If it was a talking one(rather like my Action Man circa 25/12/1970) do you think it would moan and whinge about the cat board, ARTS course, quality of FOAs today ?

I'll get me coat !

Please.....your all mistaken. TacATC man? It is obviously someone from 90SU. With the Donkey D1ck hanging out of his day sack, field phone in hand. :PDT_Xtremez_30:

As a former Tac dude, the guy who made this got in contact with the Unit a few years ago. TT, could be 90SU, but it isn't, it is a Tac Controller!

A very good likeness although, like any toy, you dont get to appreciate the different spirit and mentality that the TAC blokes have. In the nicest way slight mad!

From a man who has spent some time with them in Afghan.......

FOMz, IIRC TacATC were never part of 90SU. When TCW moved to Leeming to become part of 90SU and left them behind, TacATC became part of Herc Force HQ until being adopted by 1ACC last year.

Tac ATC were part of TCW as a seperate unit within it. Today, the unit is Tac ATCU & still based at brize, but is now part of the Hercules Force HQ.
There was no point re-deploying the unit to Leeming or Lyneham, as the Hercules Force will soon be pitching up at BZN - brilliant unit Tac ATC - spent two very happy tours on it!!

p.s. Love the figure! Mine are in deserts, mtp, and temperates!!

when were tac ATC part of twc, i was on the wing from 2000 -2002 and i can assure you Tac ATC where not a unit of ours, we had 2 field squadrons with 4 flights on each and the it squadron / help desk. Tac Atc where always a tactical unit in there own right

Bunch of smallys :PDT_Xtremez_42:

In 1987 TacATC were the third Flight of Field Comm's Sqn, by size, after AMF and UKMF. Led by an ATC as opposed to EngO types they stood out as a bit odd but consisted mostly of TG11s and a couple of TG3s, just like the rest of the Sqn.

They were the first unit on the Wing to get DZ patches, consequently this made them ultra hard, so they got Bergens instead of 58 pattern rucksacks also Arctic hats, this came with a price though as they seemed to spend most of their time being fecked about on Salisbury Plain with a lot of really macho maroon machine types.

In 1988 there was a Sqn reorg. TacATC came under the umbrella of the newly formed Airhead Comm's Flight which stole most of the TG3s from all 3 flights. AMF and UKMF were reduced in numbers and left to concentrate chiefly on the Harrier force and Support Heli's respectively.

Get some in. :PDT_Xtremez_30:

I was posted to ACF at the end of 1988. I got jiffed for the SWO's mob for the first 2 weeks then straight on to Brutus. Came back, had about a week on ACF and then on to UKMF with the legendary "Tadge".

We used to refer to ACF as hotel flight:PDT_Xtremez_14:.

We also had para helmets so we were b*stard hard. ;)

Lots of time on the Plain - Keevel became a second home. With the odd trip north (West Freugh and Macrihanish for Purple Warrior, and Dishforth for yet another 'Lanyard' exercise).

The only ATC permanent staff were 2 flt lts with the unit borrowing an AATC from Brize Radar for deployments (a much younger climebear 86-88).

Happy days (apart from trying to get the landy that carried the tac flare path to go faster than 20mph uphill).

Which we used to ride around airheads using NVGs and never ever crashed while giving lifts to the OC, honestly officer. It wasn't us it was the nasty airborne soldiers. ;)

Just like those nasty airborne types raided the booze store on the ferry:PDT_Xtremez_30:.

Climebear

It's a fair cop.


The airborne types were too busy fighting with the bootneck types.

I'm sure that the guys who had the special MOD Police reception, were only trying to break the boredom of Crypto Guard, Cabin (avoiding aforementioned fights), Crypto Guard...

That's bought back a few memories! Icelandic Ferry serving raw fish to bring us back from West Freugh to Marchwood military port. Just what you need after a 2 week NEO exercise comprising 2 weeks of rain.

If you look at the ex wing lads page on Facetube, the culprits have photos of all the bevvy they nicked, which shows people were dafties even before the digital age:PDT_Xtremez_30:.

Funnily enough they are friends of mine on facetube.
One of them is the only man I know to ever come out of Colchester fatter than he went in.

IIRC 5 Airborne Brigade did do NBC much. I can only recall it briefly on one exercise. Which was a nice change from Station exercises, MINIVALS, and TACEVALS.

Correct in one. A character and a half.

Tadger found out his nickname because of the large chap. It was after an excercise at Catterick in 1989 and we were having the post-ex pi$$ up. He started rabbiting on about something and kept referring to tadger who was stood 2 feet away. His face was a picture:PDT_Xtremez_30:.

Also, on that exercise, every fcuker got scabies:PDT_Xtremez_32:. The only good thing about that was walking into stores and swapping all your knackered kit. The storemen never even checked what we were handing back:PDT_Xtremez_14:.

....anyone remember t** e****, m***** l****, j*** n*** (before he had his brain removed at cranwell), flt lt d**** l*** (c*ck), flt lt d*** h*** (ex TA 10 para officer & a nutter) from Tac ATC ?

The DZ patch was re-introduced for use on 5 Bde exercises, and the pain of it was having to keep taking the bloody thing off when we weren't doing 5 Bde stuff! And the fact that it kept upsetting the station commander amongst others - lol!

Para helmets seemed to be a 'one size fits all' category! And as for the bergans, they certainly helped with more luggage space for a few tinnies - lol!

Yep, the TFP landy had seen better days, but the PAGL was a real pain in the arse to set up - 3 friggin days!!

Flt Lts L***** and H**** were there when I started (after J*** N***). Flt Lt H**** was replaced by Flt Lt C***** shortly after. My last exercise (at Dishforth) was also Flt Lt L******** - the last I heard of him was when he was in charge of the fire school in Manston.

Tadger was on my Brutus in 87, he and Flt Lt J**** turned a blind eye when I led a mutiny against our ineffective commander so we wouldn't come last. :PDT_Xtremez_14:

Never forget seeing him in the hanger one day with a stunning black eye, apparently Bootnecks were enemy and didn't believe it when he shot them.

I remember the scabies outbreak, never hot bagged it after that, just in case.

Always found just wearing TCW rankslides did that most effectively.
