Armoured infantry?

Double bluff, I like it.
Ah but if I wasn't in it and wanted to give the impression I was, I might also state that I wouldn't say I wasn't in it.
Innit.

I'll be honest, I didn't look for it, but if there isn't, there'll be a mutiny amongst the great unwashed.

There used to be 3 main infantry roles:

Armoured Inf - Utilises 432.

Mech Inf - Utilises Bulldog, Mastiff

Light Role - utilises helibedford and shanks’ pony.

Has this changed?
airborne or airmobile inf surely?

They are just light role. Air Assault is the term you seek.
not sure assault is the term I'd use. nor light considering they gave me a chain saw and a milan tube to carry on and off it.

charging into the jaws of certain death was not part of my job description with 24 AMB I was a battlefield portable manually operated air delivered digging unit.

If there is any such a thing as easy soldiering in the infantry, it is mechanised infantry.
...
Has that changed at all over the years?! :)
I do have fun giving members of my old Regiment a bit of stick for being "Mechanized Ranger Infantry" when I visit.
Best enjoyed by replacing "Airborne" with "Mechanized" when singing the old cadence calls.

They all sound like something out of Starship Troopers.
