The Media Operations Group (V) also known as MOG (V), is 'a nationally recruited, specialist Territorial Army unit.'[1] It is engaged in managing media reporting of conflicts involving the British Army and is part of the Ministry of Defence.

The MOG website notes that:

We assist the media so they can broadcast from the battlefield and bring accurate stories to the breakfast table, whether that story is about our troops fighting insurgents or building schools. We train and assist commanders and their troops in how to get their message across most effectively.[2]
