    Equipment, weapons, vehicles they use.

    Cheers.
     
  2. Training, equipment and roles can be provided by the recruiting office, history and important names can be found on Corps/Regimental websites. Put some effort in if you really are interested.
     
  3. Sorry if I came across like I wasnt putting the effort in, I am using what you mentioned and more. Just wanted some extra/personal/insider input from people, not stuff I can easly google and find - or am I overthinking it.
