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. I'm just wondering, what are the names for the L115A3 and L121A1?

    I say this, in reference to say, the L85A2 being Rifle, 5.56, L85A2. (Or something along those lines)

    Many thanks
