@TAS,

This. You have won all of the weaponised Jammie dodgers. All of them.

@Boss,

Have you measured Jackal 2 for it yet, or do we just plan to stick it on that Chenowth buggy RT keeps in the back of his garage, rubbing it lovingly with a clean cloth nappy and telling bedtime stories about the foreword edge of the battle area?

Cobra is an inexpensive bit of kit. I saw some pricing for a tender process I was running and was pleasantly surpassed. Certainly compared favourable to the like of TopLite.

Agreed Husky equipped with this radar / observation kit plus a laser designator like the one below would make the perfect vehicle for forward air controllers and Artillery Observers.

ok it is not man portable but it is a lot more capable the MSTAR we currently use for the same job.

, I thought all the weponised “biscuits, contributors for the use of” were lost in the great Stealth Biscuit Tin debacle of 2012? Unless someone has finally used radio interferometry to find the bl***y thing, now!
