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. Last week we had a breifing from the kit development/procurment people
    Who wanted to know what we thought about kit issused for telic and input
    on some new ideas they had.
    ill list the kit items they working on
    desert hat to have elastic chin strap and possible neck protector
    reversible desert/dpm helmet cover made of waterproof material
    reversible desert/dpm bergan cover same material
    weapon sleeve bag designed to protect sa80 and still avble to fire throught it in emergency . apprently marines/16air assault want this
    new sleeping system softie 3and softie6 zip together very nice but no
    budget for it at moment :(
    supposedly trialing new shades as noone wearing issuse porn specs
    Kit we supposed to get in next month copvests for everyone
    shemaghs instead of half bed sheet we got
    letherman like multitools and minimaglites supposed to be indvidiual issuse
    And in future windproof smock instead of field smock and desert gortex
    Ohh and the softie suit so good even yanks want to get hold of it
  2. but will anyone ever see this kit??
  3. hardon inducing stuff, but I'll believe it when I see it.
  4. No way, the Marines, Paras and Loggies will nab it all before it gets to anyone else. Line Inf... don't hold your breath :roll:
  5. Bet the shemaghs turn out to be those 'orrible snarly, synthetic things, that popped up a few months ago, instead of the soft cotton type. Anything to save a penny at the troops' expense!
  6. assualt vests have been talke about for a while they are cheaper than PLCE which is about £300 a set.
