Well hello out there mon fellow "Tankers" .........  Hope too meet as many as possible one day out there in WOT ???  (hopefully on the same side ;) )

  I served in UK RAC 84-96

REGT was 5RIDG ( 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards) nowadays known as RDG ( Royal Dragoon Guards)

 

I worked on most vehicles within REGT lines ,,,    spent 6 years odd on Chieftain Gunner/Driver/loader, whilst in the SQN  I also learn t to work on Ferret mk 2/8, Fv432 mk2,Landrover FFR 110 mk1-4

After my time in armoured Sqn I moved over to MT (rest of my career within MT , bad move on my part !!) where upon I learn t to work on , Bedford trucks 4tn ,8tn,16 tn ,also learn t to work on JCB410, Volvo 404, DAF Drops, Cept trailer, UBRE, plus other Kit I cant even remember now lol , During my time in Regt I also played around with CVRT ( tho no official course done for  that vehicle ,, heehee  ;)  also had a cabbie in Chall1  again tho ( unfortunately ) couldnt get conversion course for Challenger ( that peed me off a bit must say , would love to have had the chance of doing at least one exercise in a challenger too compare against Chieftain ( even though I Know Chall' and Chief'y cant be compared ( lmao )  Challenger series is THE BEST NATO has !!!!  ))

 

I bin playing Wot since Beta days though I wouldn't like  too say I'm a god or anything like that at this game I DO however play with a "TEAM" Spirit in mind ,even though most of the time I end up being on my own on one of the flanks due to 2/3 of the team doing a "Lemming attack ..........ffs"  ....      My name is Phil

Lol +1 for the biccie box driver. I also had a stint on a 432 adapted for the ZB298 radar (Assault troop, Armoured Recce Regt). Trust me, the 430 series are not tanks, they are tracked taxi's.

Hallo Tank commanders, Ex and friends !

 

I´m maybe a special guy because I was trainend, gunner, commander and platoon leader of GE AAD Tank GEPARD B2L. 10 years training and live firing between 1983 and 1992.

All the time service on 10. FlaRgt 10, SIGMARINGEN. Now I´m Signal officier, what a mess. :confused:

 

I hope we will have some nice experiences together.
