These days it's 18 years but you can put 12 months notice in after roughly 4 years, there are different rules during basic training.

Until fairly recently it was 22 years, before that ( when I joined) it was 3, 6, 9, 12 or 22.
I did 22 and then got asked to do another 10, which I did. At the end of that I was asked to do another 5 but I declined ;)

The trick was to sign on for 9 initially. When you signed on again you used to get an additional 2 weeks leave, so sign on for 12, then later sign on for 22! Happy days!

I signed for 9 initially but later on went straight to 22 so I could get LSAP and buy a house, signed on for 22 being part of the criteria to get the loan.
