    What decides what rifle you will use on exercise and operation. I understand that there will be a certain amount of each weapon in each troop eg 10 SA80,s, 2 equipped with grenade launchers, 3 Minimis (i understand these are no longer in use) 1 sniper and 3 Sharpshoters and one equipped with a combat shotgun(these are not accurate ratios)
    i understand sniper is a specialisation but what about the LMG and sharpshooter and combat shotgun do extra courses on top of initial RT need to be taken to be issued these or is it more of a case of an individual could be issued different weapons in each deployment.
