Without a Regular Force Maintainer Platoon/Troop etc any significant equipment will not be able to be maintained IMHO at the Res level.
However if the local armories have simulators - pooled equipment with Reg Force maintenance staff can keep the equipment going - and be available for collect training on Weekends/Summers - and the simulators can keep the Res force up to speed during the other times.
I agree on the need for reg force maintainers. I was alluding to pooling the Bisons and Bv206s so as to make them easier to maintain and keep ready. Both the Bison and the Bv206, known in the US as the USMC's LAV-Logistics and the US Army's Small Unit Support Vehicle, are support and logistics vehicles.
