Am fairly sure that this will spark some interesting debate. A short while ago a friend of mine posed this question. My immediate answer, being a member of the Corps was yes of course, stinking crab bastards can fook off! Then I started to think about it. Is there anything much different in the basic way we do things compared with the RAF, I am talking very basic terms here. AH generally deploys from base locations now as does the chinook force and as the harrier force used too! The AH can be field deployed again as can the chinook force. The AH force seem to be the plug in the gap left by harrier at the moment (with obvious differences range, etc). The lynx is being used in a smaller scale of Puma. Our refueling capability is similar to TSW but slightly less as we can't build pillow tanks etc. Signallers are no different on paper to any other signallers. I know there are many different ways we do things day to day and on operations but in a broad brush sense could either the RAF become the AAC or the AAC merge into the RAF. Personally I would rather see all rotary wing stuff become the responsibility of the AAC (which I am sure has been said before LOL)! Am expecting a fair amount of incoming but am intrigued to see what others think?
