Warfare specialist vs engineering technician (Weapon Engineering)

Hi all

Moving back to the UK after growing up in France to join the Royal-Navy but can make up my mind on witch trade to join.
So i have a couple of questions if someone with some experience can answer.
-Which role spends the most time at sea (don't want to join the navy only to spend 90% of my time on land in England)
-Which role is generally considered better.
-Which are the wait times like (i see Warfare specialist is a high priority role so does that mean it will be quicker to get in ?)
-Which role is better if i'm going to do a full navy career?

Two things @Dan reese . For reasons of personal security(PERSEC) if you're using your real name it may be best to adopt a user name that doesn't make you vulnerable to the wrong kind of hackers.
Second, sorry to be a grammar nazi but witch spelt that way is a toothless old hag whizzing around on a broomstick casting spells.

WE obviously better trans skills, both will see there fare share of sea time. Think what you want don't just jump into the shortest entry branch, if you want that submariner Chef is pretty quick
