Call em what you what enabling capability, etc... but in terms of trade/(army?) skills they are incapable. In terms of civilian employment they are outdated and near unemployable in today's market. So what has been tried.... In Sigs we've more than halved the number of units but somehow that strengthened the disabling component.... the enabling component also survived but their rules, jobsworths, etc have also managed to become a disabling component (i.e. a short 30 mile journey in a truck .... I'd estimate at costing over £200 in post journey admin). As for 'enabling component' in trade.... their skills are stuck in the 70's (80's if ur luckcy). Their hold on training has decimated the Sgts mess with many modern IT people just giving up in despair at monged the training has become, which reinforces the disabling component.... PSI's turn up speak to the disabling component (normal TA have jobs so tend to be absent Mon-Fri) and think the TA is bunch of low level IT mongs .... and heh presto we've descended back another layer of capability (training objectives has be changed to producing Enhanced Mongs). Next someone will post the storey X Coy/Sqn, a special joint TA/regular unit that in the space of two years has become non-operational on a piece of kit that takes around 3x40mins to teach ?
