Multi-day (usually) scenarios where skills are put to use. Think the first is exercise first step where you spend a night in the field, others include hunters moon (survival) and final exercise (culmination of everything learned).

I'm guessing the Viking training package is some kind of familiarisation with the Viking ATV.

Yeah you just get acquainted with them and the safety drills when conducting river crosses with them.
As for ex running man that I do believe doesn't happen anymore and baptist run is just a bit longer instead.

Or in our case you get to look at them from afar whilst being *text deleted**text deleted**text deleted**text deleted* around the huge dunes of Bovington training area.

Haha more than ideal!
Bit that gets me is they can't float of such on water if they have a mounted gun on top cover?

On another note..I recently had the pleasure of witnessing someone performing 50 super gecko-eeor-'burpees' whilst wearing crampons!
