Hey just a quick one, dose anyone know if the Osprey vest is going to be issued in DPM some time in the future as a replacement for CBA?

It would make sence to, but who knows.

What on earth would you use it for in the UK (or Germany) though? Outside of Telic/Herrick, it has no use at all with the Army.

I was just wondering if it would eventualy replace CBA across the board. the yanks use a similar plate carrying system weather in conventional opperations OR pso. it might be the direction the gear is headed.

Impractical for what you fcuking tube! To stop you getting your insides spread over your mates and your next of kin getting the dreaded knock or for walting it around with your airsoft mates!

Kinda see what he means. Most of the training for the hot sandy places is done in temperate areas, and involves live firing. Surely from pov of training realism and range safety, temperate dpm osprey may be of use?
