Looking at the picture this will end up in yet another Army v RAF Regt thread. :roll:

This caught my eye:

"Full details of the range remain secret, and it is unclear whether the figures will include female servicemen or women to appeal to young girls."

Is that in reference to hypocrocopigs that fall under neither catagory????

"Female servicemen or women"??? Someone's overdosing on political correctness.


I foresee a problem. Baddies. Who is "HM Armed Forces" going to fight? Looks like they'll need to produce a range of green, red, white and blue armbands in order to stage a realistic training exercise.

Like a young lad pushing a wheelbarrow with a built in clock/timer attached to some curly wires ?

What's up with the Booty's beret? Presumably the capbadge has gone so far past his left ear that its now back over the middle of his forehead?

The RAF regt design was binned at a very early stage. They could manufacture thousands of 'em but they'd never leave the shop !

Additionally, it required too many accessories.
