CFT weights...

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. Quick Q can somebody confirm - are the weights INCLUSIVE of wpn etc, or EXCLUSIVE? I'd thought that eg. 25kg was the all-up weight...

    TIA

  2. The stated weight should be inclusive of everything except water and food consumed during the test, so I'm led to believe.

    Aren't you meant to be the SME on this kind of thing?
     
  3. Nope I'm not a PTI.

    But I do want to know...

  4. H3

    H3 LE

    Seem to recall 56 lb inclusive of wpn but regards the food and water surely you'd hydrate before and at the half way point maybe , for the food you wont have time !!!!
     
  5. From MATT 2 directly:

    The load carried for the test (see Table 6 below) is
    inclusive of personal weapon and all ancillary items of
    equipment (helmet, Combat Body Armour (CBA) etc).
