Question RE FIST/ACOG

Discussion in 'Weapons, Equipment & Rations' started by BevisRory, Oct 13, 2009.

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. What's the actual situation regarding the ACOG?

    Is it replacement for the SUSAT? An additional sight to choose from?

    I've been told it's a perm. replacement and that it's just temporary till 2011.

    Could anyone shed any light?
     
  2. why should the ACF worry?

    you won't get SUSATs when the Army ditch them, no matter what you might like to think.

    I've been told it's a perm. replacement and that it's just temporary till 2011.

    so it's permanent but temporary til 2011... huh?
     
  3. Funny thing is, it's on the ACF Forum..

    But the latter, my bad... I've been told 2 conflicting stories.. 1 its perm and 2 it's till 2011.
     
  4. no it's not, this is the QM and Clothing forum.
     
  5. The reason I'm asking is because of an argument on the ACF forum!
     
  6. ok found it, on another forum altogether.

    so your good little plan was to go back there pretending you know it all because somebody said so on ARRSE.

    well OK... all British troops are scheduled to be issued with laser guns that don't need sights because they automatically shoot the taliban.

    there you go.

    now get back to school.
     
  7. I believe Elcan won the FIST contract, and that the ACOG is a UOR for Herrick.

    But I could be wrong.

    I usually am.
