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. My limited understanding of the Royal Artillery leads me to believe that we have no in service Man Portable Air Defence. Would I be right in saying that HVM and RAPIER are the only GBAD in service? Or can HVM be fired a la SA-7?.
     
  2. Not a cloadpuncher but yes HVM can be fired hand held (unless someone wishes to contracdict)

  3. can be fired hand held either in a single module (bloody heavy after a while) , or as the pic above shows in a module of 3 with a stand to support it.
