Warrant Officer

Warrant officers are technical specialists of the 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment. Respected for their technical knowledge and proficiency, Warrant Officers keep the 508th in fighting shape and provide mobility and fire support in combat. Generally, these are highly skilled and trained soldiers that possess a unique skill set.  In the 508th, Warrant Officers will generally be pilots, crewmen, or out-of-game technical specialists, however, exceptions could be made for other specialists, at command discretion. Warrant Officers advance by way of technical proficiency and knowledge rather than by leadership abilities. Warrant Officers are technicians, not leaders of men.
