Recently told we could just about equip and drop a company(+) of Paras maximum, not too sure how much we could fly in as an immediate follow up.The problem with 16AA is the resources to provide initial assault
Look at the varying terms for a 1btn airborne task force with drop shorts n chunkies attached throw in the provosts loggies n medics and hey presto what’s left is the second and third waves
Helps that those handy USAF Ospreys
are assisting with cross nation training ensuring everyone can swing off the same song sheet
Chinnoks n Pumas(it’s eventual successor) n wildcats with a few apaches as skirmishers
PS: Must not forget the infusion of bleeps ensuring comms all round
As we're a defence force, not an army, in all but name now - we are going to have to embrace being a smaller cog in a more multinational structure or we need to halt and reverse cut backs.
