GROIN ARMOUR?

Discussion in 'Infantry' started by abgingernuts, Jun 13, 2010.

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. I was wondering whether troops could somehow attach the shoulder armour below their osprey to make some sort of improvised groin armour? Do all troops even get issued the shoulder protection? Sorry I'm a bit of an armchair general :D Plus I'm 16!

    Just putting the idea out there.

    I was thinking if some of the troops did this it mite save their nuts.

    Look!

    Never seen British Troops wearing groin armour. The US Marines always seem to have it fitted. I wear it at work but I dont ever have to walk far,if I did I would ditch it to be fair. It is a pain in the arse in the kneel but I do like my nads as they are and as crims tend to snatch and shoot low I reckon ill live with it.

    I did ditch it pronto as I would come back in with aching plums and no desire to move fast when out there. Just thinking of your plums when you have to move takes your mind off other, slightly more pressing issues.
     
  4. Quite a few lads have spoken about it, nothing to do with the major arteries but more to do with protecting their cocks, however it isn't an option so crossing fingers will have to do instead.
     
  5. Having spoken to a lad who lost a leg recently when I returned to the UK, he said when he was still concious and had realised what had happened to him, when he looked down at the mess of his legs all he could think about what whether he still had his full 3 set.
    **** loosing a leg, terrible thing to happen, but loosing them as well, doesn't bare even thinking about. Double life changing.
     
  6. I think its an important area to have armour developed as people have said 'cups' don't help but a specialist one designed for the military would be good

    afterall a good shot to the nads is as disabling as being shot right?

    i dont really wanna test the theory tho...
