Specialty Lines

The vast majority of RAM enlisted personnel follow the main line, but there are three specialty lines that indicate special training.

Staff Line

The Staff line is for personnel trained to handle paperwork, particularly letters and communications. This is considered special training to help reduce the chance of miscommunications and errors between officers, particularly during battles.

The Staff Line is identified by a circle underneath the chevrons.

Technical Line

The Technical Line is for personnel trained to handle equipment, from major weapons and engines to radios and generators. As such equipment is rare, such technicians are trained specifically for their particular equipment.

The Technical Line is identified by a T underneath the chevrons.

Medical Line

The Medical Line is for personnel trained to help tend to wounded personnel. The RAM devotes a significant amount of resources and personnel to their medical line, and it is the second largest of the four lines.

The Medical Line is denoted by a cross underneath the chevrons.

*The word Technical is often shortened to ‘Tech’
