    Lease until another partner nation joins the mission I believe.

    Although, I'm also told and alternative to the Finn handled comms system will be in place for the next rotation.

    A lot of changing information!

      Some comms equipment has been purchased from the Finns. Their attitude seems to be if you want it you buy it, no leasing
      Originally they said all Sisu's were being repatriated home but now we're getting a handful.

        "No, sir. He's a sergeant, and they don't deserve no respect at all, sir. I should know. They're cunning and artful, if they're any good. I wouldn't mind if he was an officer, sir. But sergeants are clever."

              All Finnish XA180 have been upgraded to XA185 standard.
              As an aside, are our two home based Sisu still in service?
              For now, everything hangs on implementation of the CoDF report.

                At least 1 is currently in a gate guardian type position I think the other is in running order

                      • probably keeping sealant protected as it dries?..........a ton and a half? is that all? It's a hell of a cost just to shift a ton and a half. I hope there was more to it than just that The aircraft has a published payload of 6 tons.

                        • It would also be a huge waste of a 20 foot container, unless it was a very bulky load.

                            Weight of 5.56mm ammo can = 15.1kg (1000rds) (Google)
                            Total ammo boxes = 1500/15.1 = approx 100 cans
                            Battlevest has 4 X double magazine (30rds) pouches = 240rds per soldier +30rds on rifle = 270rds per soldier (wiki)

                            100cans X 1000rds = 100,000rds ÷ 270per soldier = 370 soldiers

                              Doubt a 20ft would fit it’s probably just picking up the cargo

                                Never suggested it would be carried in the hold, just that 1.5kg of ordnance could just as easily be carried on a pallet(or two), and loaded into a flatbed or back of a truck. If you put it into the back of a 20 foot you have to secure it in an otherwise empty box so it won't move as it is loaded or unloaded from the DROPS vehicle.
