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. Apparently the sa80 a3 has a thermal imaging attachment on the SUSAT - can anyone else clarify this?

    What else is new?

    We we're only briefly told about it Wednesday evening.
  2. Biped

    The septics are already fielding NV with a thermal image overlay - very sexy.

    Doubt we'll get anything like it for about 15 years or so.
  3. Don't believe anything until you are actually holding the piece of sh1t in your hands. Yes thats right, sh1t, cos everything the army buys is unquestionably sh1te

  4. And no doubt they'll not allow the technology out of the US. It's not about how much you can buy, it's about what you can buy as the US close shop on new technology.
  5. hmm maybe all the susats will be given to the other corps for standard issue. Ill be lookin forward to that. But like biped said.........maybe in 15 years

  6. Not really, the UOR has been raised and the new sights are going out, have a search on here for more information, there was a large thread about it with the new sight and the picatinny rail
  7. And it will still be the A2,.....
  8. Everything?

    Weapons and radios have been a bit shonky, but for real procurement disasters look at Type 45 destroyers or the Eurofighter.

    The clothing is pretty good, you must admit. No longer neccessary to line Mr Silvermans pockets if you want to stay warm and dry.
  9. Yes it does, it has alot more modifications aswell, we had an 2 officers come in and show us all the new weapons at the beharry centre at catterick.
