  2. I would be mildly interested if only I knew what a 'redux' was.
  3. redux |r??d?ks; ?r??d?ks|
    adjective [ postpositive ]
    brought back; revived : the 1980s were far more than just the '50s redux.
    ORIGIN late 19th cent.: from Latin, from reducere ‘bring back.’
  4. We were first!


    In fact this was the second occasion we were there!
  5. Some very good and quite interesting photographs but I have to ask, what the feck is this?


    It looks like an L82A1 on a metric arse-ton of steroids. Ladies and gentlemen I think we've just found the sniper walts new favourite weapon. ;)

    Ah yes the 'Anglo-Afghan War II - This Time It's Personal!' Well, couldn't have done any worse than the first time around.

  9. So no real difference from putting a sight on a L2A1. From the angle of the picture it just looked much larger.

    Aside from the Afghanistan ones there are also a number of other interesting sets of photographs linked to down at the bottom of the page. My personal favourite so far has to the collapsable Ka-56 "Wasp" one man helicopter. I wonder what the range and maximum altitude of one of these things is. :)
  10. It would be interesting to find out the story behind the Willis jeep a locals or old surplus war stock used by the Russians
