Well, I totally agree that the A2 is an awsome weapon and has indeed come of age but when I read that it needed a few tweeks I started spitting blood at my computer screen. Here is an extract of the unbelievable shite that comes from the propoganda machine. The battlefield mission for SA80-A1 at its introduction into service was based on fighting in the temperate climates of north west Europe. "And it fulfilled the battlefield mission of the time," said the spokesman. "It wasn't envisaged that troops would be deployed in combat conditions to the deserts of Iraq." What! 10 rounds then stoppage, oh, oh! Bayonet throught he eye from Boris! Or collapsed magazine, or what was that, has anyone seen a gas plug. What a load of toss.
