The Portable Radio Communication PRC-117(F) Multiband Manpack Radio is a man-portable, tactical software-defined combat-net radio covering the 30-512MHz frequency range.

The radio is used by RAF Regiment Forward Air Controllers (FACs) for communications (data, UHF and TacSat) with Close Air Support aircraft, support helicopters and battle space management agencies.

The PRC-152Multiband Handheld Radio (Harris Falcon III) is a portable, compact, tactical software-defined combat-net radio. The PRC-152 is primarily utilised by RAF Regiment FACs attached to a patrol due to the reduced battery requirement and weight.

The radio can be used to communicate by voice and data via UHF and TacSat. Both radios are essential to FACs to co-ordinate complex airspace whilst enabling timely and accurate engagement of the enemy with a multitude of weapons systems.
