Now If We Put That There Then It Might Fit


Fancy a challenge?

Take 7 fully grown soldiers.
7 sets of webbing and 7 rifles
3 anti-tank missiles
9 sleeping bags
9 soldiers' spare clothes, washing kit and bits and bobs
4 days worth of food and water for 10 soldiers
lots and lots of bits and pieces

And fit it all into a compartent smaller than Mini Cooper.

We were packing for our first exercise with Warrior. Apparently it all fitted.

If you really want to you can have look at the inside of a Warrior you can do here.

You soldiers do like your webbing, I've noticed. Does it have any unofficial uses? I remember getting trapped in it in obstacle courses at school.

Only 3999 photos left, US - lovely present for the missis.

Ooh! This sounds like a fun game! Do the soldiers have to be in one piece?

Katy - I could tell you but then I'd have to kill you. Who bought a photo?

Jamie - to start off with - the Warrior has a nasty habit of removing fingers itself but I'll get to that.

That's beautiful packing. Are you sure it was done by men? No offence.

Perhaps it was a competition like how many soldiers you can fit in a mini.

Hey just wanted to pop by and say, you've got a great blog, it's really good, fun and entertaining. All the best, Josh.

Mmmmmm...the warrior is nice, yeah, but that scimitar is sexy. I don't suppose it's realistic, though, to consider one parked in front of the house. I bet the insurance is horrendous. :-)

*mumbles* The other one is on my mantlepiece.

PI - not just one man!

Greavsie - the beauty is that you're that tightly packed that you can't move.

Savante - we'd probably be able to break the world record now.

Josh - thanks.

Jessica - oh yes - the Scimitar has much nicer lines. I reckon you'd only need third party insurance but changing a tyre is a pain in the neck.

Katy - I reckon a sample copy on your blog would shift the other 3999.
