Pah lightweights what about a 8 hour working day excavating contaminated soil wearing the old Soviet rubber kit at 30°+ (internal temp of the suits was measured at 50°C+) the only way we could manage it was having a firehose permantly spraying the area and all working in it.

Try starting a 2 hour stint in full IPE in a contaminated environment and realising you've got a fly inside your mask.

i still think the defecation drill would be prety challenging....
What do you mean, would? That's the trouble with the training today. Too much explaining of what you need to do and not enough actually doing it.

One of the lads on my det-cdrs course had the bright idea of bringing a hollowed-out cannister for the NBC phase. How the rest of us laughed when the DS used CS hahaha.

What possible advantage can ther be to having a 'hollowed out' canister? There's no saving in weight, and if your canister is okay there's no real ease in breathing. There is however, as this idiot found out, a disadvantage. Good for the others moral though.

It was fantastic for our morale. The tw@ concerned had benn banging on about how clever he was for ages. It does make a difference, especially if - like him - you have extra air holes on the rear part of the can, where the DS can't see them. When they pumped that CS into his basha I felt that there was justice in the world.
