The Soldiers Load
Scroll down the contents, and click on "The Soldiers Load" (PDF). A good write-up on how soldiers are carrying too much weight. opswarfare especially likes the portion where the individual weights are added up. It could come in useful for commanders to do some calculations to help tailor the weight carried to mission requirements. It would be great if the article could look at a section, or platoon, and compare the different weights carried, e.g. between a rifleman, a signaller, a medic, and a 84mm firer, etc.
