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:

    A piece on sniper training is here:


    And for those with shorter attention spans, the Newsbeat version is here:


    That should keep you happy!
  2. Is the last set of body armour shown in the second video purely Osprey Assault, but in green?
  3. Yes, last image is Osprey with green blackhawk cover.
  4. 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.
  5. Its not a Blackhawk cover, if you ask me nicely I might tell you what it is

    It appears to be the new Osprey Assault but in green rather than tan.

    Would that be correct S20201?
  7. 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 )
  8. Completely and utterly, utterly wrong I am afraid!

  12. I heard a rumour that the bloke who runs solo was saying how cack the osprey cover as and he could do better.
