Check out this in-box review of Arkebuza Model Art latest figure titled "Modern British Soldier #2, Afghanistan 2010" by Mario Matijasic. This is turning out to be a great figure set filling a large need for quality resin British armed forces figures in 1/35 scale. Hopefully more will come soon!

Impressive review with all the designations. In addition there is MK6 helmet.

I've found this link about british body armor.

Mario thank you for the nice review! I am waiting the two figures tomorrow! Ordered from a-z models! I have only one question: I can see in both figures 3 weapon accessories and i can recognize the tactical grip for the hand and the optical sight. But i cannot recognize the third small part? What is it and where is it supposed to be placed?

This is LLM01 (Laser Light Module 01). It is a target acquisition module: tactical flashlight, visible red laser sight, infrared pointer, and infrared illuminator... all in one device. It is mounted to Picatinny rail as other laser targeting systems (AN/PEQs for instance).
