Says in the following link that 2RTR or elements of are deploying to Afghanistan. Are the tanks going as well or are they going in the dismounted role. Sorry if this question has already been answered somewhere else.

I'm in the QDG so have already been to a war zone, and no I'm not on about Dreamers on the weekend smart ARRSE. And I think you will find so have 2RTR a few times.
I was asking as I have a mate in 2RTR and he said he didn't have a clue.

If you were still in the last 5yrs, you may know them. If not you probably won't. When did you get out?

2 RTR are off to Afgan, FALCON deploy soon for a 6th month tour on a new vehicle called mastiff (big F off truck with 6 wheels and more guns than bin ladens garden shed). CYCLOPS and BADGER are off back to Iraq in May ish and EGYPT are already in Iraq!!!!!!! As well as all that 2 RTR move back to Tidworth in the summer with no-one bar RHQ to do it. Gotta love Blair! Overstreach? What? Us? Never.

Just another day inthe corp

Looks a beast, whats with the armour blocking the gun turret views though? :scratch:

"Compared to the original Cougar vehicle, Mastiff has been fitted with large, vertical armor plates which cover the large vision blocks and weapon firing ports. As the basic Cougar is already protected against RPG warheads, it is unclear why these plates were considered necessary by the British, especially as they totally block the crew's vision and make it impossible to use the firing ports. The crew is thus blind and disarmed, which does not make much sense in an urban combat context."

This is what there normally like. As you can see the british version has the side turrets covered in armour.
