ROE in Afghanistan

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Are there 2 different sets of ROE, 1 for us & 1 for the septics?
    I saw a report on tv where a septic sniper took out a guy alledgedly an unarmed taliban spotter, yet I have seen other reports from our guys & they couldn't take anyone out as he wasn't showing no sign of carrying a weapon yet knew he was a taliban spotter

    I would advise that we should not be discussing actual ROE on the internet.

    Seconded - ROE for each nation are classified and discussing them could provide assistance to people we'd rather not help.
  4. The main difference is that the Yanks are permitted to say 'get some' and make whooping noises as they fire. The Brits are permitted to say 'good show' and 'I say, cracking shot my man'.
  5. Most ISAF nations ROE is different. So yes.
  6. The 'Spotter' failed then?
  7. As you would expect, in most operations, countries hold national vetos over what ROE their forces operate under. It doesn't make coalition operations any easier, but it does mean that other countries can't tell you who and who not to shoot.

  8. It also changes subtley op to op.

    For instance Sond Chara's ROE was different in ways to those used day to day.

    Dickers is what they are known as. That's not a breach of OPSEC.
