Armed to the teeth with the latest in technology, this is the new face of the British soldier.
武裝到牙齒以最新的技術,這是英國士兵的新面貌。
And if he looks a little familiar, it's probably because you've seen something very similar in the Star Wars movies.
和如果他看來有點眼熟,它可能是因為你已看過一些很類似星球大戰電影的東西。
Gone is the old style 'pudding-bowl' helmet. In its place is one which features ear protection to shield the user from loud bangs and a mouthguard - yet also allows human voices to be heard clearly, and comes with side-mounted torches to assist in night operations.
舊式'布丁碗'頭盔已成過去,取而代之的是一款有保護用者耳朵以防響亮爆炸和護齒功能的 - 但亦讓人類的聲音聽得很清楚的,並配有側裝式火把以協助在夜間的行動。
The helmet, currently under trial, forms part of what the MoD calls FIST - Future Integrated Soldier Technology - and is part of a £1billion-a-year programme to update battlefield equipment.
目前正在試驗中的頭盔,是那國防部稱為拳頭 的一部分- 未來綜合士兵科技 - 和是一項一年10億英鎊計劃的一部分以更新戰場裝備。

The rest of the kit, as worn by a soldier from the Royal Anglian Regiment, is already in use and features camouflage specifically created for the conditions of Afghanistan.

It replaces two previous designs - a 40-year-old four-colour combination better suited to European woodland conditions and a lighter pattern for the desert.
The soldier holds the first all-new combat rifle used by the Army for 20 years.

The Lewis Sharpshooter is semi-automatic and said to be accurate up to 2,500ft - ideal for mountain warfare.
The SA80, standard issue since 1976, uses lighter rounds which were found to lose effectiveness at distances of more than 1,000ft.
