I searched the forums but couldnt find a specific thread on Ammunition Technical Officers, only Ammunition Technicians. I have several questions, one being when in your career would you do the ATO course? If you volunteer for the course, is it likely that youll get on it? Ive heard that some not so good senior captains use the ATO course as a means of getting promotion to major, is there any truth in that? I think thats it for now on the question front, I gather its quite a specialised role and many serving army officers (including RLC) that Ive spoken to dont seem to know much about the ATO world.
