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. Came across this today and it got me wondering if there is any better remote explosive detection out there that anyone knows of? one of these mounted on a Very Heavily Armoured Vehicle out in front of Patrols/convoys could possibly help with the IED threat but the current distance it can detect explosives at is the only downside, I believe the Russians have a system and I will try and find it to add to here ...

  2. Any new bit of kit is always welcome.

    But I can see one huge disadvantage – it requires line of sight to the suspected target that has a sample on the surface that is scanned.

    Unlike a search dog, combat indicators and not forgetting the hairs on the back of your neck.
     
  3. Probably not a subject to be discussed in any detail on this means.
     
  4. Fkit every time they bring out a new piece of detection kit I get arrested at the airport. Sigh.
     
  5. Now you're going to get arrested all uber de platz! :D
     
  6. I agree but having said that if you google or whatever you could find something that is in general circulation however ...............politicians followed by chavs are my favourite :p
