A nice side note......
The equipment lists in the Twilight 2000 forum allows us to know the weight of those optional kits! The M65 jacket, the desert, winter kits, etc. The Project world can have moments when one can't use the vehicles and must be "LRRP's". Weight of the survival gear is critical for movement rates and fatigue. Metric weights are compatible!:)

Very useful I would think, everyone thinks they can load up like a pack mule and just go. But even ammunition has weight and must be accounted for. In a game once where a guy insisted he could carry 150 pounds easily on his back and walk several miles. Then I took him camping and loaded him up. I told him it was 150 of gear but it was only 80, he didn't even make it out of the parking lot.

The Viet era LRRPs knew the toothbrush handle weighs as much as a 7.62 NATO round! Enough modules like to separate teams from their vehicles, yet have a list of stuff with no weights. Kato already has a head start on me!
