3. The concept of operation for Special Forces and Engineers is to deploy the manpacks with selected teams
with net control at the forward operation bases of both the Engineers and Special Forces groups. The concept of
operation for Rangers is for the deployment of manpacks at the company headquarters/combat patrol bases with
net control at the ranger battalion headquarters. (See Figures 4-2 and 4-3.) The system can be used with the
AN/PRC-70, AN/PRC-77, single channel ground and airborne radio systems (SINCGARS), and the AN/VRC-
12 series radio sets for retransmission capabilities.
