Just wondering if any of you gunner types can help me out. I am currently an FAC in a none RA unit. I have been shafted career/promotion wise so I was looking into to a tranfer to the RA because I have been told FAC will be a dedicated career stream.I have have a chat with MCM and the chap there said ''yes you can be an FAC until your a WO2.It all sounded too good to be true.I enquired a little further with an RA regiment I have been on exercise recently,and they said ''nope you will have to be an OP ACK first'' I dont want to stab myself in the back and put my papers in to transfer.then to find out I have to do the whole ack gunner thing.I am a little long in the tooth to be starting again.If I do put my papers in I will be burning a massive bridge with my old unit.Have any of my learned RA fellow posters got any information on this. Its a massive step for me ,so before I commit myself to it I want to make sure I have the real info and not some ''recruiting bollax''that MCM tend to put out(promising the world etc ) I thank you in advance.I know the RA can be a little more ''shiney'' than most corps however it would be worth it If I can carry on as a FAC until I leave at the end of my 22. Cheers in advance Edit due to my error.
