DIE training requirements

#1
Surely the most unfortunate acronym in NATO...

I have a copy of the DIE training programme; clear and obvious focus on operational requirements and Mission Specific Training.

I've not been able to get a clear answer on an obvious question - is the DIE package mandatory for eg. the CQMS / G7 side?

TIA

Our trg program for the next 12 months needed to be laminated for all the touching myself I did over it.
Might have been wasted juices there.
It's all on the program, but from what I heard last night we have none of the kit and can't seem to find anyone to give us it either.

"We might be able to beg, borrow or steal a couple of rusty UGLs from somewhere but things like the Combat Shotgun are very unlikely at the moment"

It's just a wait out with fingers crossed, I suppose.

You may get access to them as part of the theatre specific equipment training packages if your unit is undertaking MST. If it isn't, don't hold your breath!

This is all UOR kit, and the scalings are simply not there for every TA unit to get access to them on a regular basis for routine training. They will get access once they are at the required stages of preparation for deployment.

I remain fully optimistic our glorious leaders will find the equipment and sh!t loads ammunition! It's on the Training plan so it must be gen! Don't you DARE piss on my chips glass back :D


@Duke - As far as i'm aware because we're providing manpower to H14 and H15 (or was it 15 and 16?!) that's how we were loaning the kit for 5 weekends this training year.
