Future shape / role of the Oggies

Discussion in 'Royal Air Force' started by PadMac, Jun 9, 2012.

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. Aside from expansion into fresh territories, what else is up on the option board?

    It seems the Oggie units are being re-roled away from Regiment to more CSS duties.

    Akin to the much discussed permanently attached part timers in regular army batallions, would something similar be afoot for the regular Raf Reg squadrons?
  2. I don't think that is strictly true. The Auggies are doubling in size, so keep much of the 'regiment' role, as well as specialist aeromed, loggy, int and other roles but are bring new squadrons on line, or increasing current squadrons, to encompass a more CSS-orientated role.
    I think it is a good move, it is the HQ formations that are short of staff, particularly with current enduring ops and the likelihood of more ops over the horizon, so staffing HQs with experienced and qualified auggies, seems logical. There I go, using silly words like logical !!
  3. Doesn't really matter, guys.

    31st March 2018 and your're time is up anyway. It will be like Logan's Run.
  4. You are, once more, proving you are a sad, tedious c0ckweasel. I don't remember the last time a fathead from the Sigs had a valid opinion on anything Army, never mind other Service. Did your mother have any children that lived?

  5. Yes, but not me. Alas.

    How tall are you? Because I didn't know they could stack sh1t that high... and I assume the best part of you ran down the crack of your mama's arrse and ended up as a brown stain on the mattress.
  6. No. Really. You think you have an opinion on everything. You crayon over more threads on here than most of the drooling fools. I can only imagine the advances you have personally brought to the field of military communications given your expertise in everything ever written on ARRSE. I used to give you the benefit of the doubt but you have convinced me that you are a waste of rations, a uniform and oxygen. Sacking you would make your corps 20% more effective.
  7. I take it the C doesn't stand for 'Calm'.
  8. Amazingly, I can type retorts to dimwits without getting angry. It does seem that it would take a piece of 4 by 2 to get a message through to you. You appear to be a one man windtalker constantly transmitting in dull.
  9. Now then chaps, back on topic please.
  10. Okay thanks for the reply TM.

    Do you see the Falklands as the next stomping ground for the Apes once Herrick draws down? I know Syria is flavour of the month at the moment but does Aki really need a RFS / regiment element on the ground, even if just to deter the nutters / spooks?
  11. Apart from TG 8, are there plans to expand the Comms/IS side of things? Maybe a TCW reserve or an IT expert pool as per R Sigs LIAG/LICSG?
  12. from what i have seen one sqn is going to be raf police, the rest are suppy and other support trade, not heard of any sigs
