Difference between Intelligence in the Army, Airforce, Navy.

#1
Howdy,
I know I'm going to get a slap on the wrist for a stupid question, but, I was looking at becoming a linguist in the military and I've been looking at the Army and the Airforce. Officially I have had trouble finding information about the Intelligence Linguist for the Army (this forum has been an invaluable source of data), while for the Airforce I have several pages from the AFCO. Could someone cure me of this naivety ? I know that there is going to be a similarity and difference between Intelligence Analyst Voice And Intelligence Linguist, but to what extent are the roles different/similar. Thanks for your time.

You failed at the first hurdle.



Army = Military

RAF = The militant wing of British Airways

Ok, this is what is known as an Oxymoron, 'Armed Forces Intellegence Services'
The army ones are not known as green slime for nothing.

I believe it was Aldous Huxley who pointed out that the Encyclopaedia Britannica contained three entries for intelligence:

- Intelligence: Human
- Intelligence: Animal
- Intelligence: Military

Don't even bother looking into a career as an Int An (V). That trade will die on its arrse in the next 2-3 years, as they have all been briefed in recent months. A number of the younger more agile RAF linguists have already jumped ship. Some are transferring to join the Intelligence Corps and a few were selected to re-trade to Int An (Any). The remainder of the lazy fat bastards are just going to kick back and wait to die.

As for RNCT linguists, they are just cnuts.

well "Intelligence Analyst Voice" is an anagram of "canoeing in testicle valley"...

whereas "Intelligence Linguist" is an anagram of "it's elite clunge lining"

hope this helps in your decision making :wink:

I wish I'd had advice of that high standard when I joined up.

You and I both Rebel - and I wish we had the foresight to buy the previous month's Puzzler Magazine before we went to Loughborough with Tony Cheddar for the potential darksider assessments - like another member of our Squad who thankfully provided us with the answers !! How many did we lose to the Analists anyway ?

Only a few were willing to accept the proposition, "we will tell you about the job once you've agreed to take it".

But as I recall in the NAAFI when we got back to Ashford, we all reckoned it was boring and told the instructors that we would much prefer to train as Op Int & Sy (so we said !). I think we lost about 7, including an ex-Bleep (Alan T) and an ex-Apprentice (Gaz L), not including those who chose a life in D Squad or fell asleep at the wheel of a Land Rover and injured his driving instructor. However we gained two, albeit for a short time (Pete B and Alan F - the latter who later went on to become Corps RSM)

That's what they said to me in Ashford, after I'd agreed to to ask the ould da to promise not to blow up any more police stations, his teenage occupation.

I was in, and then it was downhill all the way for the next thirty-one years...I ended up as a civilian, and you really can't get any lower than that.
