Colin P said:Funny Germany overan Europe with tankers trained in Plywood tanks. What they need to do is boil down the key skillsets each position needs and teach that. have a couple of training vehicles and crews, that travel to the different Reserve units and run short courses. Each member gets a little book they can check off those core competences on. One vehicle can train drivers while the other focus on gunnery, bring along electronic aids to assist. Choose your training teams well and you could get a lot out of it. You can do the same for artillery, medical, sigs, supply, engineer, MP's
On that note; you do not need vehicles to teach Tactics, OPs, Voice Procedure, Comms equipment, Theory of MG shooting, SOPs, etc.
Even the Regular Force Armour units do not have all pers qualified to drive every vehicle, gun every gun, nor CC every vehicle.
Yes there is a ever growing delta between Reserve and Regular Force Armour, but like every other Cbt Arm, the Reserves teach the "Basics".
