Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. ...what are the grill frames on the sides of military vehicles for, as seen on TV news etc?

    Please excuse my ignorance. :oops:
     
  2. Do you mean the ones in Afghan/Iraq, if so without giving anything away protection against RPG ect.
     
  3. The venetian blind looking panels are for identifying friendlies on IR. The metal bird cages provide stand off from HEAT warheads ala RPG rockets.
