from the UK Telegraph:
British Troops in Afghanistan Given New Uniform
British troops serving in Afghanistan have been issued with a new-look camouflage - the first pattern change of its kind for more than 40 years.
Actually I'm more interested in what they've done to the SA-80 . . . I see they've adopted the ACOG 4X sight - that's GOT to be an improvement over that Cracker Jacks toy they originally had mounted . . . the 40mm grenade launcher looks suspiciously like it originated in the H&K factory I visited in Oberndorf . . . come to think of it the entire assault rifle package looks like the Wizards of Baden Württemberg worked it over - Sean Linnane
