thanks

A bit of hinde sight. Aim as high as you can reme or engineers. get a trade. Have you concidered Navy or Air force. As cav at war you are cannon foder for yanks. But shooting things with a 120mm cannon is a crack...

Its not tanks mate , any thick fecker can work on tanks . Its CVR(T)
you need some brains to do that job .
If you think that big boys toys is all about follow my leader lad you have never had the chance to site in the right handseat yet. When you get a little more experience we'll have a chat about it - but for now I'm off back to my bathchair.

Cheers elovabloke , Demo SQN Warminster 98/99 before RTR . I know all about the importance of the OMC switch mate . In all honesty Tanks are
less mentally demanding than CVR(T) .I know because i have done both .
And in a few months i get yet another 30secs from the army for my BFT
so i have plenty of expperience to call upon .

Congrates on BFT extension. My age puts me in CVR(W) - things that started with S. But Big boys toys will always be in my dreams as I'm pushed around in my beloved bathchair.

Last ditch switch so you could run your BV off the batts . Under the
radios between the Commander and Loader , should be lock wired .

Glad to see priority's are in order. BFG is a bit of a gunnery wag and may feel it had other uses.

Very handy for keeping the BV going if the genny has failed.

Fcuk the radios and the big long thing that goes bang.

For a high life, get into Pay Services or anywhere where you can get formal training on real computers. RAPC used to use IBM mainframes, so when I completed my four year time-bar, I was able to get a real job in the Civvy Street Lancers and now have a job for life with a multinational IT megacorporation.

For a good life, though, go CVR(T), marra.
