    Not a Wah, serious question.

    How much per unit cost is 9mm BALL and 7.62mm BLANK LINK?

    Work related question.

    Your help much appreciated by this Matelot.
     
  2. Never seen the blank for sale but last I saw in the local Sunday market was £50 a box of 9mm and £150 a GPMG belt.

    Cheers, no seriously very helpful.

    I was hoping that an AT or someone would be able to point me in the direction of were I could find the info.
     
  4. If you punch the NSN into a SCOC disk does it not give you a per unit cost?

    Navy mate, no idea what SCOC is.
     
  6. 9mm Ball £0.10

    7.62mm Blank Link £0.19

    Prices are the supply Price.

    There are 3 prices for ammo - Cost, Supply (cost + 7%) and target (cost + 25%).

    Cost it what it costs the Army to buy, supply is the cost when a unit expends it and target is what we sell it on for.

  8. Just one thing.

    Why did you ask in the Sappers forum?

    I thought ATs were Sappers, but I suspect that might not be the case now.... RLC?????

    This Army stuff is very confusing.

    But as a PWO(A) all my enquires are directed at the Engineers. I find that if something doesn't work follow these simple instructions:

    Never admit to being the last person to touch it.

    Hitting it with something will either get it to work, make you feel better or an engineer will come along and tell you to stop (you then have someone to fix it)

    If hitting it doesn't fix it then chances are it is electrical in nature.

    If in doubt switching it on/off quickly will fix 9 out of 10 problems FACT!
