So the Marine vs Army infantry thread got me thinking, what are the different Army infantry MOS codes?

0311 - Rifleman
0313 - LAV crewman
0321 - Reconnaissanceman
0331 - Machinegunner
0341 - Mortarman
0351 - Assaultman
0352 - Tow gunner
0369 - Infantry unit leader (Ssgt and above)

ETA: I ask this because I was told that the Army doesn't have a separate MOS for crew served weapons.

11C Mortar
11M Mechanized
11H TOW Gunner

In the Army you have:

11B - catchall infantry to include mech and light

11C - mortars

11A - infantry officer

Then we have additional skill identifiers (ASI) for everything from javeline gunner, to ranger, airborne etc. which are earned through courses and schools.

There havnt been 11M's for 3 years now. About the same time for 11H's.

11e armored recon

What is that?  Like a Cav Scout or a Stryker crewman?

Last of the 11H's

The 11E, 11D etc. were phased out in the 70s and became the 19 series, ie. 19K is tanker and 19D is cav scout.

Whats the difference between a rifleman and assaultman?

The assaultman humps the SMAW and blows shit to hell with it.

A line squad in the average Infantry unit is composed of:

1 x Squad Leader (SSG/E-6)
2 x Team leader (SGT/E-5)
2 x Grenadier (PVT-SPC)
2 x Automatic Rifleman (PVT-SPC)
2 x Rifleman (PVT-SPC)

Sometimes a unit will have the Team Leaders carry the M203 and will have PVT-SPC be the Riflman

An assaulter is a mission specific task, not a duty position. IE the whole squad can be the assault element.

A rifleman uses a rifle and an assaultman uses an assault rifle.

Used to be this way for Army (not sure about now):

11B - basic infantry
11B1P - Airborne Infantry E4 and below
11B2P - Airborne Infantry E5 (not sure if this keeps going up as you get promoted)
11B1V - Airborne Ranger qualified E4 and below
11B2V - Airborne Ranger E5 (not sure if this keeps going up as you get promoted)

I think leg Rangers are Golf instead of Victor, but don't quote me on that.

The B4 ASI is for snipers.
The W7 ASI is for Scuba.

Hope that helps some.

11B is the MOS, then the next number is the skill level, ie. rank
11B10 is PVT-SPC
11B20 is SGT
11B30 is SSG
11B40 is SFC
