The Israelis, who clothe their slovenly soldiers in bolts of 60 year old French Dien Bien Phu and US Vietnam reject offcut cloth, in the interest of saving the shekels, have now decided to try out a new uniform
I recall coming to Italy in 99, Bit of a stir in the government as back in 1950/60 had a few hundred thousand troops (plus), conscripts on call.
In 89 working in Italy the poor conscripts were called up and became, grass cutters, bar men, painters etc...
When they went to a volunteer Force they found many old contracts requiring XXX thousand pairs of boots, socks, et all that were still being carried out. Mind I have never seen a 2 year old soldier in Italy?
Seems those favoured companies just , kind of , changed the official requirement to that , which made money.
Like anyone is going to notice when they under water.
Where did you get the bit about nuclear cruise missile equipped? The Izzies bought their boats from Germany, which are more or less the same as the German boats, ie no cruise missiles.
