Is the UGL still in service?

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. Hey everyone!

    First of all I just thought I'd let you all know that I'm a newbie to this site, and so far it seems great!

    I'm only 14, so of course - like everyone - I'll make mistakes. However I might make more than you!

    Anyway, I have a question.

    What's happened to the AG36 Underslung Grenade Launcher?

    I mean, I play close attention to the media, and over the past few months I haven't seen any in up-coming material. Has the introduction of new weapons diminished UGL numbers, or has updates on the L85a2 changed something?

    I hope someone will help me out!

    Thank you!

    Steven :)

  3. 14 and pay close attention to the media????

    I know what I was paying attention to at 14, it was media...of the porn variety!

    Journo!

  5. Oh okay!
    Thanks for that!

    Also, sorry if I'm dragging on, but does anyone know how many UGLs are in each section? Is it 1 or 2?

  8. Between 0 and 100 per section. Any more operationally sensitive info you'd like?
     
  9. No thanks, that's it.
     
  10. In an infantry section one ugl per fireteam on tour. We don't use them other than that unless on. Pre deployment training. Although that's my battalion sop I can't speak for everyone
