Join the Army and you'll find out.

Edited to add: Lovely user name. If you fail the entrants tests will you call yourself British civilian?

Judging by the rest of your posts, you would have got the Charlie G a few years ago.

The LSW is ment to go to the most compitant rifle man in the section, due to the higher rate of fire supplied by it, 30 rounds per min normal rate of fire compaired to 10 for the rifle, and 60 rounds per min for rapid compaired to 30 for the rifle.

As for the GPMG god knows ours are all attatched to our Spartans and 43's.

The rest of the weapons in your list for us Engineers are issued on deployment dependant on the role we are doing...

We had minimi out on Telic 5 when i was with Recce Troop in 21.

I'm guessing, but I reckon you will be issued with a stick. Not a sharp one, just a small stick.

Usually given to the prick of the section. My guess is you would have carried it for years.
Ah the useless Charlie G, what a load of scrap metal that is. When we done inter pln and sect competitions carrying those things we used to put a broom handle through it and two blokes carried it easy enough. With about half a mile to go, bin the broom handle.

BT. :thumright:

Ahh the charlie G, had that when in assault troop, as assault troop was rather undermanned at the time, had the choice of charlie G or the bren to carry, with first choice being the G second choice also being the Charlie G.

I hated the thing, fired it once and hated it more, ranks in top 3 of naff kit to lumber a squaddie with.
