    Rubbish. The L85A1 was first issued to the Brigade of Guards, line infantry units, the Parachaute Regiment and the Royal Marines. The SUSAT was (and still is) issued to 'Combat Arms' (with the general exception of the Royal Armoured Corps - although their Recce Troops receive them).

    Combat Support and Combat Service Support arms retained the L1A1 and the Stirling for longer, before receiving the L85 with irion sights (a few SUSATs are provided for familiarisation and training only).

    Line units keep the iron sight as a backup in the gunner's spare parts wallett (or should). It is also used in the jungle (and as a matter of sub-unit choice) in other areas where an optical sight has a tendancy to steam up.

    So what are you saying Royal?
    The fighting troops on the front lines use the scopes, except in Jungles, while the REMFs use the Iron sights?

    So the weapons being assault rifles have scopes, except in Jungle, and the weapons being SMGs have iron sights. (My brother made a similar switch from Sterlings to Steyrs... he certainly prefers the latter...)

    well, seeing as it says favorite weapon, not gun, id have to say the F-15E Strike Eage... Fast, good turning radius. HEAVY load and awesome radar system.

    As far as gun, id say the M-4SOPMOD.

    What about the Predator triangle laser sight rocket launcher thing. That was bad-ass.
    Of course Arnold did end up kicking Predator's ass with a swinging spikey log mkIV mod 0

    Basically yes. Although I wouldn't use the term remfs for the Combat Support units.

    No. The L85A1/A2 is not an SMG. It is an assualt rifle with or without scope. The only SMG currently in service with UK armed forces is the HK MP5 family.

    "Basically yes. Although I wouldn't use the term remfs for the Combat Support units. "

    Rear Echelon Military Forces actually is the correct description for Combat support units. Though I realise the unofficial stereotype is Rear Echelon Mothr fkers.

    "No. The L85A1/A2 is not an SMG. It is an assualt rifle with or without scope. The only SMG currently in service with UK armed forces is the HK MP5 family."

    I meant it is used as a SMG. Ie at close range on full auto in self defence. Their primary role is not to shoot the enemy, but to do whatever their job is... like drive a truck or something. (The short sight base of the iron sights wouldn't be that good for long range shooting anyway).
