Position troops for battle (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

deploy

'position troops' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

I can't explain the remainder of the clue.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for deploy that I've seen before include "Spread out and put in position", "Put in position ready for battle", "Distribute strategically", "Spread troops", "Put into use".)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
