  • Inventory

    We are currently updating the information on the site, but we're lacking in some departments. We'd be grateful if everyone could chip in to help build an inventory of what the DF has, vehicles, weapons and the like.

    Leave whatever you can in this thread.

    Thanks

      Being replaced with a rifled 120mm mortar, it seems. The old one was retired, as the ammunition was too expensive

        They're actually being downgraded to L119s for domestic training savings.
        The L119 being less capable but the L118 parts will be used in any future Arty o/seas deployment.

              Am still trying to work this one out, the L-119 offers so many advantages over the L-118 in terms of ammunition, standardisation, etc.

                        So is the DF looking to buy the HDT, or is it just something off in the future?

                            According to the FAS.com website, the only basic difference between the L118 and L119 105mm's, is that the L119 can fire all NATO standard 105mm ammo, while the L118 can only fire the Abbott designed rounds (a UK self propelled gun), which isn't in service any more, so are the rounds still made?

                              The L119 is percussion fused and uses cheaper rounds fired from a shorter barrel hence the training benefits.
