Whats the best regiment to join

#1
Going to AFC in septemeber and then on to phase 2 to train to be a tank crewman , i want to be maily using the challenger 2's but would also like to do a sort of infantry side. Im looking at the Kings royal hussars at the minute as it looks a good one, i notice a few regiments are in germany do we no when they are coming back . Im glad ive find a forum on the RAC as im totally confused on where to go after phase 2 . Any replies are welcome

Now you have found it why not look at some of the previouse threads on the subject and then, if you have any questions ask away.

1. Have you any family connections.
2. Are you suitably qualified for RAC - health/education/aptitude?

If you can answer yes to 1 & 2 go for your local Regiment - check with ACIO.

All RAC Regiments are the best. ThatÂ’s why generally they are well recruited so you may wish to consider the fact that you may not get a choice.

Your age has left you at a disadvantage as the BEST panzer regiment was, of course 3 RTR, so you have dipped but you can always pick from the 2nd best, which of course is the rest.

I do believe men in white coats are about to arrive at your door - 3 RTR indeed! Every self-respecting Tankie knows 1 RTR was, and still is, the MAIN regiment :D

The OP comes from Barnsley: his local RAC Regt is LD, but they are Recce.

We all know that wanting to go tanks is the tradition of those who know no better, but that's what he wants, so I guess he is quite right to ask around after Panzer regiments.

just to throw a spanner in the works, u mentioned about germany, in germany there are at present RDG<QRH and the all important SCOTS DG, now as a regiment there are a few things that will help you decide RDG are moving back to uk as is RTR(good riddance) haha, that leaves SCOTS DG and QRH, the infantry thing is a coming act now for every regiment due to tours and stuff so which ever regiment you join you will get the opportunity, have a look at all the regiments and try find who can give YOU what you want dont discount formation recce being rac is being than going on LPC
