  1. Hello,

    Tried searching the forums only could find one topic didnt really give me enough info..

    If anyones apart of these jobs can you give me advice such as;

    Whats the difference?
    Whats the daily role in both jobs?
    Theres no MBT in afgan but there is recci tanks? Would i be a soilder if i was to go MBT on tour?
    Pros and cons with both jobs?
    Will recci be more of a challenge? One of the guys in the office said that you are waiting on recci to give you orders so will there be alot of waiting around in MBT?
    I hear that if you go recci you will never be able to go MBT but if you go MBT then you can use the recci tanks at some point?

    Anything really guys just to help me on my choice, any input would be greatful, cheers
