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. Is this some kind of new helmet cover or have they just got a throbbing troop(flight?) boss?

  2. Whats up with it ?
  3. The answer is a resounding NO to both of your questions.

    You however are a penis.

  4. TFH have waded into the helmet cam debate by making this compulsory in their battlefield discipline SOI. Yes including staff wallahs going into their battlespace, ie visiting lash from BSN. Awesome

  5. So H15 NO scrim, tape or anything. H16. Cabbage patch doll everywhere......
  6. There is a new helmet cover however.
  7. Everyone used to do it once.

    They will be issuing SLR's again next.
  8. Breaking up the outline! :) Like in the old days.
  9. When you get issued you new mk7 helmet cover it comes with a bag of MTP strips to allow you to do this and break up the shape of the helmet.
  10. Or you could just use a sand bag like all us normals.
  11. If you read the infantry briefing note that went with the no tape/scrim it meant the netting type of scrim that did nothing for braking up the shape of the helmet.

    However it did recommend doing this with strips of material.
  12. Every edition of the infantry training manual since the 1930's has suggested doing that.

    so its the cabbage patch helmet as done by several US units, makes sense and why didnt we do it sooner.

    if you like the israeli sniper helmet covers (clown hats) then you can make your own using the daysack cover for that wearing a 1950's recruit beret over your helmet look.
  14. All members of 12X on tour have to have their helmets cammed up regardless of their role or job. It is very effective in the green zone, hopefully it's something that will be kept up in the UK.
  15. Are they using cam cream / paint also?
