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. Can anyone ID this piece of equipment ?

    I'm inclined to think its some sort of arm brace but I suppose it could be a ninja sword chucking device with can opener

  2. He's a Cyborg mate.
  3. Seriously now, I once saw a docu about this kind of thing, it allows the soldier to carry more weight without stressing the body.
  4. Well done that man.
  5. Strange picture, US Army digi-cam(?) and UK PLCE and Weapon.

  6. Chappie on attachment apparently
  7. If he needs to wear one of those things shouldnt be running around with rifle and webbing imho.A brilliant bit of kit but it is designed to help you heal.Either he is an idiot or his commander is .
  8. Seems to be a knee brace, I have often seen older trials bike riders wear them off road, after standing on the pegs for a few hours, I suppose they must relieve stress on the joints.
