Thing was in the days of Fox, BATUS was was a battlegroup trainer for BAOR battlegroups, whereas Fox was used by UKLF troops.


As Bazz says, Scimitars were the only recce vehicles necessary. Scorpions weren't necessary because they were used for medium recce and were always used by their own battlegroups, never attached to the armour or infantry battlegroups. Because the medium recce battlegroup could exercise on West German Roads, there was never any need for us to go to BATUS.


Only close recce troops from the Armed Recce Regt's close recce sqn were attached to other BGs, and these were always in Scimitars.
