HC Deb 12 January 1987 vol 108 c98W
Mr. McNamara

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many troops are required to operate and maintain a regiment of tanks.

Mr. Stanley

The precise numbers vary according to its composition and role, but about 600 officers and men are required for the operation and first line maintenance of an armoured regiment. However, the second and third line administrative, transport and workshop support required are not allocated on a regimental basis.
