The Army General Knowledge Quiz

Subs

Clanker
An idea to get this forum moving a bit more.

The idea is I'll start off with a question. Someone answers, then asks their own question. Seeing as general knowledge of the armed forces is important (after all, you wouldn't take a job with a company if you knew diddly squat about them) then hopefully people will enjoy this, and learn a few things in the process.

I suggest starting of with easy, rather bone questions before moving onto harder stuff. As everyone will be at different stages of revision.

Question 1:

Where is the Commissioning Course conducted, and how many weeks long is it?
 

Dread

Answer:3

Question3: On a scale of 1 - 10, how bone is this thread when compared to reading DINs from 1998-99?

Edit: Ok, a bit mean spirited considering the location of the thread.

Question 3: Number of Javelin missiles carried per infantry platoon (light role)?
 
Answer: 10.

Question: What does the acronym TARDIS stand for?

Corrrrrrrrrrrrect!

Actually got those very words from the CQM. I was a cadet at the time and consequently had to walk around with a Jersey HW with a dinner plate sized hole on the back for 2 years after that one! :oops:
