    It is also role specific.

    A driver will have a different load out than a rifleman, sniper, etc

      ...packet of fags, mars bars, haribo jellys, the Sun and a tacticool 10,000 lumen torch!
      Fate whispers to the warrior, "There is a storm coming"

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

        Well snipers would need reading material while they are waiting for a target to appear

            Back to point...improvements for smock and trousers, etc.

            Anybody else doing better versions of combat jackets that we could borrow ideas from?

            UK with PCS has pretty much relegated smock to an outer wear item when / only if CBA, webbing not worn. Instead using shirt (or UBACS or raingear if appropriate) as lightwieght outer with thermal layers below it in normal tactical roles.

                Not quite so.Go over to ARRSE and read all the bitching about how when the CS95 "Lightweight jacket" IE shirt came out and how it was intended to be worn as outer layer in warm weather.
                But they weren't allowed as "outer layer" ONLY meant smock to the hierarchy at the time.Some people would even say that attitude hasn't changed in some units.Even since the advent of PCS.

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.

                  hey there guys, I'm sorry I couldn't make a new post (not sure why) so I'm just gonna ask it here. I've heard soldiers are allowed to have some oxy with them just in case. I mean, is that true? that's an pain killer that is given strictly with prescription but someone told me that they give it to *soldier's kit* I doubt it but that's why I am here. IMO it is much likely to be a kamagra in there than oxy :D

                      Mod note : discussion about opioids/Oxycontin is not permitted on thread, medical issues are strictly the province of the MO

                        Tender for new DPM items and SD items is out.
                        A few changes with the DPM's. Some good.Some not so IMHO.
                        SD's no change to current pattern as far as I can see.

                          What are the changes to the DPMs?

                          I saw a few people trialling the new boot today... Haix Scout in brown.

                            Pity, the high collar that did the rounds last year looked great IMO.
                            What are you cackling at, fatty? Too much pie, that's your problem.

                              Thought it looked shite TBH without a revamp of the remainder of the tunic/whole uniform
