In colder days the primary raison d'etre for the MRT Force (ie 66 Hercs at 1M per) was the Para Brigade, and the explanation from the Army for the purpose of the Para Brigade was to fully exploit the existence of the MRT Force!!! Both of course would have been wiped from the face of the earth by any Migs that got through the Air Supremacy Battle above them if the big red telephone had rung, negating further debate on why either should survive the other. If the Tartan Army closes down the T.B. Exciting Expeditionary Tours package, that debate could re-emerge and not only PTI's would find themselves left out on a limb!
