I did this course with 4/73 a few years ago, instructors came from ILRRP's and they did state that they had DVD's or training material available to loan if required.
If you wanted to make it from scratch nick a load of stuff off the walt websites for russian and nato kit (don't forget to include phot's of uparmoured T55's etc which look nothing like the 1955 Red Army and an awful lot like 1990 Friendly Forces.
focus on types of vehicle that indicate partucular units, e.g. Russian airborne cas wagons and anything else airdroppable. NBC detectors which indicate HQ units etc
Frankly, since so much of this is pointing at a big general war I wonder what half the purpose is these days (except for the yanks so they can tell the difference between CVRT and BMP grrrrrr). Probably you don't want a debate on that though....
Also, don't forget bino's for the class so they can get a feel for looking at projected pictures via bino. Moving DVD stuff is of course harder to find but spices up a presentation.
If you can get hold of the teaching notes offered by engee then that would be gleaming. Also a copy of Jane's. There are 87 on the total list to be an Advanced Instructor, but only 40 on the basic list and 22 on the Intermediate.
I have difficulty between the 2S3 and M109, and still need more work on my RWA. But it's coming. Any recommended way to revise? I'm just going through all the slides randomly and testing myself. If I get it wrong I try to work out how I should have IDed it...
The levels for ITD 5 were: Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and Specialist. The vehicles in these lists, less Basic, depends on what Regt/Corps you're in. ITD 5 is still to be used until the new policy is finalised, on or around 01 April 2007. If anyone needs any help with Recognition get in touch with the All Arms Recognition Cell - mil 94322 5512 - civ 01980 84 5512. The teaching discs available from there only cover the basic list, but it does have a lesson template to prepare lessons from other lists.
Make sure the lists are dated 01 Jan 2004, if not then they're out of date. Have seen a few discs in the last couple of months and most are copies of the one from recognition cell. Some minor differences, mainly a different background and/or a badge in one of the corners.
The lists dated 01 Jan 2004 should be used until 01 Apr 2007, when a new policy and lists should be published.
