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. What is that mirror for?
     
  2. must be a bugger to shoot accurately
     
  3. It`s for reflecting the sunlight into the enemies eyes, thus rendering them harmless, so you can shoot them at your leisure. Bloody clever those Arabs.
     
  4. The Mirror is either MK1 Arab cloaking device or a flat screen TV to put his score up on.
     

  5. So you can check your hair whilst blasting away, wouldn't want to get scope eye off that!
     
  6. Beard trimming emergencies.
     
  7. No different to SUSAT on .50 or GPMG is it?
     
  8. Indeed I've seen .50 machine guns with ACOG, a sensible idea really given you're potentially engaging out to far greater ranges than with a personal weapon and you have optics on that.

    **** knows about the mirror though, some misguided attempt to reduce/displace muzzle flash maybe? Or an attempt at concealment.

    Big mirror to see round corners before you and your mates stand up at the end of a shooting gallery to set your great big machine gun up?
     
  10. It's the ultimate camouflage. When a sniper takes aim he goes: "ah, that's just me!" and looks for another target.
