14h30 hrs and still in the office ? Is your watch broken ?I really hope we don't have to use it. Even you should understand that if it comes to the deployment of nuclear weapons that something went terribly wrong.

I know that your imagination is somewhat exuberant, but with all it's faults the Bundeswehr ist still an Army and not a french whorehouse.
In an Army there are orders and rules that have to be obeyed. If, and im a pretty sure that is the case, the operational rules say they have to go all dolled up they go all dolled up. Back in the good old days I wore my Bristol when the rules said it and not when i wanted to, and this thing was with it's 18kg and somewhat questionable ergonomics a pain in the arse.
