Intelligence cell living up to it's reputation again.
It could never happen in the UK...

What a jolly jape! Half fill the mags with live, then top up with blanks before dishing them out to the troops.
Will I ever feel comfortable accepting a filled magazine from the DS staff?
Trained by the septics one wonders.
17 people hit by [Famas using 5.56?] live rounds and no fatalities? Sounds a bit strange or very lucky. Why did he not stop firing when targets screamed and fell when hit?

I remember when I was a young LAC at Kinloss in the Bomb Dump & the was a major TacEval on,we had trainees bussed in ect (Lionheart 84 I think) the US Marines were responsible for the Special Weapons Storage Site as the nuke's we used on Nimrods were US Navy.
Anyway,the USN C130 lands & the Marines burst out,gung ho to f*ck!Us Brits & the Rocks stand around gobsmacked.Thing was,half the USM's were live armed & half were'nt.
For the duration of the excercise,the long way around,avoiding the SWSA was taken.....
