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. Am I right in thinking that Osprey is now required for training that involves live firing?
    I'm sure I heard something about it becoming a requirement earlier in the year. Then again, it could have been a load of bollocks which I was told...
     
  2. onIs there enough to go round?
     
  3. That didnt come out right.............................................................

    Is there enough to go round?
     
  4. No you must ECBA the old style stuff with the little plate
     
  5. No Osprey allowed out of theater..must be ECBA.....
     
  6. And only Units who are issued it!, ie if you have it in your stores, that applies more to us STABs but makes very little sense, I don't know about Tatrans mob but by parent mob don't hold any, just a pool.
     
  7. Probably to familairise yourselves with weraing whilst firing, feck me that actually makes sense!
     
  8. All osprey is held as pool stores in the UK for pre-op
    seems i was wrong about none in the UK....oh well
     
  9. Yeah, I had a set at Thetford the other week complete with bloodstains, very reassuring.
