Iwould love to know which air force you have the advantageous position in because it is obviously not the Royal one, as the latest and third tranche of redundancies is the first that they have asked for SAC's/JTs in, and then only around 500. And they are introducing the AMM not the OM!!!!!!crabtastic said:If only the crabs' loss in manpower was going to have any effect, they've had it too good for too long and the personnel "losses" are what they've had coming to them. From what I've seen they have far too many people doing nothing - I have little sympathy. The crabs look after their people better but that means they drip like hell when they suffer any form of hardship. From my advantageous spying position as a solitary matelot deep in crab land most of the redundancies are SACs (ABs in real speak)...and I heard a nasty rumour that the RAF are now looking to introduce the OM...
...You know, the best thing to do would be to get rid of base titles and just call them "Royal Military Establishments" or something like that. Then Have the Admin Part of what ever service is in residence like in in HMNB Clyde = the Admin is called HMS Neptune. Therefore you could haveHaving been blessed by being stationed at four RNAS Bases in my career in can safely say my favorite is definitly Deadalus, even if it was only during trade training. Seahawk was a damn good draft when i was single has it has the better social life, even if you take into account some of the crocadilapigs that frequent the Barn or Twighlight Zone, but then again Heron was good for the travelling (was the most central Base until 2004).
Now that we have Cott/Witt i have no problem comutting everday only two draw backs to Cott/Witt is that you have to listen to the crabs manging about the navy all the time and i have to go home to CinCNavHome every night. The crabs don't like us calling Cottesmore a RNAS, but as matelots are now starting to equal the ammount of sidewalkers lets us give it a ships title.
...Youâ€™re forgetting something. The Crabs donâ€™t want to go to sea. If you donâ€™t believe me then check here. It makes sense to me to have the dark blue operating Harrier/JSF purely because it streamlines the support system. And then again you can also look at the history of not just the UK but other countriesBisley said:Instead of arguing bewteen ourselves over who is best and i fly the nicest helicopter/crab converted GR7/9 we should be fighting for our existence. As was pointed out junglies go to army, zoomies to crabs and lynx can be the FAA. Really. One more step to civillianisation. The SAR is already in process of being contracted out. 702/815 use to have alot of civillians (RN sponsored by Serco) working on them. Soon they will all be civillianised and we can all become OM(AET)'s or warfare officer's with minor additional flying duties. Tri service integration doesn't work and can be seen up north now. The only people who seem to think it does are the ones lokking for another gold ring. I am I just being cynical in my old age
Are but that would be too easy I agree with what you say and i have heard so many people ask why move all zoomies upto cott/witt when south dis at yeovilton was geared up for them. Has this move saved money. Doubt it. Has it caused resent between the 2 services. Oh yes 8OKATWEEZIL said:Bisley,
I couldn't agree with you more, and you've only to look at attrition rates within all three services to find that (for britain's "premier" Air service) the RAF Losses are outragously high compared with the FAA who have more valid reasons for losing more aircraft.
But the point i'm trying to make is that they (the Front line guys anyway) are of the mindset that it is not there job to go to sea or live in trenches. In a way I can understand this after all it's not what they sighned up for. and I think it would be better for the crabs if they got out of JFH, Gave the RN their share of the A/C but keep the Support and Training systems Common. Same with JHC.
