2 Para are more specifically a Mortar and Machine Gun Platoon according to that page.

No it just shows the machine gun and mortar platoons in a live fire something or other.

I'd imagine 3 Para would have machine gun/mortar platoons aswell.

From the small amount I've read they look the same to be quite honest.

why not wait till you get in training?

I think you get sent to whichever one needs men anyway

what about the rifles? My recruiting sergeant told me that there are far more opportunities in The Rifles than there are now in the Paras due to their very limited roll and the fact that there have been no parachute jumps for ages and that the Paras may well dissapear in the near future as there is no need for them anymore.

The Rifles can send you airborne or commando. After I join I am going to try for Commando.
