Your eyes slowly adjust to the gloom but immediately start to sting. Dust and plaster has fallen down from the ceiling, and you taste it in your dry mouth. Slowly the ceiling lights flicker on as the emergency generator starts up, and people begin to pick themselves up... ...Its August 9th. You've just survived the biggest killer of man in history. In 30 minutes, 3.6 billion people have died across the globe. Unknown to you, the population of the UK has quartered, and will continue to drop. You think briefly of your family before being dragged onto your feet by your platoon sergeant... "Come on son, there's work to be done!" Comes the gruff voice from the dark... but not yet... for now we wait... in the dark...

GPMG Gunner (Light Role)
Utalising the General purpose machine gun to its full potential in a section support Role. Your job will be to operate and maintain one of the most devestating weapons in the Infantry Arsenal.

Section Commander
Due to the large influx of recruits, your training staff will pick out potential junior non-commisioned officers for specialist training. You will operate as the commander of your 8 man Rifle Section, using each mans specialist skills and equipment to maximum effeciency.

Usually operating in pairs, well away from the Rifle Section, you will be closest to the enemy, in either a Recce or combat role, killing from a distance, or providing support or information for your mates on the front, you may be alone on the line, but your brothers stand behind you, ready to back you up!

Communcations has always been the key to sucessful military operations. And nowhere is this noticed more than in low level infantry tactics. Using the PRC351 Radio, you will be the link man between the men on the ground, and the support offered behind the lines.

The backbone of any army. The Rifleman's role is to close with and kill the enemy. Using the most modern and effective equipment, or simply charging in with a fixed bayonet, no matter where you are, every infantryman is your brother, your friend, your protector.
