The REME,made up of tradesmen that are all soldiers first. Provide essential maintenance at both first and second line. Our role is to keep the equipment in the users hands.

Vehicle Mechanics break down between A Mech (Tracked vehicles) and B Mech (everything else). Recovery Mechanics are the army answer to the AA on the battlefield. Technical storeman these are Quartermaster staff and responsible for obtaining our tools and special test equipment. Armourers fix from pistols through to tanks, without them no one would be able to shoot. Aircraft Technicians basically a glorified mechanic who fixes aircraft. Avionics Technician this is the god that fixes all the electronics to keep the aircraft flying and fighting. Artillery Technician new in the REME, army answer to undermanning, change the name, bodge it andhopefully fixes the problem. Armoured Technician, again new in the REME same as the Artillery Tech but works on tanks and warriors to keep them in the fight. Guided weapons technician, new name for the old radar techs, hopefully will recruit more due to this name change.

Last but no means least the Regimental Specialist responsible for keeping all the tradesman in touch with their military skills and training.
