  • Unnoficial Fireteam Operations - Leadership Class

    What - An introduction to leading Fireteam sized elements including instruction in regards to Movement, Organisation, employment of arms, operating with your squad and Battlefield tactics. The course will also touch briefly on Radio SOP relevant to Squad Net and navigational skills.

    Why - A lot of people would like to lead but just don't know the first thing about it or don't have the confidence to step up. This introduction to the Fireteam Leader is aimed to remedy this issue and prepare you to not only succeed in leading your fireteam, but to have fun doing so.

    Requirements - I may introduce Team viewer remote desktop use for discussion of Tactics so that everyone see's the same map and situational makeup. Suggest a pen and paper also for jotting down any notes you may wish to take. Please note on TG it is highly recommended to have a mic in order to lead, In my opinion it is essential to have one for Fireteam leading. Therefore I suggest if you are serious about the class that you invest in one, it will make your life a lot easier and a lot more fun when you get into live play.

    Lesson Plan

    I expect this will likely take 2 lessons for a complete rundown of all you need to know, however 1 should be sufficient to go in and learn the rest the ol' fashioned way.

    Lessons will be constructed of equal parts theory and practice. I will however labour on the fact that this will be theory intensive and practice will be laced with interrogative bursts of theory and discussion. My previous classes have been in depth and detailed - this will be no different.

    When

    I've been bogged down by RL of late, so I plan to run this class for it's first night on Friday the 1st of October at 2300 GMT / 1800 EST.

    I will attempt to also run the first night the day after, Saturday the 2nd of October at 2000 GMT / 1500 EST if there is a demand for it.

    Slotting up

    Due to the intensive nature of teaching to lead I expect to require to be able to spend time individually with each participant, therefore each night will have a limited slots arrangement, a total of 4.

    So with that...

    Slots 01/10/10

    1 - Unkl
    2 - Open
    3 - Open
    4 - Open


    Slots 02/10/10

    1 - |TG-18th|Nikolauska
    2 - Cutter
    3 - Open
    4 - Open


    Free agents / reserves

    Lorelei - Free, either night to fill slots

    CorpDuty - Reserve

    How to sign up

    Please note you may not sign up for both nights, It is heavily suggested to near requirement that you are familiar with what a fireteam is and the basics of gameplay.

    As this is unnoficial, slots will be first come first served with no queue skips for SMs or Pathfinders/Spartans. If you sign up but cannot make, please notify me by way of PM no later than 12 hours previous to class start.

    If you fail to show on time you will be allowed a short grace period to show up, however should class be untowardly delayed your slot will be offered first come first serve present at the time. You will not be able to JIP later into this class if you do not show up in reasonable time.

    If things go wrong, RL dawns with it's ugly face and you can't attend unexpectedly however, just let me know via PM and we can sort out another night, no worries.

                Hi guys,

                Sorry - bad news. Due to work related events I won't be able to run the class on the above mentioned dates and will need to postpone until further notice.

                I apologise sincerely for any issue caused and promise to re-arrange and run as soon as I am able.

                        One please. I'm not sure that I'm a competent rifleman yet, but I'll do my best not to get in the way.
