Hey. I`ve been reading these boards for a while so thought I`d sign up. I`m a civvy ( apologies), never got any further than the ACF due to failing the medical for the regs due to dodgy hearing. Anyway, here`s the question. we`re all aware how overstretched and underfunded the forces currently are. Just supposing the forces got a huge but not unlimitless cash injection. What should the priorites be ? Navy- actually having a couple of ships left to patrol the ocean. RAF ? more heavy lift capability and helicopters ? Army ? Increase the numbers, more equipment, better equipment ? should the money go instead on better pay and conditions for those serving thus retaining more of those already trained ? or should it be invested in training ( Parachute Regiment actually parachuting for example). I know it`s an over simplified question but anyone care to share their thoughts ?
