Unit Structure

Structure Overview - SOCOMD ORBAT

SASR Orbat

SASR Information

Every member is initially recruited into the R-Troop and can choose to join the JAC (Joint Air Command) once they are of sufficient rank and have completed the required training. The required training is detailed in the “Training Courses” section of this website, while the Rank Structure and Progression System for each unit can be found in the “Ranks & Insignias” section.

The 6 Squadron (6 SQN) of the Special Air Service Regiment (SASR), represents SOCOMD’s primary body of ground troops. Operationally, 6 SQN is capable of all manner of ground combat with a strong focus on human intelligence gathering and unconventional warfighting. Administratively, 6 SQN houses all the organisational functions of SOCOMD. This includes human resources, and operations planning (i.e. mission making) for all SOCOMD elements, including the Joint Air Command (JAC).

Below you will find a diagram depecting our 2nd commando structure.

Joint Air Command Infomation

The Joint Air Command (JAC) is the umbrella organisation for all air based assets detached to SOCOMD. JAC is fictional in its structure and has been formulated specifically for SOCOMD in order to maintain some realism without making SOCOMD top heavy in terms of overall ranks, whereby both rotary and fixed-wing air support can be housed under one organisation in a ground support manner.

Below you will find a diagram showing the structure of our 171st squadron.

Squadron HQ

Squadron HQ, is the core of the unit. The members who are involved in HQ, keep things running and use their own free time to do so. For administrative purposes, 6 Squadron HQ (6 SQN HQ) represents the highest level of management and leadership in SOCOMD. It governs Operations Groups One and Two which manages human resource and technical matters respectively for all units under SOCOMD. Additionally, SASR training and operations planning is done by Squadron HQ (SQN HQ) itself. During operations, Squadron HQ deploys and manages SASR personnel on the ground whilst coordinating support from other units.

Squadron's HQ's job is to work for the benfit of SOCOMD and its members. HQ holds weekly and monthly meetings to ensure that the community is constantly being looked after.

Below you can find two diagrams which show how HQ works.
