Light Cavalry Crewman

Royal Armoured Corps


Fight from our most agile fighting vehicle

"Fast and light, the Jackal 2 is incredibly useful in combat – and you could be at the wheel. As a Light Cavalry Crewman, you’ll drive and fire this combat vehicle, as part of a three-strong team."

As a Light Cavalry Crewman you'll be part of a crew of soldiers operating the Jackal all-terrain vehicle. After three months of basic training you'll have further training at the Armoured Centre, Bovington. If you can’t drive yet, we’ll teach you. You’ll get your car and HGV (Cat B and C) driving licences and go on to learn how to drive and maintain the Jackal and fire its weapons. Then you'll join the unit you're selected into and start playing a part in regimental life.
