Javelin in TA Anti tank platoons

#1
Our platoon converted over to this system last year. However thus far the kit has not been forth coming and its delivery does not seem to be on the horizon.

This is proving to be a pain as the majority of us have not touched the kit since we converted, and we have no way of keeping current on it except borrowing kit for weekends.

Is there anyone else out there who is in similar circumstances?

Discuss.

misterp, any chance of revealing your Loc-stat or cap badge (by pm of course) Our command wants to know if others have the kit & if so why the f**k don't we.

Sounds like the situation for 3PWRR is the same as ours, we borrow the kit from our reg cousins & use the simulators at Warminster....

Anyone out there (TA) that actually has the kit ISSUED to their unit and/or has thier own simulator?

It could be on long-term loan but I wonder if they are breaking the terms of the procurement contract (as I understand it) by doing so. It can only be held at a site that is manned 24/7. Not sure how TAC caretakers fit into this description but I suspect it is stretching the definition a bit if that's what they're relying on.

Dont know only under this impression as a mate of mine works on the reruitment team and was telling me about it in the bar one night, next time i see him i will try to find out a bit more.

The javelin platoon definetly does not have any full time kit at their TAC, take that as guarenteed because I haven't counted it during an arms check.

oh_bug.ger - Perhaps you can PM the name of your contact on the recruit team & I can set him straight.

Hi Bernard, don't worry. It's obvious that they don't have a CLU.
