      There’s been a couple of other photos in the last little while that suggested that as well.

          I'm impressed lads - good spot. Ye may well be correct...

          • I won't be going into details but not everyone serving with that unit is male.

            • Here's another bit from social media suggesting a female:

                • what surprised me most about ARW was that officers can only have a very limited time in the Wing. It's as if it's deliberately designed to force you out after a few years. If I'm right, you can only join as a Captain and can't serve in it long enough to gain any rank beyond Commandant, usually forced out by age.

                    It's the same for most SF, from the SAS to CAG etc...Officers come in few a couple of years, leave, come back in, in less and less numbers as new ones are needed.

                          I'd say this is more statement of fact than idle speculation personally.

                          On the kit in use with the wing at present, and pictured, I wonder how much of their experience and influence will have gone into the Plate Carrier competition. Also, the additional rifle mag on the belt is an interesting one. Finally, the H&K416 seems to be the platform of choice in those pics, potentially a replacement for the Steyr in the future?
                          What are you cackling at, fatty? Too much pie, that's your problem.

                          • @odin those are battle belts and the way many (conventional, not just SF) militaries have gone

                            Generally you’ll have a couple of mags, trauma pouch, dump pouch and possibly pistol

                            It’s part of Fight Light

                              Some but probably not a massive amount. They don't necessarily have same requirements so won't necessarily be looking for same type of things. ARW using SIG pistols for years but HK won contract for general service pistol. General service helmets chosen different to high cut ones used by ARW also, different boots, etc. etc.

                              Don't think plate carrier samples shown for trials even had ARW brand one in the line up too.

                              Steyr could also be going for a long time yet before replacements need consideration..........
                              Fate whispers to the warrior, "There is a storm coming"

                              And the warrior whispers back "I am the storm".

                                Correct.
