Whats this new bit of kit???

#1
While reading today's Current Bun I came across this article and photo. The soldier with the USG, WTF is all that kit on his helmet and by his ear??
The photo is better in the paper (Page 13) than this one, slightly enlarged and you can see it all clearly

Is this the new night vision goggles??? If so what is the other piece of kit by his left ear???

Bit on his lid looks like a PNG harness: the kit on his left ear is a PRR headset.

I Think that USG refers to UnderSlung Grenade ( Launcher ), rather than US Grunts or somesuch.

A WAH is a question that has an obvious answer. Thereby making anyone who answers the question look like a t**t. For example:

Looking at the photo.
Q. What's that he's holding in his hands?
A. A rifle.
Response. WAH!!!!.

Therefore, the question answerer has been Wah'd and so looks a t**t.

PS. I appreciate, of course, that I now may have been wah'd.

I thought he'd misspelt USNG (as in US National Guard). Personally, I'd say the stuff in his ear is the crewmans headset, but what do I know. Agreed on the PNG harness, though it could be from the blur a headtorch.

If it is a wah, then I'm in a 'not so secret' bunker near Ongar

Oh Dear, i just know in going to get grief for this one......

using the proword "No Wah"
definatly a monocular harness, (if you dont get one, the yanks are swapping 'em for slabs of stella if you ask nicely)

and as the pic is of a CVR(T) Spartan on a low loader, the bloke in the commanders hatch has got an ANR headset on, it velcro's over the issue helmet...............

It's a mounting bracket for HMNVG - Helmet Mounted Night Vison Goggles

A wah, or chad bite as we called them, is an hilarious way to stretch 6 months on ops somewhere. Better still, an expert can pull off a back bite to the original bite. ( eg to the original question of what is that in his hands, you deliberately give a chad answer, in a serious tone, like, it is his boot cleaning kit I think, to which he replies Wah, its a rifle knob, to which, oh you get it) A double bcak bite has been theorised, but I have not had any confirmed reports of it being carried off.

Like in "Twin Peaks" "What do you call the lady with the log in her arms,the one she talks to" the answer came-"We call her the LOG LADY"
