CVHQ RA Artillery Intelligence Operator

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by rebusraver, Feb 18, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Dear all,
    first time post; I'm hoping I may get a sensible answer!

    I'm looking for some info on what an Artillery Intelligence Operator is; I'm assuming it's something to do with TUAV? A Google search has proved useless.

    Secondly, does anyone have an up to date e-mail address for CVHQ RA so I can make an enquiry; the one on the existing website is a tanet domain but I think most places in London will be dii by now.

    Very curious as Artillery Intelligence Operator is open as a Specialist TA trade according to the website.

    I'm sure there will be some Gunners on here that can point me in the right direction!
  2. CVHQ RA
    Royal Artillery Barracks
    SE18 4BB
  3. Ta very much, most helpful.
  4. Just had an e-mail back saying they're no longer recruiting into the RA Specialist pool due to being unable to provide training..... will need to have a rethink...
  5. Locstat ?

    Current nearest TAC ?
  6. Glasgow area. Lots of TAC in area but nothing int related. Already int trained, different service. Looking at options and have already ruled out Int Corps TA in Edinburgh.
    Hence the look at Specialist option. Know a Specialist RLC TA Major, always trying to poach potential new blood!

  7. I'm an old Arty Int Op, but that was reg not at CVHQ. The name has all but died out and is more known by the funky sounding Targeteer, as in Targeting.

    Its not TUAV, but does use data collected from UAV, It was my understanding that to join CVHQ you had to have a trade already, however if you are ex Slime then you will probably to crossover quite well as it is general G2 work but with an Arty "FIND SOMETHING TO KILL " approach rather than morale and drinking habits of the 14th Shock Army
  8. Hi, you will not find out much about Arty Int.I was a Detachment Commander Arty Int. I was a war reserve for 4 Div HQ in case of war.Specialist reserve intelligence up to .......secret. We advised the General Staff on all aspects of Soviet Artillery other weapons and tactics. A little special and quite secret. Just through the gate at Woolwich up a bit on the left.
  9. Glad you kept that secret!!

    Not true. There's a reserve MI Coy based in Glasgow...think it's 51 MI. Two new reserve battalions of MI have been stood up, so some of them are new or not there yet, but they will be looking for people. Get in touch with Chicksands or 5 MI HQ to find out.
