      • If you do not feel capable in the role, seek out guidance from other permission holders in the Server and Discord, and utilize the Training Server to practice with the equipment available. Several community resources are available in: Resources
    • Viper is the eyes and ears of the Platoon on the ground, they must be played with the interests of the rest of the Platoon in mind.
