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. Is there a new one being issued?

    In a form of a zip wallet?

    What use to be the string on a pullthrough now being a wire with a plastic coating? Also the oil bottle being transparent with a squirting nozzle?

  2. That is the operational cleaning kit, issued in zip case with 'curtain wire' pull through and spray bottle (been out about 2 years now mate)
  3. Thanks.

    What does it offer that the standard set doesn't?
  4. fcuk all

    i had a few buckshee ones but all got nicked/lost

    only plus side is the spray bottle really
  5. Been longer than that, we got issued them for Telic 4 in 2004, I think the lads on Telic 3 had them too.
  6. Try nearly 5.

    The pullthrough is much better for shoving down the big black pipe.
  7. My lot didnt get them on 3 but others could have got it .
