The British Army in 2300

#2
someone has far too much time on their hands

Wishful thinking! Liked the bit about Fusiliers being 4 battalions again.

Royal Anglian recruited from the Midlands only? What about their Sussex and Essex trappings?
 
#5
Do you think bowman will be working?

Looks like some sort of roleplaying/wargaming group. I never cease to be amazed at the amount of effort and care put into these sorts of thing but it looks like they've really spent lots of time researching and thinking about their stuff.
This is probably one of the few "future universes" I've ever read about that isn't dominated by the Americans and as such is mildly interesting. It kind of reminds me of the Honor Harrington books though.

SCL F23 Brownsnake 150-MW Laser Machinegun
Designed as the replacement to the highly popular F21 9-mm machinegun the F23 has an impressive reputation to live up to. Those few units that have been issued the F23 are more than satisfied with its firepower, ease of use and portability and it is seen as a more than adequate replacement for one of the finest Australian support weapons. Due to production and financing delays the F23 has only entered service with selected Assault Trooper sections in the Armoured Squadrons and the Special Air Service Regiment
So in 2300 UKSF will be wielding "Brownsnakes" 8O

Could get messy.

Honor Harrington bloody brilliant, the Brits in 4000 years time, tangling with thinly disguised Frenchies and facing down cowards and tyrants across the galaxy.

She looks pretty fit on her book covers to.............

Royal German Legion

The Royal German Legion (RGL) is an integral and somewhat controversial part of the British Army that provides manning for a strong armoured brigade group. The RGL, as its named suggests, is mostly recruited from the German states but also includes recruits from throughout Europe and further a field. Some native UK citizens are also found in its ranks, normally seconded from other regiments.
Oh dear....

That's an obvious reference to the Kings German Legion that contained some of the most effective British units of the Napoleonic period.

The site is a wholly derivative idea but an interesting way to pass half an hour when one should be working. Other "inspirations" are obviously the dreadfull Space Above and Beyond TV series which featured US Marines fighting aliens in Earth colonies and the Heavy Gear PC games.
One thing that puzzled me is that if the army can have "anti-grav" hover tanks why do the starships need rotating sections to provide artificial gravity?

Maybe the power needed to make a tank hover is much less than that needed to provide grav to the starship. it may be more economical to provide natural gravity in the startship with a rotating hull. Different soultion for a different scale of problem.

I know I am going to regret this, but.....

This is a site about a late 80's game called 2300AD oddly enough.

It was set in a post ww3 enviroment in which the French had sat things out while UK/ US and German forces fought it out with the USSR.

Fas forward 300 years and the world has got istself back on its feet and got into space.

Still its a nice idea that the UK would have an orbat of mor than one man and a dog by that time.

I'll get my anorak :oops:

British army in 2300!.

There won't be a Britain, so how can they have an army? We will be given a 'large' regiment which covers the 'counties' (including Scotland, Wales, England & Ulster) with 1 battalion and 1 TA (never to be used) battalion.

Still the NAAFI always closes at 2300 - Canteen Cowboy, clear the bar.
