Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

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

  1. Hi everyone,I'd due to start my AIR 338 course this year and was wondering if anyone has done it recently and would share their experiences about it. There seems to be a lack of information regarding course structure and a timetable. Can anyone shed some light on what actually happens on the course please.
     
  2. ahoyi did 338 a little while ago (prejoining masu/1710) - its a good course and teaches a lot of good stuff. top perk is you get your green lid at the end of it.
     
  3. AACC is part of the course content obviously.

    Nah, it's for future "arkalas" and "Brown Owls", the lid comes with the rig and toggle.
     
  5. Air 338, formerly known as SMAC course? if i remember correctly the SMAC stood for Super Matelot Army Commando. You get taught advanced "take down" techniques and "snatch" tactics. At the end you can either choose a green lid or maroon lid if you do the Para bolt on weekend.

    I can see Submariners being quite good at the Pongo aquaint for this course, the lack of basic hygiene is a common theme.
     
  7. WB, ours is enforced, theirs is voluntary.
