It used to be just the "Weapons Course" and was divided into Light Weapons and Heavy Weapons. You say there was two weapons courses, one for 11B and one for 11C in 82/83? I wasn't paying much attention to the course during that time period but that's the first I've heard of two courses.

I went through just the weapons course in 1978ish to pick up a secondary SF MOS and it had both light and heavy sections.

Trends in SF can be very specific in time and location - just like non SF people wearing the GB. You had the Candy Stripe period (flash qualified) and the Preggo Cook period (group hug).
