Wow? I guess this is different to the way we do it in oz.One of the First things I was taught was: Fire missions 'Are sent not offered'
. As they are fire orders. And you listen to and obey orders...
Brinkt's Example I have become quite familiar with .With some notable differences, here we would direct the call for fire directly to a fire unit we are authorised to fire usually our own battery.Cutting out the need for a message to observer.We only direct a call for fire to the the RCP (FDC equiv) . When requesting Fire from units that are not our own(our doctrine is changing though to become more like the US).
Although I have to confess I envy the US military and its use of callsigns (along with its awesome capabilities and abundance of resources but that goes with out saying). In oz we use trendy callsigns like 31 or 14 or the super trendy Alpha-34-Bravo....
Regarding Callsigns are they standardised or??
