Personal Role Radio

Personal Role Radio ([[PRR]) is a small transmitter-receiver that allows infantry soldiers to communicate over short distances - even through thick cover or the walls of buildings - without shouting, hand signals or relaying messages. PRR enables section commanders to react quickly,aggressively and efficiently to rapidly changing situations including contact with the enemy - greatly increasing the effectiveness of infantry fire teams. It also supplies every soldier in an infantry platoon an anonymous, disembodied voice with which he can whisper in the ear of his comrades at inopertune times. PRR is issued to every member of an eight-strong infantry section, and will be available to other troops in due course.

They however lack the use of being able to call upon Para's, but then again they couldn't find their own arseholes with two hands, let alone a bunch of monkeys!
