    I read the lot.

    Some of it really is a no-brainer. The cost savings of consolidation to reduce the Cadre numbers and payroll are large and obvious. Dropping the gratuity seems to make sense as...

    Odd statement. Surely there would be even less demand for combat troops during peacetime. Most of the US Army's combat capability is in its reserves. Keeping the equipment ticking over with...

    I can do an Eland 90 this weekends, but I must admit to not being entirely sure if it's the GIAT or DEFA gun in the thing.

    Decided to just call the DF 'Phone book. (AKA the Press Office) to see if they could put me in touch.

    Figured it was going to be their weird call of the day, but I hadn't counted on the Queen's...
  11. Anyone have a manual for an M3 Panhard?

    I can get to drive one if I can find something which tells me how to.

    I will also accept an email address for the Cavalry Corps museum...

    Interesting that they're called 'Cars'

    In fairness, there are quite a number of European militaries which conduct events with the local communities in order to promote fitness.

    It will be interesting to compare the XM-25 with the K11 which entered Korean service a couple of years ago. Both use a laser rangefinder to set an airburst time, but the Koreans managed to integrate...

    This would be correct, which is exactly why you can't hang around and wait for another squad (or section, which in US terms is two squads) to show up. The hardest part about the kinetic side in COIN...
