MLRS FUNCTIONAL COMMAND POSTS
The purpose of this appendix is to provide examples of Functional Command Posts (FCPs) for the MLRS battalion, battery, and platoon. It is a guide for the MLRS battalion commander and his staff, the MLRS battery commander and battery HQ and support personnel, and the MLRS platoon leader and platoon HQ personnel. This appendix is based on objective TOEs 06466L000 and 06467L000. The battalion FCPs in this appendix are for an MLRS battalion deployed under option 1--dual Command Posts. The battery FCPs in this appendix are for an MLRS divisional battery deployed with a split HQ. Each individual unit must adapt these FCPs to its own particular mission and deployment option and to the personnel and equipment authorized in their MTOE. For a discussion of CP functions at the battalion, battery, and platoon levels, see Chapter 4. For a consolidated list of tasks and subtasks by section, see ARTEP 6-525-MTP and ARTEP 6-398-30-MTP.

MLRS PLATOON HEADQUARTERS
The POC is usually positioned near the center of the platoon HQ area. The platoon HQ is not usually split into a CP and a trains element like the MLRS battalion and battery may be, because the platoon HQ is not equipped and manned to do so effectively. The POC is the CP of the platoon HQ.
