Team Structures

Basic CTB Infantry Section



  • Section Leader – in command (Secco)
  • Attached support unit (examples: RTO, Medic)



  • Team leader
  • Rifleman
  • Automatic Rifleman (LSW)
  • Assistant  Rifleman



  • Team leader – 2IC
  • Rifleman
  • MMG Gunner (GSW)
  • Assistant GSW Rifleman


Or, alternatively, we do operate with 8 man teams as shown below:


   Fire Team A

  • Team leader – Secco
  • RTO
  • Rifleman (Mission Specific Specialist Role)
  • Rifleman (Mission Specific Specialist Role)


   Fire Team B

  • Team leader – 2IC
  • Medic
  • MG / LMG / AR
  • Assistant MG / LMG / AR


With this said, team loadouts and structure can change from mission to mission depending on the scenario, however this is the general framework we operate with.



The load out of each of these elements depends on the mission at hand and is at the discretion of the Secco.


Roles of a basic section

Section Leader

The SL is the father of the group; He issues the orders for the section to enact, and only concerns himself with the objectives of the section/platoon, and how to accomplish them.

  • Think of the Section as a family, the SL is the father, and the TL is the mother. Only go to the Secco with information about the current objective, or sections tactical situation. All other issues or queries, consult your 2IC


The medic is there to keep the squad fighting fit.

His priorities are (in order):

  1. Healing downed soldiers.
  2. Healing wounded soldiers.
  3. Assisting the support team.

Team Leader/2IC

The TL is responsible for effecting the Section Leaders orders, and maintaining the Sections well being. Think of him as the mother of the group, and go to him with questions/requirements.

  • For a team to function properly, they must listen to and follow the directions of their Team Leader, and he must ensure everyone is conducting their role accordingly


Automatic Rifleman / Machine Gunner

The AR is the squads main base of fire for suppressing the enemy. His objective is not always to kill, but to primarily keep the enemy from moving (‘fixing‘ a position).

  • It must be understood he is wielding a support weapon, not an assault rifle.



The rifleman is an all-round member, he assists where he is needed and par-takes in assaults.

  • The sub roles of a rifleman vary and will usually be handed out as needed by the Team Leader. This includes, but is not limited to: LDFSW (66mm rocket), ammo bearer, scout etc.



The grenadier is a support member for an assault team, he provides direct fire explosive ordinance via his 203.

  • Generally this role will require extra training before you are allocated this position.
