Increased range and lethality for less weight will kill off 7.62mm guns in the fire support/ mg section / mg plt role. I am not going into the argument about a Battalions manning however the REME manning is open to question. I further agree that 28 is a good number: four six-strong sections and a four-strong Pl HQ has sufficient flexibility, lethality and survivability (it can absorb casualties, something current AI platoons struggle to do). How about a Corps of Infantry ? 1st (United Kingdom) Division. Army Strength: 108,800 (including personnel in training) Outline Army Structure: Formations 1 x Corps Headquarters (ARRC) 1 x Divisional HQ in Germany 1 x Divisional HQ in UK 5 x Non-deployable divisional type HQ in UK 8 x Deployable Brigade HQ (excluding 3 Commando Brigade) 10 x Regional Brigade HQ 1 x Northern Ireland Brigade HQ Major Units: Battalion HQ will usually be comprised of 6 officers + 10 other ranks. Army Ranks For the most part, British ranks are very similar to their American counterparts, which is not surprising considering American ranks and military culture was based upon the British. A platoon of 1 + 35 divides neatly into four sections of 9 soldiers, allowing 7 dismounts per section or your magic number of 28 dismounts total per section. Captain; Old Sweats; 255 posts; Location: Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex, England; Interests: History, Family History, Gardening, Palaeontology, Archaeology, Theatre, Films, … Members of Lee Co'y (Rob, PVT Grenadier Tim, and PVT Light Infantry Matt) were fans of the 10th Regiment as early as 2001, when we drove to Lexington at dawn on Patriot's Day to see the Battle at Lexington Green. Catering Platoon So it looks as if the developments for the vehicle are at a pretty advanced stage, making a cancellation of the vehicle and its replacement by the Ajax IFV variant unlikely. With the 1 + 35 structure, platoons can change their configurations with relative ease. And yes, this is my ideal platoon properly-resourced as I see it based on recent – indeed, current – experience. Is heating/air con being installed? 1 x Fire Support Sect: SC, two-man GPMG team, two-man CG/SPIKE SR/C90 anti-tank team and three-man 60mm mortar team. confronting an adversary such as the Russians in eastern Europe would require heavy and medium armour with the ability to mount a mobile defence via mobility and counter mobility along with long range fires etc what would the light brigade bring to this party? Such a capability is definitely still needed and there is a strong case to re-instate the 51 mm exactly as it was. The basic building block of military capability is the infantry section. Does it belong to WW1 and before ? Did your article mention or show pictures of the benches being kept or are they being replaced by seats? Another question I have concerns the mention in one of UK Land Power’s tweets (I do not use Twitter) that the BAE Rheinmetall Joint Venture could lead to the AS90 155mm self-propelled howitzer being upgraded to Braveheart standard. One suggestion might be to convert the light-role battalion’s GPMG SF Pl into a MANPADS Pl? This is in the interest of reducing the standing commitment to one Guards battalion instead of two. That will make a massive difference. By embedding these assets at the battalion and brigade levels these organisations get used to working autonomously and are supported by more CSG as each level moves up. This would see infantry platoons switch from two calibres (5.56 mm and 7.62 mm) to a single one (6.8 mm) for rifles, machine guns and DMRs. This would fit the MoD whole fleet management. 6.5 grendel or creedmore) for DMR type weapons. Getting rid of minimi/ LMG was a mistake based on the assumption that medium to long range contacts will dominate future conflicts. This means that you have moved a battalion of Foot Guards out of LONDIST and back into the deployable force – that’s good, right? Two items that the infantry cannot do without. Public duties are “despised” and “don’t help … Guards recruitment” – really? Eight … A Carl Gustav 84mm in the Coy. Some armies are looking at 40 mm medium velocity grenades to reach-out to 800 metres. British Army’s size and structure The regular British Army is being scaled back as reservists take on a bigger role and its structure is overhauled. A division would consist of 2 Brigades and a CnC org (900) there would be 8 Divisions bringing the deployable combat force to 79.2k with an army HQ (4.5k) and Support division of 22.5k personnel inc. Army reserve backing this all up. It is a genuine concern that the British Army lacks sufficient protected vehicles. Automatic 120mm mortars have small crews for high firepower. Platoons moving around the battlefield in MIVs may additionally get the 30 mm M230LF chain gun (the same light cannon used in the Apache attack helicopter). What it does do is massively hollow out the capability and capacity of the Reserve Infantry for little tangible gain beyond having a structure which is more aesthetically pleasing on an ORBAT chart. Army ranks helps to define the roles and responsibilities of officers and soldiers in the British Army. These are: The Mortar Platoon typically operates 8 or 9 mortars each with a crew of 4 plus a Mortar Fire Controller for each detachment of 2 mortars. 07 – Personnel summary. Are your Pl Comd and Pl Sgt vehicle commanders or are they additional? I don’t mean to bash your idea but I do think that the current system, despite its flaws, is generally fit for purpose. This would inevitable change their way of fighting and therefore hinder them to be an true general purpose infantry. The first rank insignia for the British Army weren’t introduced until 1760 and badges for field officers came about in 1810. An army is a formation consisting of two or more corps. Or what is not getting done in the modular battalion ? Also known as a 4 star General, this is the most senior rank in the British Army, and you will find that people at this rank include the Chief of Defence Staff and the Chief of the General Staff. British Army Infantry Battalions are a hodgepodge of different unit sizes and structures. If you look only at the bataillon here one should realize that a bataillon because of its small size is very insufficient for any real infantry combat in terrain which is suited for infantry. 05 – Weapon requirements If the light battalions have the current strength of 560 then 28, with the specialised infantry unchanged at 267, gives a total of 16748. The French and Germans have them at infantry-company level and the Australians have a surveillance section as part of their recce platoons. This will also be sufficient to sustain Mechanised Infantry Battalions and Light Role Protected Mobility Battalions. Their ranks indicate that they hold positions of authority, granted through a commission - a formal document of appointment signed by the monarch. (Source: Richard Rinaldi: Order of Battle of the British Army 1914 and others see links below) Evolution of the British Infantry Battalion (chart) 9 . Perhaps in Armd/Mech it could even be comverted into a 120mm Mortar Pl, complementing the 81mm which can struggle in the faster-moving and dispersed Armd battle? With this in mind, the objective of this discussion is to consider what a universal battalion size ought to be. In a pinch, sure, but routinely just five or six. It would be no problem to fit 9 soldiers in a Warrior IFV, Boxer MIV or Bushmaster PMV. This adds-up to 2 officers +14 other ranks. This is will mean better effect of weapons and better for load distribution. The Specialised infantry battalions should be a separate discussion because of their different role and very different strength. Intermediate ( think 300 blk or 7.62 AK) type calibres optimised for under 300m for carbines and/ or section belt feds. This is because Reserves are not expected or asked to deploy more than once per five-year period. China’s Political Institutions and Leaders in Charts Congressional Research Service Summary This report provides a snapshot of China’s leading political institutions and current leaders in the form of nine organization charts and three tables. To take, and then hold ground is the usual answer. Certainly turret-mounted 30 mm or 40 mm cannons are preferred. STRUCTURE AND ORGANIZATION. Is it time to recognise that for platoons to have sufficient dismounted mass in lower-capacity IFVs we now require five or six vehicles per platoon? The British Army rifle platoon consists of a platoon headquarters and 3 rifle sections. Commissioned Officers are graduates of military academies or of officer training schools. The other support company would have the assault pioneers and the 2-3 anti tank platoons. The chart above represents a typical late-war Union army structure. Ideally infantry should be carried in tracked IFVs or wheeled MIVs, but even light PMVs are preferable to MAN trucks and Land-Rovers that offer no protection. 40mm is under used in general in my opinion. ( Log Out /  Sniper platoons use the .338 L115A3 rifle. This page was last edited on 30 November 2020, at 13:57 (UTC). I think we’re missing a trick with not using the reserve transition from regular service. The way my unit does it is to strip kit down to belt kit and daysack for fighting and then have gonk bag in a canoe bag and a single rocket pouch containing ‘admin’ kit. Interesting thoughts and ideas covering a few topics. In the most recent issue of “Soldier” magazine, there is an item headed “New Warrior stays on track”, in which the proposed “new incarnation” of the vehicle receives quite a lot of praise , including the statement “On paper the platform looks impressive and offers a raft of refinements and upgrades over its long-serving predecessor.” These apparently include not only the new 40mm cannon but also enhanced mechanical underpinnings, beefed-up armour and better comfort for the crews. Your fantasy FF2020 is pretty much identical to mine, but I want three brigades of each type, for 1 in 3 rotation cycle. I really disagree with the LMG being retired. In the British Army OR-1 to OR-2 are junior enlisted, OR-3 to OR-4 are junior NCO's, and OR-5 to OR-9 are SNCO's; Generally speaking, the RN assumes a rank up despite the NATO code remaining the same. Culling BHQs may be good for the budget, but by nowhere near enough to justify trading such depth. Important Operations of the Indian Defense Forces; Indian Army Rank Structure and Promotions; Indian Army Commands. Both 12.7 mm BMGs and 40 mm GMGs are vehicle mounted systems. With a smaller army limited to just 82,000 soldiers, the organisational structure and number of personnel within individual units starts to become very important. Light Role battalions had 8-soldier sections. However number of boots might make the difference for protected mobility (motorized) inf. It may indeed prove a good idea if explored and developed further but I don’t understand what problem you seek to solve nor what the advantages are: it will do nothing for quality of training, Reserve professionalism and competency, morale and retention or, crucially, deployability. The British Army has 32 regular infantry battalions, but six different battalion types. Secondly, top-slicing the Army Reserve and a Regular-Reserve integrated ORBAT: I struggle to see what the problem is you seek to solve and what the advantages are of integrated Reserve companies compared to the current system. Beckett (eds. With each Javelin vehicle requiring a driver and commander, t. As noted above, there is no reason why other weapon types and combinations could not also be used. However, there is no escaping from the fact that a 40 mm grenade packs much less HE than a 51 mm mortar bomb. Maybe if you feel they have to, actual Infantry roled Guards Battalions could have more establised posts for SNCO’s and junior Officers, who could do rotations with these ceremonial Battalions. – Rotate one Guards Bn posted as public duties resident Bn (another 560 troops under current ORBAT or 690 under UKLP’s Universal ORBAT) Officers Mess Staff The weapons platoon would have the mortar platoon, the anti tank platoon, and an assault gun platoon with some sort of wheeled TD or support gun. The class system is prevalent in the society of the United Kingdom in the 21 st century too. So while I have experience of this, and the food ol Gimpy, I have never carted them around In the field.

Army officer pay is in line with other graduate jobs. Anti-Tank platoons do that but that’s because in the anti-tank variant the left bench is replaced by racks for Javelin LTAs so there really is NO space for personal kit. The social structure of Britain has been highly influenced by the concept of classes. I appreciate, cause I found exactly what I was looking for. The class system is prevalent in the society of the United Kingdom in the 21 st century too. Why did you join? When you constantly need to juggle different group sizes, there’s a risk of not knowing whether you have enough “boots on the ground” to complete allocated tasks. A Logistics Platoon (formerly the Motor Transport Platoon) will be responsible for operating resupply and replenishment trucks. Why some say Warrior can carry seven and why some say less: Not combat troops at all, maybe all wearing a common “foot guards” uniform with the same number of buttons…. Without understanding this jargon, you may struggle to interpret the documents you find. I thought of this after reading your article on assault guns. Technical Quartermaster’s Department With that in mind I’d suggest four sections of six, so that everyone off a given platform is on the same page, four sections could also divide neatly down the middle with its vehicles to give two patrols of twelve under a platoon sergeant and a platoon leader respectively. Officers are at the top of the hierarchy. Also, Tower Park, Battle Road and parades. 1. There are ways and means around problems though, if I recall correctly when they introduced warrior with its seven seats, they split a section into a four man squad and a three man squad and the warrior became a fire support squad, but there’ll have to be some very creative thinking with twenty four seats unless you shrink your platoon or fund a fifth and sixth vehicle. With each Javelin vehicle requiring a driver and commander, this creates a headcount requirement of 1 officer + 31 other ranks. 40mm MV is would be an excellent addition to the ammo mix in sections bit there will be some work for the SASCs to update Pams and traces so unlikely to happen. Matt joined as a musician in 2009, Tim joined the Light Infantry later that year. Army Pay scales from Armed Forces, British Army Pay Review 2019 - I agree on the close relationship between regs and reserves, having been in a specialist reserve unit, I have seen it work really well. The Artillery Gun Module (AGM) on tracks (Donar) or on Boxer has only 3 crew ? ( Log Out /  Joint Helicopter Command. As I said in a previous comment, IFVs do require all THREE crew to be properly effective. I of course being TA/Army reserve would have any idea how to be a Regular Army medic keep my medical competencies up etc as I do the job five days a week and not spend an inordinate about of time counting tent pegs. I don’t understand why the “commando” (no bipod) version of the 60mm mortar would be less accurate or more difficult to get rounds on target than a 51mm ? As a bonus I thought that a closer relationship with reserves at battalion might serve as a nice middle ground, with regulars perhaps choosing that as way out of the service as well as for reserves finding it a way in. He says at one point that in his Army 2020 organization, “The armoured brigade would have Ajax Recce, Chally, Ajax IFV (bye bye Warrior! Therefore, this exercise will commence by considering how platoons and rifle sections should be organised and how this determines overall rifle company size and structure. There is a Commander Field Army and a personnel and UK operations command, Home Com… Military Rank and Insignia – Officer Ranks. Apr 16, 2019 - This Pin was discovered by White Wolf.

The Assault Pioneer Platoon is usually comprised of 19 other ranks. I’m not sure that he can wave farewell to Warrior so easily. Platoons divided into multiples may opt for a different weapons mix, e.g. You wouldn’t task the Mortar No4 to act as CPO and lay and prep fuses and fire and correct all on his own as a matter of routine, would you? But war is not about comfort, I know. To solve this problem, and to give flexibility through spare seats (needed for terps, picking up dismounts whose wagons are elsewhere and any atts and dets), to build on your idea would it be an idea to give the Pl Sgt and Pl Comd their own wagon each? They are commanded by a general or a field marshal. It allows Marine Expeditionary Units (MEUs) to be generated quickly. Also in such an modular overall force you can also much more easily deploy and re-role then only tank units or only infantry units and this would the increase the strategical mobility and the overall flexibility of the UK forces imo very much. The question of multi-shot 6 round revolver type 40mm grenade launchers with MV rounds versus the UGL is a good one.

SAAB has produced a lightweight version of the Carl Gustav 84 mm recoilless anti-tank weapon. Radio operators, medics and anti-tank weapon operators would carry assault rifles with shorter barrels for reduced weight and increased convenience. This allows each platoon to have a total of four GPMGs and 4 DMRs. Other ranks will include the RSM, Drill Sergeant, Chief Clerk, plus 7 additional clerks / drivers. You might be interested to know that my battalion reflects this by rarely having more than five dismounts as a matter of routine! The UK bought the 60 mm Hirtenburger mortar as a UOR weapon, but, in standard form, it proved to be too heavy and needed too much ammunition to get on target. The thing about 36 is that it divides neatly a number of ways 4 x 9, 3 x 12, 3 x 10 + 6, 4 x 8 +4. It usually consists of 1 officer + 27 other ranks. The elements in the organizational chart for the U.S. Army span from the individual soldier all the way to the largest building block commonly used, the Corps. If we have multi role divisions, then does this not theoritically make a third of your div redundant for any given operation? The LMG is a good belt-fed weapon up to 400m, perfect for D FT. Leave the general as a pl asset for depth targets and to join the suppressing section to give it big licks when needed. The Army is a large organization, made up of many different branches and groups. Indeed, I can see Warrior being used for the next ten, fifteen, even twenty years. US Military Ranks and Units Modern US Military Ranks The table shows current ranks in the US military service branches, but they can serve as a fair guide throughout the twentieth century. British Army Structure in WW1 Remembered Today: British Army Structure in WW1. It applies to all proponent agencies responsible for military occupa-tional structure and classification. If they are vehicle commanders of two of the four section vehicles then when they dismount their vehicle gunner will have double workload. So that the tanks can seperate from the infantry completly and then act as an force for their own. The French for example in 1808 had infantry regiments of 4 field battalions and 1 depot battalion. In armoured or mechanised formations the vehicle crew would be drawn mostly from Fire Support Section. Heavy armour battalion Though I strongly disagree with replacing the Woodentops, it is always good to see non-Guards have a turn. The size of this sub-unit must be sufficient to support the tracked vehicles of Armoured Infantry battalions, so a Detachment structure of 1 officer + 37 other ranks is proposed. The US Army includes 3 brigade types: the Infantry Brigade Combat Team (IBCT), Stryker Brigade Combat Team (SBCT), and Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT). Moving from the micro to the macro, the organization of the army overall is a little wacky, given the number of infantry battalions you’d expect to see simple structures equivalent to ten brigade combat teams, but you don’t; I’d say this is a worry not just operationally but because it lends itself to questions and to cuts, the fighting and the support units should explain and justify each others existence. Weapons like the 12.7 mm HMG and 40 mm high velocity grenade machine gun are primarily vehicle-mounted systems. We already have two dedicated battalions for public duties and what you’re really asking is could we make do with just one? Also such an all-mech-inf force would hinder the UK forces very much in the primary target to achieve critical mass of infantry in any combat. I think that wider structures, instead of ten BCTs we should look at the French and Australians. The British Army could have suffered from the same difficulties of recruiting sufficient officers as the Prussians, Russians and Austrians but it did not for two reasons. I submit that it’s the job of the regular army to be equipped to fight small wars, and not to rely on civilians for what might prove an unpopular undertaking. They are not man-portable. Exellent article and I just thought I’d add some thoughts. Opportunity for Reservists too? Headquarters Allied Rapid Reaction Corps. When it comes to ground combat, infantry mass matters. You can find specific pay details for each role on rolefinder. The figures given for the number of soldiers carried, number of dismounts etc. General . To clarify, I don’t think we should be finding a person in the turret, I’m saying that’s where they’d have to come from at four vehicles unless one lies on the floor. So to summarize it up: my suggestion would be to create identical infantry bataillons, but without any organic protected mobility. The commissioned ranks are the highest in the military. This option also ensures that each section within a platoon has a dedicated vehicle driver and gunner. DID YOU KNOW? This said i think such an general purpose infantry would make much sense especially for the UK despite the higher costs but: i think also, that one of the main arguments with which the author started is a problem here: He said, that the now universal threat of IEDs leads inevitable to the logical result to equip all infantry units with protected (and therefore expensive, heavy, less mobile etc) mobility. ), probably Boxer SPH.”. The British Army rifle platoon consists of a platoon headquarters and 3 rifle sections. This will lead to higher costs per bataillon and therefore to higher overall costs. This articles argues that it would create a more flexible and potent force as well as making it easier to re-role battalions if a universal, multi-role structure was developed. 16 Air Assault Brigade. A step in the right direction? Unfortunately, the third rifle platoon is not present in peacetime, but is furnished by the Army Reserve should a battalion deploy on operations. Now that the GPMG has been returned to rifle sections, a separate, fourth fire support platoon is no longer needed. Of course, there will always be exceptions, be you Regular or Reserve, but to dismiss them as second-rate soldiers is unfounded and outdated. Unless you seek to change the structure of Reserve TACOS call-up liability then keeping reserve battalions ‘paired’ to regular battalions is a good way of being able to generate an extra company of volunteers.
