I've recently passed selection and I've been offered all 3 of my job choices with one of them being Recce Tank Crewman. I understand that apart from being trained up to drive, shoot and use the radio on the scimitar, you also get trained in how to maintain and sort of fix the scimitar as-well. In the job description sheet I got from my AFCO it says that I could gain a qualification in Engineering and Maintenance (or something like that) however when my dad did the 16/5 Lancers back in the 80s, he didn't get any qualifications of the sort. Can anyone currently or recently serving in the recce regiments confirm whether or not you get a qualification in engineering and maintenance as this is the role I want to go for and would hopefully get something out of it. Wasn't too sure whether this was the best place to have this thread but since this is where the tankies lurk I thought I may as-well stick it on here for now.
