  The Warrant Officer Ranks: Adding Flexibility to Military Personnel Management
Warrant officers and limited duty officers are drawn most heavily from equipment repair specialties in the enlisted ranks; thus, in comparison with commissioned officers, they tend to be heavily concentrated in engineering and maintenance occupations (see Table 3).
Notably underrepresented in the warrant officer ranks are tactical operations officers--ground, air, and naval arms--except, of course, for the Army's aviators.
The enlisted occupational specialties that contribute disproportionate numbers of personnel to the technician warrant officer ranks are generally in the areas of electrical/mechanical equipment repair, electronic equipment repair, and, except in the Marine Corps, communications and intelligence (see Table 4).
