Lesson number one (you can have the benefit of the doubt cos yer only young): Septics use the term Recon in their adulterated version of the well-known fundamental dichotomy that is US English.

In English, the correct term is Recce. But, like I said, I'll make allowances in this case. ;o)

WRT the answer to your question. Recce. Simple as.

It's called Pitmatic, Bonny Lad.

Leave my servo scrote out of it.

Mind he might have trouble understanding me croak. I attended my home/away football match of the season on Monday when me team travelled 300 miles to play and I travelled 3 miles to see them. And now we're gonna win the league. And me throat hurts. But being sat smug in an office surrounded by hundreds of miserable locals is worth the sore throat from singing me heart out for the Lads.

Most armoured regiments have MBT squadrons and a Recce troop apart from the the pure recce regiments. If you join an armoured regiment you will for sure serve on both vehicles at some point. Find out what regiment recruits from your area & that will help you in your final decision. Whatever you go for you will find that all armoured regiments are multi role these days and are called upon to do many jobs that are far removed from being on panzers.

Ron Hill jogging bottoms on with white stilleto's, whacking f*ck out of 4 kids while smerking a tab and bollocking a passing German.

( i appologise if i have described anyones wife here in BAOR in the '80's )

Get with it VTT! Most armoured regiments in addition to thier Recce Troop, now proudly own a Medium Armour squadron as well, equipped with Scimitar. Best of both worlds albeit they are not used in the recce role!

So Grinner what was the difference between an elephant and an army wife (circa 1980)?

You'd never see an elephant wearing 'Ron Hills' in the NAAFI!!! :D

Thanks for the update on what we have. But always bear in mind when replying to a question or teaching someone who know's nothing about about panzers. And that is to keep the answer simple so that they will understand it. So the lad wants to serve on a big panzer or a little panzer, so if he joins our lot, he's bound to get to do time on both & a few other types no doubt :D

TBF the original poster asked whether it was better to work in recce or tanks, not which regiment would satisfy him and yet another thread devolves into a recruiting fight between regiments.

Not intended to do that, just answering a question which could have be done by those who work in the ACIO's. Have not named my old regiment, which has no problems recruiting BTW :D
