multiple size usually.
  4. An RAC troop is pretty much a multiple anyway. We re orbatted to Pl strength in each troop, then split down to multiples for the tour. Very good for the RAC to get the opportunity to carry out this role IMHO.
  5. I'm interested in how this is working. The RDG were no great shakes when they had a crack at it
  6. SCOTS DG did a good job, despite certain elements of their parent CF trying to make us pretty unwelcome! QRH have taken over at CF rather than SU level and I suspect they will do a cracking job. The RDG being poor at the task does not surprise me that much to be quite honest.
