British Military General Service Respirator

The General Service Respirator (GSR) has been developed to provide the UK Armed Forces with the highest levels of respiratory and ocular protection against chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear threats. GSR offers previously unprecedented levels of protection and significantly reduces physiological and psychological burden experienced by the user thanks to features such as an increased field of view, reduced breathing resistance and improved drinking system. GSR will be personal issue for all Service Personnel, together with entitled civilians and others closely allied with the Armed Forces such as the Royal Fleet Auxiliary.

  • Had to come all the way to Australia to trial the extreme heat. BS it was just a piss up trip for the British troops no doubt.

    And since when does the Navy get gassed?

    • Comment of user 'DFW1990' has been deleted by author (after account deletion)!
  • As an Australian subject to Bush Fires I'm especially interested in masks that block Carbon Monoxide. CO has been fatal in a number of stay-and-defend instances.

    This mask doesn't meet that requirement.

    I'm left with "Breathing Apparatus" (BA) used by firemen that have an independent supply of air, or some adaptation of an aqualung.

    I'd guess that military deployments should be very careful of CO from burning vehicles and burning buildings.

    • @DEADBEEF
      truth,you can only use this mask when there is enough oxygen available,not suitable for fires

    • @DEADBEEF To be fair, it wasn't designed with fires in mind. CBRN ;)

    • @NECKSHOT

      Fires generally don't take all the Oxygen but they do generate Carbon Monoxide (CO)

      Something to filter Carbon Monoxide would be good.

      We have in Australia recent deaths of people who stayed in a fire bunker during bushfires who died from CO poisoning rather than loss of Oxygen.
