Documentaries based on Vehicle Technicians?
« on: January 02, 2016, 20:13:25 »
Not sure if this is posted in the wrong section, so forgive me if it is.

I want to know if anyone knows of any Vehicle Technician related documentaries in the Canadian Forces? I've seen one called "Combat School" which was aired on the Discovery Channel, but that mostly shows Infantry. Any help finding something would be awesome. Thanks in advance

Combat Camera will likely have stills and video of Modern Canadian stuff, but likely focused on recovery, filming a guy changing brakepads does not grab people's attention to much. There some great US army training films out there on Youtube and also British Pathe for the historical stuff.

Not much there of Vehicle Technicians. I found no film, and only a few shop photos. No recovery stuff, and most of the pics were not very recent.

BBC/MOD did a good series of driver training in the British Army, don't know if they did anything on vehicle techs.

Mike Rowe did an episode on Dirty Jobs with an American maintenance unit doing vehicle recovery.

It's hard to win an argument against a smart person, it's damned near impossible against a stupid person.

There is no God, and life is just a myth.

Let's Go CAPS!
