    I read about at least one that did prefer to carry it himself. But that was on the Recon teams. It was in that 'Secret Commandos' book by Plaster

    Default repley to about team leader radio carrier

    most times when a hatchit team went to help the team leader was on the radio call in in air stikes and tot fire to help to get you out of that place so it was much easyer for the team leader to carrier the radio
    my team leader carried the radio himself so he had a diecrt link to the outside world to get help as need

    out of touble when shtf win a misson goes wrong they had 5-to-6-green beret team members as team leaders and rest were made up of local forces that were loyal to the vietnam gov

    Default Sog

    There is a good book which goes into the studies observation group and hatchet forces in vietnam,it goes into some detail but is an easy read.
    it also covers other covert cia/soe ETC missions around the world from afterww2. "fighting Dirty" by peter harclerode.

    Weren´t Bright Light teams RT´s on week-long ***** alert used for rescue and recovery missions?
    I thaught the ´hatchet´forces were usually platoons and companies that attacked bigger targets (basecamps etc...) as well as operations of a long duration (such as Op Tailwind and major roadblocks).

    You are mixing two different things.
