zgan province have
taken another step toward independent
operations after elements successfully
conducted a full mission profile (FMP)
in Tarin Kot last month.
The Special Response Team (SRT)
of the Provincial Response Company --
Uruzgan (PRC-U) currently being men-
tored by the SOTG has demonstrated its
ability to plan and conduct independent
missions in recent training modules, cul-
minating in the FMP.
Senior mentor WO2 S said activities
such as FMPs were an excellent indicator
of the recent progress of the PRC-U.
"The FMP tests their ability to go
through all of the elements which are
involved in planning a mission," he said.
"Aspects of their missions include giv-
ing orders, tactical searching, assaulting a
target, clearing a target, security of peo-
ple inside a compound and evidence and
"The PRC-U is going to have to be
able to undertake all of these elements
by themselves with no outside help when
transition occurs so it's vital they are able
to do them now."
The SRT is a platoon-sized element of
the PRC-U which is able to be deployed
during a provincial crisis.
A platoon rotates through SOTG men-
toring on a regular basis to ensure all
members of the PRC-U are trained to the
WO2 S said the level of improvement
"The PRC-U is at a level where all
its platoons are, at the tactical level, able
to conduct all of those skills, which is
a huge achievement given where they
started," he said.
"There has been a marked improve-
ment in the time I have been here and it's
been the case with every SOTG rotation."
WO2 S said now all platoons of the
PRC-U were at an acceptable standard,
the focus of training would expand.
"The focus now will be on developing
the skills needed to run a headquarters
element and also to train instructors," he
"That will mean they have their own
instructors and commanders at company
headquarters level, which will allow them
to plan and conduct missions completely
"We are giving them an enduring
capability for when transition occurs."
