    Just for firing a range once a year, i doubt it.

    Would imagine greens will still be used for that as cost is minimal.

    Navy FWG will remain.

    RAN still use the Navy FWG.

    €43,000 each in Civvy st. Approx €11m for 280 cars.

    Seems to be plenty of money for vehicles, planes and ships.

    Not so much for the operators of said equipment!.

    Proposed New GDR/DPM

    Due to go on trial this year.

    Will cover all types of duties in the NS.

    When on general issue, the only time green DPM will be worn is on a Land Overseas Deployment.
