    i know we have Stingers, but in all my time in the British Army i've never seen a Stinger but we do regularly deploy in training and on operations with the HVM, even on exercise the RA guys will always be found on the high-ground around the battalion providing top cover whilst Rapier would be seen in the more important AOR's containing other key installations.

    A reason to deploy with at least a token AA capability, I would have thought? (not that I am expert on international diplomacy in relation to UN missions, I hasten to add).
