  2. The great thing about this is that it only weighs "30 kilos, six less than at present, but which improve their detection and location systems as well as survival" So that when you add on anormal comabt load of 45 Kg you only have to carry 75kg. - result

    The bad thing is that the Spanish don't actually get their boots dirrty anywhere outside a volleyball court!
     
  3. And the discussion is?

  4. Same old b*llocks has been trotted out by many countrys. I would think the first casualty of a decent sized war will be civilian communications. Perhaps this article lost some facts in translation most of our english press in english in spain is shite.
     
  5. That is horrible, what did they do to him!?
     
  6. Will it work in Gibralter?
     
  7. Firthy, totally agree with you, especially about the English press in Spain.
    Maybe there will be a surprise election next year, hence propaganda.
    By the way, that bird above is the Spanish Defence Minister.
     
  8. IIRC Spain's economy is'nt at it's best at the moment so how & when do they propose to fund this project?
     
  9. As far as I can tell, half of the package is PRRs and night vision goggles. Really advanced, that.
     
  10. So, they can now download stuff, when they're all asleep between midday and 4.
     
  11. He's forgotten his skirt!
     
  12. The point is chaps porn on patrol
     
  13. Issue every soldier one,whatever country he fights for and hey presto world peace and soldiers with heavy squints and biceps the size of Popeye's
     
  14. I believe there ae 1500 of them in Afghanistan at the moment and think I read about another 300 paras being deployed? ISTR they have had about 20 casualties not counting the 60 odd that died in the air crash in Turkey on the way back home. But, still, mobile porn on patrol.....why complain?
