    the AUG looks even worse on parade than the SA80/l85a1/2. I know a minor point for a military rifle.

    You'll find a lot of the JTAC guys from No.4 SQN, end up jumping ship & joining the Commando's.

    Whats the current entry stream for JTACs? Are they taking ex-Arty JTACS or only RAAFies?

    Not to sure, i can only say what my Adgie mates have told me about it. As far as i know JTACs have to be Commando qualified, so as long as you pass & meet all requirements i dont see why they wouldnt take anybody. I believe 4 Sqn role is to support SF operations.

    They can come through the Artillery stream. You have to have done all your courses and be highly recommended, as the courses are hugely expensive to run and have a high fail rate.
