    Helicopter Pilot and Crew

    The role of a Helicopter Pilot within a squad is crucial for providing air mobility, fire support, and logistical assistance to ground forces. The roles and responsibilities of a Helicopter Pilot within a squad include:

    • Air Mobility: The primary role of the Helicopter Pilot is to provide air mobility to the squad, transporting personnel and equipment to and from the battlefield quickly and efficiently. They conduct troop insertions, extractions, and resupply missions to support squad operations.
    • Tactical Insertions and Extractions: The Helicopter Pilot performs tactical insertions and extractions, landing and extracting squad members in designated landing zones (LZs) under various conditions, including hostile environments. They coordinate with ground forces to ensure safe and timely pickup and drop-off of personnel.
    • Casualty Evacuation (CASEVAC): In the event of casualties, the Helicopter Pilot may be tasked with conducting casualty evacuation (CASEVAC) missions, transporting injured personnel to medical facilities for treatment. They coordinate with ground units and medical personnel to prioritise and evacuate casualties safely and efficiently.
    • Fire Support: Helicopter Pilots can provide fire support to ground forces by conducting aerial reconnaissance, spotting enemy positions, and engaging targets with onboard weapons systems such as machine guns, rockets, or guided missiles. They coordinate fire support missions with ground units to suppress enemy positions and provide close air support (CAS).
    • Reconnaissance and Surveillance: Helicopter Pilots perform reconnaissance and surveillance missions to gather intelligence, monitor enemy movements, and assess the battlefield situation. They provide real-time information to ground forces to assist in decision-making and planning.
    • Logistical Support: Helicopter Pilots may be responsible for transporting equipment, supplies, and reinforcements to support ground operations. They conduct logistical resupply missions to deliver ammunition, food, water, and other essential supplies to forward operating bases (FOBs) and squad positions.
    • Communication and Coordination: Helicopter Pilots maintain communication with ground units, air traffic control, and higher headquarters to coordinate missions, request support, and report mission status. They ensure effective communication channels are established and maintained throughout the mission.
    • Navigation and Piloting Skills: Helicopter Pilots must possess excellent navigation and piloting skills to operate aircraft safely in various weather conditions and terrains. They navigate using maps, GPS systems, and visual landmarks to reach designated objectives and landing zones accurately.

    Vehicle Crewman

    The role of a Vehicle Crewman within a squad is essential for operating and maintaining armoured vehicles, providing fire support, and conducting reconnaissance and mobility operations. The roles and responsibilities of a Vehicle Crewman within a squad include:

    • Vehicle Operation: The primary role of the Vehicle Crewman is to operate armoured vehicles assigned to the squad, such as tanks, armoured personnel carriers (APCs), infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs), or armoured reconnaissance vehicles. They drive, navigate, and manoeuvre the vehicle to support squad operations.
    • Fire Support: Vehicle Crewmen provide direct fire support to ground forces by engaging enemy positions, vehicles, and personnel using the vehicle's onboard weapons systems. They operate main guns, machine guns, and other mounted weapons to suppress enemy fire and destroy enemy targets effectively.
    • Crew Coordination: Vehicle Crewmen work as a team to coordinate vehicle operations effectively. They communicate with other crew members to ensure smooth coordination of tasks such as driving, gunnery, and navigation, maximising the vehicle's combat capabilities.
    • Reconnaissance and Surveillance: Vehicle Crewmen conduct reconnaissance and surveillance missions to gather intelligence, scout enemy positions, and assess the battlefield situation. They use the vehicle's sensors, optics, and communication systems to observe and report enemy movements to ground forces.
    • Mobility Support: Vehicle Crewmen provide mobility support to ground forces by transporting personnel, equipment, and supplies using armoured vehicles. They conduct troop insertions, extractions, and logistical resupply missions to support squad operations and maintain mobility on the battlefield.
    • Maintenance and Repair: Vehicle Crewmen are responsible for maintaining and repairing armoured vehicles to ensure they remain operational throughout the mission. They conduct routine maintenance checks, perform repairs on damaged components, and troubleshoot mechanical issues to keep the vehicle in working condition.
    • Crew Protection: Vehicle Crewmen are responsible for crew protection and survivability during combat operations. They employ defensive tactics, such as using terrain and cover to shield the vehicle from enemy fire, and operate countermeasures systems to defend against threats such as anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) and improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
    • Communication and Coordination: Vehicle Crewmen maintain communication with squad members, vehicle commanders, and higher headquarters to coordinate vehicle operations, request fire support, and report mission status. They ensure effective communication channels are established and maintained throughout the mission.

    Artillery Crew

    The role of an Artillery Crewman within a squad is essential for operating and maintaining artillery systems, providing indirect fire support, and conducting fire direction and targeting tasks. The roles and responsibilities of an Artillery Crewman within a squad include:

    • Artillery Operation: The primary role of the Artillery Crewman is to operate artillery systems assigned to the squad, such as towed howitzers, self-propelled artillery vehicles, or rocket artillery platforms. They load, aim, and fire artillery rounds to provide indirect fire support to friendly forces.
    • Fire Direction and Targeting: Artillery Crewmen conduct fire direction and targeting tasks to accurately engage enemy positions and targets. They calculate firing solutions, adjust artillery fire for elevation, range, and deflection, and communicate fire missions to artillery units to achieve desired effects on target.
    • Ammunition Handling: Artillery Crewmen handle and manage artillery ammunition to support fire missions effectively. They load ammunition into artillery systems, maintain stockpiles of ammunition, and coordinate resupply operations to ensure continuous fire support to ground forces.
    • Fire Support Coordination: Artillery Crewmen coordinate fire support missions with ground units, forward observers, and fire support teams to provide timely and accurate artillery fire support. They communicate with observers to confirm target locations, adjust fire missions, and deliver effective suppressive fire and precision strikes.
    • Target Acquisition: Artillery Crewmen assist in target acquisition and identification by monitoring intelligence reports, aerial reconnaissance, and ground observation to identify enemy positions, concentrations, and targets of opportunity for artillery engagement.
    • Fire Mission Execution: Artillery Crewmen execute fire missions in accordance with established procedures and guidelines. They ensure safety protocols are followed, verify firing data, and monitor firing operations to deliver accurate and effective artillery fire on target.
    • Maintenance and Repair: Artillery Crewmen are responsible for maintaining and repairing artillery systems to ensure they remain operational throughout the mission. They conduct routine maintenance checks, perform repairs on equipment and components, and troubleshoot technical issues to keep the artillery systems in working condition.
