This Special Skill designates the trusted non-commissioned officer of the Lieutenant, who can operate under their direct orders.


NCO and Combat Groups

To be able to use this Special Skill it is not compulsory that the owner and the Lieutenant belong to the same Combat Group.

NCO Game Example:

In his Active Turn, Raktorak Wadek, designated as Team Leader of a Fireteam: Core of Suryats, declares the use of the Special Lieutenant Order via his NCO Special Skill. As this Special Skill allows this Order to be considered as a Regular Order, using it doesn't trigger the Fireteam Integrity rules, so the Raktorak remains part of the Fireteam.

Within the command structure of special operations units, the responsible officer usually has a trusted non-commissioned officer who can operate independently under his direct orders. Said NCO is usually a veteran troop of proven ability, which has already operated in previous occasions with that officer. Thanks to a direct tactical link, this troop has a greater freedom of action and is usually responsible for carrying out attack or support actions that imply greater risk or operational responsibility.
