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. Can anyone help with some digital pictures of 5.56mm ammunition types, I'm doing a presentation board for my local cadet unit to cover the characteristics.

    I've only got some old ones on OHP!

    looking for Ball, Tracer, LPTR (if anyone has seen them!) Drill & Blank. :?

    Cheers guys!

  2. Thanks bud! :D
  3. Don't bother with the LPTR - never used, never seen
  4. Yeah was surprised - never seen them - but apparently its in their manual????
  5. You could find 7.62mm pictures, and shrink them a little ;)
  6. At least with pictures of 7.62 when people look at them they go down and stay down.
    Bring back pictures of the SLR I say.

    WARNING - Pretty graphic video so probably NSFW.

    Shows the use of the 5.56mm ball.

    Ignore the stuff about the US, this was UK troops. (or at least that was what I was told)
  8. Targets fall when hit!

    Wise for young cadet types - think not, although with colour! :twisted:
  9. LPTR?

    *No Wah*
  10. Low Power Training Round.

    Mythical beast - much talked of but never seen since the blue plastic 7.62mm versions disappeared.
  11. Spoken like a true dinosaur 8O
  12. Unless I am mistaken it was a PWRR callsign near OSB in 2004.

  13. Yep, SLR withdrawn from service over 20 years ago and still they bleat on about it :D

    Im pretty sure that nobody on current ops would want to trade their A2 for it.

  14. Wasn't quite 20 years ago!
    Calling it 20 years makes some people feel older than they really are..... :D
  15. I certainly know plenty who would in a heart beat. I'm not one of them. Me, i'll stick to being one of very few JNCO's I know who likes the LSW.

    However I'm going off thread!
