      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?
      They did. A few members of the review board were Ex unit. You can forget the 416 as the AUG replacement.Too expensive. I would bank on HK pushing the HK433 on us in any competition,they gotta make back the money they spent developing it when the BW didn't pick it up. A good bet would be us going with the RS.556 developed by Rheinmetal/Steyr for the same BW trials. An AR15 style rifle, which seems to be all the rage at the moment, but with soem features familiar to AUG users. Might shorten training time if introduced.

      Big developments coming for the unit under the White paper fairly soon.Good time to be in the unit.
      "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.

        Apologies I didn't mean to cause issues or get lads in trouble.

            Continuing the Wing tradition of "I'll wear whatever the fk I want on my feet" I see....

            • Lugnaquilla looks great this time of year. Is that Tourlogh hill in the distance.....
              German 1: Private Schnutz, I have bad news for you.
              German 2: Private? I am a general!
              German 1: That is the bad news.
