Those units you listed are the exclusive preserve of RC/SSC officers with the exception of Ordinance where you can also find DSSC.
To your question all those units are the frontline guys, the Infantry is the queen of the battle field they are mostly the boots on ground, they also operate some motorised(Mechanised Infantry) platforms like MRAPs, APC, IFVs etc HQ is in Jaji, Kaduna. Armour guys HQ is in Bauchi they're are usually the guys leading the charge with their tanks such as the T-72s, Panhards M3 VPMs, VT4 tanks and other motorized platforms etc. The infantry follow them behind. Armour divisions are usually located in border towns, I think it was during IBB's tenure they were "banished" to faraway communities (border town) in his bid to protect his regime from coups.
Artillery guys are also frontline guys but they give artillery cover with big guns such as PLZ-52 155mm SP howitzers, quad-barreled Self-Propelled Anti-Aircraft Gun system, gun mortars etc to both the armor and Infantry guys, they "soften" ground for both corps. Usually at the rear of both Infantry and armour units, when water pass Garri, the infantry guys will give the artillery guys co-ordinates to launch their big guns.
They also can be embedded even in trenches with other units from where they can launch their projectiles in a situation where there is a trench to trench engagements. Their HQ is in Kachia, Kaduna.
Now selection is done by the type of course you studied, though you'll be given a form to make your choice but the ultimate decision lies with the army. People that studied Geography, Geology, physics, mathematics similar courses most likely will find themselves in artillery.
Majority of officers will be in infantry especially those that studied anyhow course in the university like agriculture, fishery, fashion design, baking, etc
I may be wrong though, but this is usually the trend.

Modified:
Irrespective of the corps you're in you can still lead operations as long as you're a Combatant officer.

You can all see that SSC/RC is were the real deal lies, as for DSSC it is a boring commission. na to dey starch Khaki upandan grin











lollll

No be your target be this?

I've never hidden my admiration for SSC, circumstances beyond my control is the reason I went for DSSC.

ideally bro it’s supposed to be 5 years on the lieutenant to captain rank..all Rcs were just promoted after 4/5 years that’s 62rc... the new hermonised terms and conditions made it 5 years on all ranks for all commissions in the military...but it came to my understanding of recent, doe I don’t know how true it is that there are some Dssc guys who are currently on their 7th year for captain promotion... we had an argument a while ago about this and the guy messaged me with his proof... I’m still not sure about it but ideally, all commissions will carry a 5 year promotion period

I'm not sure but when course 44 passed out in 2017 according to the HTACOS then it was supposed to be 18months from 2nd Lt to Lt, 3yrs from Lt to Captain, making it almost 5yrs. Don't know what is obtainable now @eclipsehemmy can be of help.

It even states here that an SSC Officer can’t have power of command over an RC Officer if they are on the same rank... and I think it’s irrespective of seniority on rank..

This is correct actually.. except if there are any changes now... the only thing I’m not sure of now is the lieutenant to captain rank... if it’s 3 or 5 years
