Have you got what it takes to specialise in infantry tactics, weaponry, field craft, and force protection?

As an RAF Regiment Gunner, you will be responsible for the force protection of RAF air assets; this means the planes, the personnel and the air base itself.

As a Gunner, you’ll receive specialist training in infantry tactics and weapons, from pistols, rifles and light machine guns, to mortars, anti-tank missiles and heavy machine guns. As the RAF Regiment need to operate 24 hours a day in any weather, you’ll become skilled in the use of the latest night-vision aids and other surveillance equipment. Gunners need to be able to drive a variety of vehicles, quad bikes and motorbikes – so if you don’t have a driving licence you’ll earn one in training.

As a Gunner, you could specialise in some of the RAF Regiment’s other roles:

  • Become a paratrooper serving on 2 Squadron RAF Regiment or other parachute-capable units.
  • Serve on the Queen’s Colour Squadron, carrying out ceremonial duties including guarding Buckingham Palace as well as your normal operational role.
  • Become a sniper – an expert in camouflage and marksmanship.
  • Be part of a unit specialising in detecting and protecting against chemical or biological attack.
  • Train as a member of a Forward Air Control team, calling in strike aircraft and helicopters in support of ground troops.
  • Work in support of Special Forces operations.
  • Work as part of a small team to recover downed aircrew or other key personnel.
