  1. guys,

    in the link below at 1:00, a tribute to the light dragoons, it shows a uk soldier with a compact ar15 pattern rifle with acog and red dot set up, can anyone elaborate on his unit - do some of the LD use ar15's??

  2. Looks like a close protection type with a diemeco C8!
  3. It's just a chad vid with someones pics and a load of generic Herrick phots. I'd guess the lad you are referring to is a Bde Commanders bodyguard (usually RMP).
  4. Also don't forget that kit is often swapped with the septics, Danes and others to pose on piccies...

  5. Thats an RMP close protection bod, god knows why they are allowed yank helmets, body armour and c8s but they are..

  6. They aren't allowed Paraclete RAV or yank helmets anymore, Mk7 and Osprey 4 now.

    They have different things because they are funded in part by the FCO and are included in some of the DSF kit buys.
  7. When did the Green teams lose the Paraclete? They still had it on H13?
  8. H14?
  9. He is definitely a Light Dragoon and part of The Jordanian Armed Forces Special Forces Liaison Team. They were issued M4's along with a hybrid mix of US/UK kit and deployed in HUMVEE's. They conducted long range patrols in and around AO's ROBIN and JUNO.

    Ooh jobs for the boys, given that HMK Abdullah is Colonel of the Light Dragoons and ex-special forces.
