Our Chain of Command is based on the British Army's format. We do offer positions to people who have proven they have leadership abilities and know the elements that we require people to know as part of our unit. However, leadership positions are limited within the unit so please don't join with the expectation of going up the ranks quickly. Below are a list of the ranks that the 16AA currently use within their unit structure.




Recruits are troopers-to-be. In the actual army it would mean doing push-ups and pull-ups till you faint, here it means that you need to fit in. Basically you have to gain some knowledge on how we operate during our Phase 1 Training, which will give you the foundation to build on once you've been assigned to your Section. Recruits have only one responsibility: To get themselves out of Phase 1 as quickly as possible!

The majority of the 16 Air Assault Brigade are privates - they're the building block of the unit; Privates have no combat responsibilities beyond knowing what they're doing when in game. Once you've completed your Phase 1 training, this is where you'll find yourself. If you're assigned to one of our Air Assault Infantry Sections, your next goal will be to perfect what you've learned. Once you've proven to your Section Leaders that you know your various drills and can engage properly in a firefight with the rest of your Section, you are awarded your Infantry Dagger. On the other hand, if you are assigned to Flight, you will need to learn the processes and procedures our Pilots go through before earning your Half Wings.

Pilot Officer

Pilot Officer (Plt Off) is the most junior rank within 1 Flight. Successful applicants into 1 Flight can expect to be promoted to the rank of Pilot Officer upon being selected as trainee pilots. The primary target for all Pilot Officers is the acquisition of their Full Flight Wings. Until they have completed basic and advanced flight training they are not eligible to be in command of an aircraft without supervision. Once they have completed training and have been awarded their Full Wings, they are then fully fledged pilots and can accept invisibility taskings from the Flight Lieutenant and Flight Officer respectively.

Pilot Officer (Plt Off) is the equivalent of Private (Pte) in an infantry regiment.
