OUR RANK STRUCTURE
We aim to keep our play style both relaxed and enjoyable, as a result there is the need for a chain of command in order for things to run smoothly, in keeping with our relaxed play style we do not see the need to call anyone with a higher rank than yours sir or see any need for there to be a mandatory salute upon seeing someone of greater rank, our rank structure is simply a tool to run the unit in an efficient yet enjoyable way by giving people in need someone to reach out to and also giving new members something to look up to. It should be mentioned that Arma Milsims loosely bases rank structure and tactics on a real-life Infantry unit of the British Armed Forces, 5th Battalion The Rifles.
