Combat Operations

If you choose a Warfare Branch career, your workplace will be unlike anywhere else you can imagine. You could find yourself on a large aircraft carrier with up to 1,000 others, a patrol vessel with a crew of 30, in a fleet submarine with 130 personnel or even with the Royal Navy's 'air force' - the Fleet Air Arm. Whichever direction you take, you will find variety unrivalled by any other career in civilian or military life.
