Task Force Operations Command and Control Element (TFOCCE) is the focal point for the synchronisation of Task Force activities within operations. It performs command and control or liaison functions according to mission requirements and as directed by the establishing commander. Its level of authority and responsibility may vary widely. It normally collocates with the command post of the supported force. The TFOCCE can also receive special operations forces operational, intelligence, and target acquisition reports directly from deployed elements and provide them to the supported component. The TFOCCE remains under the operational control of HIGHROLLER.

Task Force Command [HIGHROLLER]
TFC Supports the Task Force by mission planning, supporting, scheduling and conducting training and exercises of assigned forces and providing combat-ready military forces to support Service missions and global requirements. This group is made up of 3 staff TFCO, TFXO, CSM.
The TF commander - is responsible for everything his unit does or fails to do. He cannot delegate this responsibility. The commander is responsible to both his superiors and his subordinates. He increases the effectiveness of the organization by delegating to his subordinates the authority to accomplish their missions, holding subordinates responsible for their actions, and fostering a climate of mutual trust, cooperation, and teamwork. He organizes his force based on the mission of the higher headquarters and a thorough understanding of his mission, enemy, terrain (and weather), troops and support available, time available, and civil considerations (METT-TC).
The Task Force Executive Office (2ic) XO - is the principal assistant to the TF commander. As the second in command, the XO must be ready to assume command immediately if the commander becomes a casualty. The XO transmits the commander's intent for the TF. His two main responsibilities are to direct the efforts of the TF staff and to sustain the TF.
Command Sergeant Major - The CSM is the senior noncommissioned officer (NCO) in the TF. He focuses on soldier welfare and individual training and on how well the TF carries out the commander's decisions and policies. The CSM can act as the commander's representative in supervising aspects vital to an operation, as determined by the commander. For example, he can help control movement through a breach in a critical obstacle or at a river crossing, or he can help coordinate a passage of lines or quarter assembly areas. He also plays a key role in the CSS effort as the CSS troubleshooter for the TF.
In order to maintain a high standard of information security and realism within Reality Gaming, Taskforce HQ has adapted a version of the worldwide classification of government material to label certain types of information and indicate to whom they can be distributed.
The classifications listed below aim to enhance the milsim aspect of RG and maintain secrecy with factors that could affect realism such as ops plans, missions and campaigns.
Our Task Force Organisation Chart
CLASSIFICATION OF INFORMATION
Intelligence on and off the battlefield
Information under the RESTRICTED classification is defined as material which would potentially compromise RG’s operations if made publicly available. This includes specific timings of events, channel and server passwords, the roster and unit SOPs.
CONFIDENTIAL information is defined as material which if released would potentially ruin the realism/fun/surprise of other RG members for in-game events. Examples include drafts of mission briefs, ORBATs for ops and unpublished graphics intended for PR/marketing purposes. It also includes minor to moderate disciplinary procedures towards an RG member.
Information classified as SECRET concerns the operational side of RG. Prior to a mission being undertaken all related information is classified as SECRET This includes mission briefings and related operational intelligence. Minor restructuring, unpublished promotions and organisation-based discussion are all classified as SECRET by default. SOG affairs are typically classified as SECRET unless otherwise specified.
TOP SECRET information is material which would be extremely damaging to RG if leaked, published or otherwise made available to the public. This includes major restructuring, campaign plans and major disciplinary procedures. Information classified as TOP SECRET is usually ‘for your eyes only’ and generally shared only via forum PM or in a passworded Teamspeak channel so as to avoid interception.
Example of Top Secret Seal
Once the need for secrecy has expired information may become 'declassified' and thus available to everyone on request. However, in the interest of security certain details may remain redacted such as names, places and objectives.
Commanders are asked to consult HQ if they have any questions regarding classification.
