Hello everyone!

I just saw this footage of Australian forces in Afghanistan and as you can see by your selfs almost every rifleman in the squad looks like he got a Light AT weapon(Please correct me if it isnt one).

Will the a light AT be included in all ADF rifleman kits?

LATs are single shot and light weight, so often you will have a couple of them around in a squad, In PR, the rifleman's Ammo bag is capable of resupplying a LAT to simulate carrying extra ones and still being a restricted kit.

Australian infantry are mad imbalanced in real life.

Now if only we had a Navy.

I only counted 2...

I think a lot were shots of the same 2 guys.

2 in game squads = 2 real fire teams = 1 real squad = 2 LATs.. Amiright?

Err, not really. The standard Infantry section (or Squad, for you Yanks) consists of 9 men in three groups, Rifle/Assault, Command and Gun. Three per group obviously.

Some battalions change their SOP's to fit the environment, and there is a push to break the 9 man section into 2 fire teams of 4 with a LCPL in charge of each fireteam, and a CPL in charge overall.

as of 2012 all regular forces will begin deploying with enhanced infantry capability organization, regular section will be made up of two "bricks" or 4 man teams in a 40 or 44 man platoon made up of 3 or 4 bricks in the maneuver section and one 12 or 16 man maneuver support section made up of 3 or 4 teams. but all things are based on the deployment situation. so don't take this as ridged fact.

Just like few people in one squad of the Us soldiers having underbarrel granade launchers.

edit: meaning more than one

IACR configuration currently puts the manouever section (8man brick) as being capable but not limited too fielding. 2x EIW-C F88sA3 2xEIW-G F88sA3 2xEIW-EO F88sA3 2x7.62 minimi (AKA maximi) LMG. various HE delivery systems (not including the UGL capability) are included in the deployable assets of the DLIFE Brick, and are deployed in a modular capability dependent on mission profile.
