You could be a "medic", lightweight loadout more oriented to team mate rescue.

As for CCT, yeah they're more combat oriented but from what I've read (yeah.... I'm a walt/chairsofter) they try to avoid combat instead favouring clandestine operations while providing ATC (Air Traffic Control) services and support to the main insertion/battle force. Their main mission is to be forward pathfinders/rangers and scout out locations ahead of the main battle force and since they're not heavily armed seem to prefer non engagement.

Just go as a CIA Officer! Show up in plain clothes, bullet proof vest, sunglasses, and a sidearm. Demand supplies be given to you as needed and start bossing everyone around even though they have no idea who you even are.

After reading "Not a Good Day To Die" and "Roughneck Nine-One", CCTs and ETACs are just as capable of fighting as other Spec-Ops personnel, but their main role when teamed up with SEAL teams and Special Forces ODAs is to call in airstrikes, and manage the planes and I'd targets. So think extra radios and laser range finder/target designater devices.

Awesome.

Try it at your next game. Show up with just a pistol, and demand a rifle and ammo from your teammates, as well as a radio, water, etc..

I literaly just laughed for like 20 minutes. But yeah, it seams as though a CCT loadout would be more useful. If only I had a way to call in strikes...

What do you mean by clandestine operations? They have been involved in some major battles attached to various SOF units and dropping bombs all over the Afghan mountains and in Iraq, etc As well, mission dependent they've been involved in combat, and some very large battles.

For Airstrikes, keep a guy back at respawn point with a grenade/nerf rocket launcher. When a target is found, call him on a cell phone and talk him into re target...

For he CIA, have your team set up an ambush. When the enemy walks into the killzone, tell your team to hold fire. Use your cell phone to take a picture of the enemy pointman. Then transmit the picture to someone who couldn't make it to the game, and ask them for a positive I'd of the subject, and request confirmation of the subjects status as a legitimate target. Then tell your team to stand down when the guy in town tells you the picture is too fuzzy for a positive ID.

Or before the game send free airsoft gear and weapons to the enemy team and train them.

Then during the game keep complaining how hard it is for your team to beat them

I LIKE IT! Do both, and make sure the guy you try to ID is one of the guys you trained.

Thanks Skeltor for the informational ownage. It seems like the CCT units are more combat capable, and if I had an airsoft Ac130 or F18, Id be golden lol.

Well.... it seems you know a lot more than me. I'm honestly just "one of those military posers/walts/chairsofters" and what I've found I've found using wikipedia.

Also by clandestine operations I meant like clandestine insertion and then directing the main battle force, airstrikes, supply drops, etc. to where it needs to be.

Also, yes they are attached to SOF units. According to wikipedia, (sounds bad I know but this is the internet not like a university research thing) they are routinely attached to Army Rangers, SF, and SEAL teams.

What a coincidence... NBC posted an interview with a PJ in A-stan this morning...
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540...24483#40324483

Looks like Sgt. Settle is wearing Crye BDUs (with the built in knee and elbow pads).

Don't use wiki as a source especially when there's a lot of legit sites and info on the net.

Directing the main battle force? They aren't running the battle and ordering troop movement etc. That's a ground commanders job not CCT. CCTs are enablers and do what they can to support the ground commander in completing his mission. I'm just on my phone right now but when I'm back on my computer I'll post up some websites etc that have info on CCT.

Roger that. I'll back down now. I totally admit I'm an idiot that will believe anything on wikipedia. If it said the number of African Elephants has tripled in the last few months I would totally believe that (if using it for research I would have to verify it through scientific journal articles though).
