Height requirements for INT CORPs roles

Hi everyone,

Are there any height restrictions for any of the INT CORPs roles? If so, what are they?

If there are no official requirements then are there INT CORPs roles that lend themselves well to shorter soldiers?

P.s. Apologies if this is a repeated topic; I did search beforehand but couldn't find anything similar.

Did you look through all of this?

As far as I know, the rules simply state "No hobbits". The Director is offended by hairy toes.

The employment of diminutive men as intelligence assets on and off the battlefield is not new. Ephialtes of Trachis spied for the Persians and betrayed his homeland as portrayed in the film 300 Spartans.

In this digitised era many surveillance tasks are carried out using technical devices in place of the reconnaissance soldier recording and reporting his observations. Missing from the technical observation is the added value of perception the man on the ground can add to the report. To that end men are still deployed on surveillance duties, the smaller individual has a unique role to play in this field. As examples the smaller frame can be concealed under floorboards, in wall cavities, chimney voids, wardrobes, behind mirrors, wheelie bins, 45 gallon drums, in small ornamental bushes, down drains, stitched into a car seat – the list is not exhaustive.

Much is heard in the media of drones and their use as surveillance tools, these devices however are limited because of the missing added value a human can bring to the observations.

RAE with input from A&AEE and RARDE have developed the chest mounted manned quadcopter (CM2Q), it is being issued to the RA, SF, Int Corps and RAF Regt. The CM2Q will be flown by an operator on the ground leaving the diminutive airborne surveillance/reconnaissance operator (DASRO) to use a selection of observation aids – binoculars, night vision goggles, thermal imagers and classified MASINT devices. The DASRO will report his observations back to his HQ and will add informed comment.

This new Int Corps specialist qualification of DASRO (Int Corps) will attract, observation pay, special duties pay, para pay (only payable if parachute is deployed in an emergency) and the usual array of miscellaneous claims and allowances for missing meals and working for over 5 hours.

On completion of your basic Int Corps training you can apply for selection to be trained as a DASRO (Int Corps).

More details can be obtained from Col Alfie, Flying Squirrels Squadron, Whitehall, SW1A 2HB.

You'll be fine...
 
Haha great responses. @The_Snail I searched for "height" in that link you sent and a few more results came up - many thanks.
Seems like the only condition is being over 148cm for the army in general so it seems all will be well.....
If anyone knows anything specific to INT CORPs roles (regarding height restrictions) I'd love to hear about it.
 
A certain CRSM was definitely of diminutive stature and it did him no harm.
 
Alternatively in the Green Slime you need to be of sufficient height and stature to be able to deliver that well aimed dagger between the shoulder blades of the person in front of you

As long as there is at least one person taller than you you will never get picked as right marker...

Otherwise they are just a pain in the ARRSE.
