Callsigns and Radio Communications
All Vehicle Callsigns are VICTOR, with the following breakdown:
- VICTOR11 – Section Commander’s vehicle
- VICTOR12 – Section SGT/2IC’s vehicle
- VICTOR13 – Section member
These callsigns apply to both Tank and LAV and the callsigns are continued on to VICTOR2 and so-on if required.
The VICTOR callsign can function much like a squad with the Victor 11 acting as SQL and the 12 and 13 callsigns working as fireteams.
Under normal conditions, the two fire-teams will be in within 200m of each other and V11 will be responsible for reporting to HQ over the command net. Should the V11 callsign’s vehicle be destroyed or commander be killed, V12 takes over the platoon.
Communications between members of the same crew will be via the local chat function.
Communications between members of the same VICTOR callsign will be with the personal short-range radio.
INTER-TROOP AND COMMAND-NET COMMUNICATIONS
Communications between different VICTOR callsigns will occur over the command net.
