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. Just out of curiosity can someone tell me what the difference is between a Mk6 and the new all singing all dancing Mk6a helmet as paraded at the same time as the silver underwear?

    I thank you

    The new one has a mesh inner rather than a piece of knotted string to balance it on your bonce. It also claims 40% better protection, oh, and it's black!

  3. Anyone got a link?
     
  4. So whats this Mk4a NBC suit? Hows the new one different from the noddy suit we've all come to know and hate?
    Gook
     
  5. Its made by a company for the MOD for cheaper :D
     
  6. Yeh probably! They probably missed out the charcoal for reasons of cost and to save on storage space!
