I presume by now that most people have had a read of May's Crafty mag. So what is the plan? We all know that the battalion 411 thing didn't work; especially the plan to send guys to units on ISTs. Now it looks as if they're having another go, but giving it a different name. As for the pooling of metalsmiths and VMs at battalions, is it really a good idea? Even if they are released for ISTs, are there any 1st line units out there who will actually request one? Will those OCs / ASMs not think of it as a failing of their own management to have to request one? What happens with the technicians currently in Electronics platoons? According to the mag, GPATE will go to Off-Platform Repair (OPR) companies. How will this work? Where will they be based? The article seemed very vague to me!!!
