    Best Base/Training Area for Tanks/Combined Arms

    You mean like the Reg F RSSO who went on a ride along with a policeman buddy and used the car's CPIC to stalk a woman he was interested in? Or the Adjt bully who lasted for too long, probably because he 'had something' on the CO? Or the MWO who forced Class A soldiers to help him move house...

    Best Base/Training Area for Tanks/Combined Arms

About 10-20% should have...
