5th Battalion The Rifles (5 RIFLES) is currently the only Rifles Battalion that uses the Warrior Armoured Fighting Vehicle. With its awesome firepower, protection and speed it means it is always up at the front of the battle. It has proved itself on numerous operations including Iraq, Afghanistan and The Balkans. Being in an armoured infantry battalion is interesting, exciting and rewarding.  Warrior has proven itself in recent conflicts and riflemen based in Paderborn will remain experts in armoured tactics working closely with tanks in an Armoured Battle Group.  Aaron left Marriotts in 2007
