Recover vehicles from the battlefield

Craftsman Peters “Recovery Mechanics help keep the wheels on the road to get the job done.”

Out on the battlefield, Army vehicles can get damaged, bogged down and overturned. As a Recovery Mechanic, it’s your job to rescue them. You will use specially adapted tanks and trucks to help you do your job, which is why you will learn to drive a number of Army vehicles in training. You need to be quick-thinking and brave for this role – after all, you’ll be moving vehicles in the middle of battle. You will receive world class training throughout your career in order to develop your trade skills and expertise as a recovery mechanic. All the while, you’ll have sports and other activities to keep you busy and good mates around you.
