New Kit for 16 Bde

For all the kit hounds amongst you, the BBC has been running an article on the new kit the Paras will receive for their tour. It was run on the Lunchtime News:

Linky starts at 16:40 in

A fuller version covering more of the Black Bag kit is here:

Is the last set of body armour shown in the second video purely Osprey Assault, but in green?

Aside from the new helmet, body armour and what appear to be better knee pads thats the same kits that 11 Brigade got issued last year and obviously the new cam.

Its a take off of the QR Plate carrier by condor, my reasoning behind this would be that most of Solo's kit is by condor and they are supplying the covers, even if they have not used condor direct the design is very similar ( I could be completly wrong though )

Is MTP really 'World leading' as stated in the second vid' ? :?

And there was I thinking that it's been around as multicam for years. Perhaps even the first case of the airsoft walts trialling kit that the military ends up using :twisted:

Nope, not even with yours.

And I'd be further away if I used mine.

just been chatting to some of the lads back on R&R and their saying MTP's far too thick and hot for an Afghan summer so prefer wearing the old desert kit.

Hopefully this is just a teething problem with the 1st batch and it'll be better when it come into service properly
