Pay Rate For Javelin Operator

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by hellmett, Jun 8, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know where I can find out the current payscale for a Javelin Operator?

    I know Javelin Operators get a few extra quid more than a Rifleman in an Infantry Unit but is it gonna buy me a chinese at the end of the month?

  2. JSP 754
  3. Javelin operators don't get any extra pay.
  4. Extra pay? That's news to me!

  5. Apparently so!

    It says on our website:-

    QUOTE: All members of the Anti-Tank platoon are experienced and highly trained soldiers. They must be physically fit, robust and determined. Although their primary roll is anti-tank, they must be capable of exceeding the expectations of the taskings of a rifle company soldier, as well as their primary role. As Specialists, they are paid more than a standard Rifleman.

    I was just wondering how much an AT Specialist actually got?
  6. No mention of it in the 754. Is it a High pay band as opposed to rifleman lower pay band thing perhaps?
  7. That could be it!

    I am just curious!

    My missus is already "having a cow" about me joining the TA.

    She thinks I would make more money if I went part time at KFC.

    (She's probably right!)

    Why are women obsessed with money?
  8. Just asked two friends from my own days as a wire guided lunatic who are now AT spear chuckers. Their reply was "Do we really?" and "Day off, In Bed, **** Off."

    Hope this helps.
  9. 3 Denarii a week and all the Gauls you can sell
  10. You probably move up a "class" (afaik theres 7 classes you can move up as Pte prior to hitting the Lance Jack pay bands) as a Rifleman by passing the Jav Cse which should put your pay up a little.

    But hey, who knows?

    See above link.
  12. Obviously not you.
  13. no extra pay for javelin ops....i have been in the tanks for over 10 years....never heard of it!!!!!
