Brits armed with Colt Canada C8 in Afghanistan

#1












Any idea who those very public soldiers are ?

Edited for accuracy: not Colt M4 or HK 416 but Colt Canada C8 (Colt Canada being known as Diemaco until 2005...)

RMP Close Protection its an M4 you can tell they are CP guys becuase of the vest

They could be the RAF Police Tactical Provost Wing, they could be Garmsir airsoft walts.

On a forum like this such a speculative question, could only deserve a speculative answer.

Seeing as there's just the one of him and he's standing next to an american (are those ANA in the background?) I'd hazard a guess that he's attached to the Spams in some capacity and so is using their kit.

Might be wrong though.

This thread is dealing with the Diemaco (now Colt Canada BTW) which has been in British service for a while with UK SF; the above pictures seem different from the L119A1 SFW used by UK SF and from the C8 used by the PF.

They could be either RMP CP or SF unlikely to be the latter though purely for PERSEC reasons; they are extremely sensitive to 'facials' :oops:

Don't know about him, but I was out there at the same time and got chatting to a RAF Cpl ex-dog handler turned CP for a 3*, who let me handle his weapon (fnarr - sorry couldn't think of better way to phrase that). They are definately Diemarco's, modded for their CP role, fore grip that turns into a bi-pod (nifty) and a designator on the front.

I'm not a particulalry gun walt butI quite liked that, light, nice size and according to the guy accuarate.
