The US army has loads more better things than the British army first of all the most important thing is there standard rifle!
They get a M16 Rifle what is cool and very good wereas the british army get a lousy cheap L98 or what eva its called WHY? why doesnt the british get the M16???
And the US get like HUM V's wereas we get like 60 yr old shit on wheels!

You Sir, are an arrse.

The individual kit issue now being delivered to soldiers is first rate. i have just been given my ops pack and it is fantastic. In addition, a M16 is not the be all and end all of rifles. As someone who is yet to join, perhaps a little experience may help prior to casting judgement.

If all you are interested in for joing is getting "Gucci" kit, then you are in the wrong job sunshine.

Grow Up, get some time and keep yer trap shut.

The above statement will see you well in training too.

I also add, learn to write and express yourself properly prior to adding more drivel to your posts rather than speaking in "chav".
 
#4
chav? haha how did you work that one out?

Seriously now is the British army going to be supplied with the m16 Rifle or is it going to be sticking with the one they have now?

I have caught myself in a rant so I will finish it off.

In reference to the HUMVEE question, I can personally tell you from experience that the Land Rover, whilst older is a very good piece of equipment. It is also due to be replaced by an even better piece of equipment (the name escapes me). HUMVEEs are not as reliable or as agile as you may think.

Brilliant – another illiterate mong with an opinion on something he knows nothing about.

You’re not Welsh by any chance?

HM Armed Forces will continue to be supplied with the L85A2 rifle for the forseeable future, to answer your question.

Im not trying to pick a fight here im just telling you what i think and asked some questions. because i went to my Army office and even asked them in Liverpool and they said the British army has just picked the cheapest weapon and upgraded it, why dont we just get the M16 Rifle or is it to expensive for us?
 
#9
what have you based you opinions on? how do you actually know the M16 is 'cooler' than the SA80 in use. i trust you have fired both?? www

The M16 is a 50 year old weapon, that is teribly unreliable. Land Rovers can go a few miles without needing refueling.

And I think your a walt, the L85A2 is one of the most acurate weapons.

Iv'e fired my uncles M16 in California and Ive fired the L85A2 rifle while was in the Army kadets haha i know its not the army but iv'e still fired one. compared them both the M16 didn't jam as much as the L85A2 rifle, also i felt more comfatable while holding and firing the rifle

Unisole, you seem to have little to no experience on which to base your views. Whereas a lot of people on here have extensive experience to back up theirs. Which is why you are going to lose.

-Edit (Just seen last post)

A2s in Cadets? Also, the SA80 is nicely balanced, the M16 seems front heavy to me. Oh well, just my view.

Every bit of kit in the British army, the American army, and any other organisation you can think of were made by the lowest bidder.

No one likes spending money :wink:

Humvee is no where near as good as the movies would have you think and the M16 is very long cumbersome weapon in comparison and i have not had any troubles with the SA80 since i was issued with the A2. And from what i saw from the americans in iraq they're cefo is fairly crap, although as someone with knackered knees those kneepads look good

Unisole.

Have you ever seen a Hummvee, Landrover or Pinzgauer, let alone been in one or driven one?
Have you ever seen an M16 or an L85A2, let alone fired one.

No, what a surprise! If you like the Americans so much then why don't you take your immature and misguided ideas and join them. Or shut up, join up, get some experience and then comment with some real life experience; instead of what you have learnt from your Playstation or Airsoft.

By the way nice first post. I suggest you foxtrot oscar and come back with a new username and some educated views.

We didn't 'pick' the rifle. It isn't an 'off the shelf' jobby. The British have been playing around with this design since the early fifties when it was designated the EM2. The reason we decided to purchase the SA80 is because we make it and the money spent will be invested back into our own country. The A2 rifle is fine if you ask me. A little heavy for an assault rifle but better then some on the market. A rifle doesn't make a professional army anyway!

This is off the subject now, you know the Royal Marines are the Navys army, well is it the same with the USMC are they the US navys army, or is it different with the US Marines?
