Passed rt today thinking I would get a lower score than I did, I had set my mind on joining as warfare spec but the afco tells me I could pretty much choose any job, weapons engineer is the only other that appeals. Can't seem to find much info on what a weapons engineer does day to day any info/personal experiance would be much appreciated, I have trawled the navy website and also this forum, cheers

As a Weapon Engineer you will be responsible for maintaining and fixing cutting edge radars/sonars/missile/gun systems.

As a Warfare Specialist you will be responsible for de-rusting and painting upperdeck fittings and spending at least 8 hours a day looking at a radar/sonar/ew display.

Im fortunate that I dont need to worry about post navy because I have been a painter n decorator for last 10 yrs so have that to fall back on. Im joining the navy for the lifestyle, pension and its always been a dream of mine to join

What do warfare specialists do when not at sea? Is weapons engineering all below deck or is it balanced outdoors/indoors? Dont wanna be stuck indoors the whole time hence my interest in warfare specialist
