PECOC?

#1
havent heard or seen anything for a while, wondered if anybody had any info on whether its still to go ahead?

jus to let you know im planning on joining up in the near future and my decision would be a lot more definite if pecoc was going ahead, as ive heard bad things about some of the kit you guys get issued.

Don't believe all you read in the papers! I walked round a display of kit for soldiers on ops recently and was very surprised at the quality available. And I'm glad that my budget isn't paying for the black bag of kit!

If you want to join, and you have the ability, get on with it. By the time you are trained, the kit will be even better. And, even if it isn't any better, how on earth will you be able to tell the difference?

Get yer arrse down to the ACIO!

i know kit has improved massively and i know the papers always make things out to be a lot worse than they are, plus im 90% sure i wanna join up, i just got to get enough money for laser eye surgery(i know you have to wait a year) it would turn a 90% into a 99% if i knew the government was prepared to put money into the best kit, as if i did join id be risking my life.

LOL

Im afraid that as a squaddie you will be pissed on by the government at every opportunity.

That said, there are people i know who would have not given up their army years for anything.

yeah i see where your comin from, im studying british history and we definately have a habit of not supplying our soldiers with the right kit
eg the crimean war

bu seriously ive heard that a lot about the army( the best years of your life thing) and thats one of the reasons i want to join, another is the decision not to waste my life doing a job id hate sitting behind a desk, i dont plan on staying in the army longer than 6 years but i got college 2 think about first

If you are basing your decision to join on PECOC then may I suggest you think about another career? Not because it wont be implemented but the fact that it will not make the job a whole lot safer.

You don't turn into The Terminator with a bit of Gucci kit.

Its the fact that we used to give our soldiers the best training out there that keeps you alive, good kit just makes you more efficient.

Its your trg that keeps you and your muckas alive

There is a whole thread on it. A couple of things for you:

- Don't believe everything you hear about military kit.
- If you are going to college, you are years off joining - not soon. Things change.
- Why are you looking at laser eye treatment? Do you know the restrictions within the Army for it?
- If you think some tweaked armour and new clothing is a stopper for you, think harder.

yes i know they prefer u to have lasek, and that you have to wait a year before being considered for entry,

and i wanted to join the army sinc i was 13, im 17 now and still do, im not joining up cos of pecoc jus wanna know if its stilll going ahead,
wen i said earlier about being 90% sure that was to when i will join, after college, or later on?

Im surprised noone's jumped down his throat about his punctuation and use of "u" instead of you.

re laser eye surgery before doing anything talk to recruiting theres issues either and may or may not affect what jobs roles you wanna do.
plenty of people wear glasses in the army

UORs are being used every week to get better kit into the frontline, there are a lot of good bits of kit hitting theatre all the time and there is a lot of money being spent at the moment with new vehicles coming in over the next few months, new kit being brought in for protection and some of the 'gucci' stuff, or as i like to call it, items that are better than what is available currently.

is laser eye surgery an issue for the infantry?

from what ive read about it, it shouldnt be too much of an issue just a time one, with the twelve month wait to make sure there are no complications
