Half the Armys kit not working?

Half the kit doesn’t work and the other half has yet to be delivered.

I think this is mischief-making. Much of the reported unavailability will be due to BOWMAN conversions which, MoD announced in '94, would be a lengthy programme because they were not committing funds on preparatory work which would have oiled the wheels. The report may be true in parts, but it's simply policy.

Broken record.

Not only am I getting a little bored of the Torygraph playing the same old broken record, but Rayment hasn't even read/understood what he's writing about.

In the worst cases, those units equipped with the Sturgeon and Salamander version of the combat reconnaissance vehicle, which is used in training in an anti-tank role, had none in working order.
Vehicles in 'training' units appear in column 6. Thus it seems pretty believable that the majority of said vehicles are in "working order."

Tw@t!

Is your pint glass half full or half empty?

Half the army's kit is working - surely an improvement!!

Sturgeon and Salamander - clearly that's BATUS and Warminster, isn't it. So the REME effort is going into the CR2 and WR vehicles I would expect...

REME effort surly that’s being a bit optamistic or are you talking in relative terms.

It's about time it got out, stop penny pinching and pretending that whole fleet mismanagement is working and get the kit back with the troops, where it can be maintained and troops can learn.
