Australian Staff Sergeant rank abolished?

On an official Australian gov't site, it is said about Staff Sergeants: "This rank is currently being phased out of the Australian Army."

Anyone who knows anything more about it? /Luke

Luke

Correct no more promotions to SSGT so with natural attrition and promotion to WO2 the rank will fade away

this started happening about 2008/2009

It is now only being a Rank within the Cadet Ranks of the Australian Army Cadets - Cadet Staff Sergent (CDTSSGT)

Thanks trbaldwin: Do you know the reasoning behind the phase out?
