Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi,

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place or just simply a bone thread, but would anyone in the know be able to give me some info about TA ATs? Please PM me if you can help...

    Cheers in advance!
  2. At Ats? Weren't they some sort of big robotic dog full of Storm Troopers that Luke Skywalker had to fly through the legs of?
  3. Yer, TA AT, is a Terrotorial Army Ammunition Technician job, hope this helps or try this link for info.

  4. See if anything in the link below helps.

    RLC TA

    Should be sufficient info there to help.
  6. The RLC Trg Instruction (Vol 3) in the E battlebox gives details of all TA trades. The nearest thing to Ammo Tech for the TA is Ammunition Specialist.
  7. There is (or was) a Specialist TA Sqn. Mostly manned by ex AT/ATO but not exclusively so. Like most Specialist TA they recruit mostly people with required skills and experience.

    Have never heard of a TA AT course, but they might do some training in house.

    Sqn no longer does EOD but does ammunition processing etc. Individuals and groups sometimes support Regular Army on variety of tasks, sometimes EOD if individuals have right skills.

    Phone call to RLC TA at Grantham would probably be a good start point.
  8. No TA AT's ( but Ex Reg AT's serving keep the qualification ) as such, but TA Ammunition Specialist (531 Ammo Tech Sp Sqn RLC(V).see link http://www.army.mod.uk/temp/rlcta_old/trades/ammunition_technician.htm

    edited for mong spelling!
  9. Only four years too late, keep up son.

    Its a National TA unit rather than a Regional TA

    So the rules are different regarding training days etc.

    Best ask...
  11. I can field any questions on 531 if required. PM me for info.
