SA80 in Helmand Province, Afghanistan

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by armchair_jihad, Sep 12, 2006.

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. Given that the British Army Rifle is getting the ultimate road test out in Helmand I was simply wondering if anybody had heard how its performing. This is not a bashing thread, I just want to know.
  2. In the total absence of reports in the press to the contrary, I'd say it seems to be doing fine - or is it all just censored out again?
  3. Believe me, if there were any problems with the A2, the pages of Arrse would be awash with angry posts about it - you only have to look at the Bowman thread for proof of that.

    The reliability of the A2 is old news - it's been more than proven on Ops over the last few years.
  4. Well I am glad to hear that, I really am.
  5. I can't see the A2 causing any problems there that it hasn't already caused in Iraq.
