Testing body armour

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. Good to watch, incredible that someone should attempt this ? Then again ... look around you ...

    7.62 short from approx 2-300m, first round strikes low/left, wonder where the next one's gonna strike ... the guy holding the plate is in the wrong job, the guy(s) spotting/filming are also taking the p**s surely.

    Someone please prove me wrong, but I think this is genuine (recent) footage ?
     
  2. And we have a darwin award waiting right here...

    For crying out loud! trying that with an M16 that you've zero'd, but an AK? THe way the camera man said "Oh S**t", was a calssic, like he never expected it to happen.
     
  3. Ak, with open sights? Bloody idiots...

    Targets do fall when hit......
     
  4. Targets SCREAM,when hit.
     
  5. J_D

    So is that the new NMT Test?
     
  6. That is by far and away the dumbest fcuking thing I have ever seen in my life. They clearly got the idea from the film Super Troopers, where they test the armoured jockstrap on the range.

    What a bunch of tools.

  8. I presume someone brought criminal charges?
     
  9. I beg to point out that the brain donors were americans and since I have not heard of any british troops trying out the ballistic capabilities of their armour. I cannot believe that they would be so stupid to do this. :lol:
     
  10. I dont think that the guys doing the shooting and holding the plate are septics, they wouldnt need an interpreter and speak in a foreign language if they were. Middle eastern maybe? Is that the old Inshallah in action?
    ie if my times not up then even if I stand 200m away from some dude in the standing unsupported with iron sights nothing can possibly go wrong!!! Scary.
     
  11. i doubt its real, and there doesnt seem much recoil on that AK, blanks perhaps?
     
  12. Just watched it - the first round impacts significantly low-left in the sand.

    Hell, forget his accuracy - the guy's wpn handling skills are awful: the first round he tries to fire goes "click", and after the 1st shot, he cöcks the wpn again.

    What A Bunch Of Tards.
     
  13. I saw the impact of the first round into the bank also, it would appear that they're playing for keeps. You also hear the voices pretty clearly- they're definitely septics, not Canucks or any other variety of colonial.

    What a fcukwit, but I guess this is what happens when they take your porn stash off you as soon as you land and you only have Bruce Willis singing songs on a USO tour to entertain you.
     
  14. Well yes, the film crew appear to be Septic's - but the guys with the armour and AK appear to be a.n.other, not sure where in numptyland tho...
