I know - I'm watching the clip, and waiting for the finished mod.

Actually, some of the precursors to the SA80 series must have been around in '82... and I seem to recall reading somewhere that a unit was issued prototype SA80IW (before the L85 designation was adopted) at one point during the Falklands war. Pretty please? ;D

SA80 was introduced to the British Army in 1985.. 3 years after the Falklands War m8

However.. Deployment was supposed to start in 1980 to replace the L1A1 SLR but the when the Falklands kicked off they stuck with the L1A1 which is a tried and tested weapon....And sadly the biggest mistake we ever made...  ::)

I've never heard anythign to suggest that it was used at all during the conflict....If anyone was to have used it, it would have been special forces, but SAS used M16/M203's & Colt Commandos and the SBS used AR15's..

I know it wasn't introduced until '85, but  there were prototypes around before that, and I read somewhere that one or two units had them to try during the war. Back in the days of squeezable receivers, if you recall... ;D

Oh, and the SAS used SLRs as well as the M16 series.

Only if they had to.....Have you ever known the SAS to use a standardised British weapon?  ;D

Heh, you have a point. But they have always been very fond of both the SLR and the Gimpy. And they did like the Sterling.

great work on the harrier (the beta one i love it ;D)
just wondering whether you are (or you would be able to) make an internal script on it that if you ejected the fuel pods, and dependant on how much fuel you have when you eject them, they explode when hitting the ground , i have no idea how this could be done (well maybe camcreating an tank shell or something for the explosion bit) but you guys probably do
