1) We do not know but have taken out and shot four random css programmers just to be on the safe side.

2) To pilot a German Jaeger, the normal course of action would be to apply to a Luftwaffe Fliegerersatzabteilung, spend six months there, then graduate to an A/B Schule. Here the most promising candidates would be scouted out by the Panzerwehr training officers and transferred to a guarded facility somewhere in the Bergen-Hohne training area, where they would be told they are in line to pilot a prototype fighterplane. After one year of exposure to an anti-radiation serum and resuming flight on various aircraft, those pilots who pass would have the true purpose of their training revelaed, given a Panzerwehr commission and given access to a training walker. Live fire excercises are common in the Panzerwehr training grounds so unfortunately not all candidates live through the arduous training process. Those who did not complete the training for what ever reason would be posthumously awarded with the Iron Cross 2nd Class.

After 480 hours of walker training the surviving candidates would be given the rank of Leutnant and transferred to one of the eight nuclear dirigibles of the Panzerwehr to participate in combat operations.

An "initiation mission" is common for the rookies. The details of the ritual have been lost from the record.

To become a Samokhod Tankist of the Soviet Empire, the usual way to get scouted was to serve in one of the Guards Motor Tank Divisions as a tankist. Only tank commanders of the rank of Guards Captain, with a distinguished service record and exemplary political outlook, were considered for the promotion*.

Once this would happen, they would be attached to a special training regiment. The name of this regiment is a secret but historians point out a suspicious "heavy tractor training battalion" that can sometimes be found in some of the unmodified organizational charts, which was under the direct command of Stavka and appears to have received inordinate amount of spare parts, resources and ordnance, including high-calibre tank cannons.

Once the training course was completed, the Samokhod Tankist would be given a Samokhod and a maintenance crew and attached to the tank brigade of of a Guards Mechanized Corps or a Guards Tank Corps. Samokhods were organized into independent companies and usually commanded by the Corps commander.

*Contrary to popular opinion, one did not need to be awarded the title of the Hero of the Soviet Empire to become a Samokhod Tankist. This mistake probably originates from the fact that most Samokhod Tankists were so instrumental in the operation of Soviet Empire's Guards divisions, and so proverbially given to heroics and unhinged battlefield improvization, that many of them were given the title of Hero during their commission in walker operations.

What if I asked really politely?
I've been told I don't care if I live or die, if that sweetens the deal.
