Not correct, a TACP's make up is dependant on the TO&E of the nation that organizes it. In Norway we operate with a 4-6 man TACP team.

A JTAC, on the other hand, is a term used for an individual. The same goes for FAC.

Edit: I see now that the Air Force has an AFSC for TACP journeyman or craftsman. But, my point stands, the initial description of TACP is correct.

You are correct, I apologize as I was working under a close-minded stictly American point of view. Crazy that non English speaking countries have the exact same literal translation though.
