Officer is a general title that applies to all members of the clan. There are three classes of officer, among which certain duties and responsibilities are divided.
A non-commanding officer, or noncom, refers to any officer who's rank typically does not permit them any authority over officers, even those of lesser ranks. They are the most common class, and make up the body of individual fireteams in battle. One exception to the rule of them possessing no authority is that if their designated fireteam commander is killed in action, the highest ranking noncom is responsible to assume temporary command (with limited authority) until the unit commander respawns and is reunited with the group.
A commanding officer is an officer who's rank grants em a non-executive authority to directly command officers of lesser rank, particularly in battle. Commanding officers can command fireteams, squads, or entire platoons from the front lines alongside their designated troops.
An executive officer is the most important class of officer, responsible for regularly participating in democratic clan-wide decision-making. They are the ones proposing and passing legislation as well as deciding who to go to war up against. Executives typically serve a commanding role on the front lines as well.
Fireteams = 4 players; Squads = 2 fireteams or 8 players; platoons = 4 squads, 8 fireteams, or 32 players
