Clipping you onto the side of a helicopter that doesn't have a spare seat inside, perhaps?

My guess - It is for whatever you need to use it for. It must be a relatively new piece of kit as I cant remember ever having been issued one. Can you confirm what, if any, markings are on it, weight limits etc.

Its for attaching your began, day sack to the outside of mastiffs etc. Although there are two schools of thought over this practise.

Care to divulge, so we can rip apart the one that's toss.

I would love to, but I'm sure some one would then flame me for breaching, as they see it OPSEC
Not really as how would it aid the enemy.

Are we talking no loose kit on the inside to avoid missile hazard?

No ECM or weapons on the outside - well that's easy, secure it inside.

Hardly difficult.

Yep thats the two schools

Except some people want everything on the outside because they're too lazy to secure it on the inside.

Guys,

Any idea what the carabiner issued from Chilwell for op tour is for. It is bloody huge, so it must be something pretty hefty?

Cheers!
At Chilwell they issue a huge carabiner in case the fat stabs passing through there actually try using it for abseiling. Us super lean ARABs get issued a regular sized one! ;-)

Don't they also use it to underslung STABS because they won't fit in a chinook?

I know the answer to this (really I do),

School of thought 1, attach kit to the outside, soldiers nicely tucked up inside.

School of thought 2, secure kit inside so you don't have any difffies, secure soldiers to the outside to maximumise all round observation.

Was I right?
