Scope:
  • This article covers the 10″ Partial RIS IUR L119A2 which is familiar to most UKSF enthusiasts
  • It does not extend to 18 (UKSF) Signal Regiment’s FDE DuraCoat L119A2, or the Full RIS IUR version of the L119A2 used by other UKSF personnel
  • Differences between the Partial and Full RIS L119A2 IUR can be discerned here

The following tables represent my personal record of L119A2 parts and accessories, where:
  • Standard Items are those which I perceive as the default
  • Optional Items are those which I perceive as elective
  • Standard and Optional Items are those which I have positively identified (with greater than 90% certainty) in my reference images; often cross referenced with other documentary evidence and affidavits. To me they are therefore solidly legit
  • Unvalidated Items are also included in the tables. These have been identified in my images with a certainty greater than 75%, but less than 90%; and/or by affidavits. My assessment is that these items will eventually be backed up with greater than 90% certainty. Other items are rumoured but as yet don’t meet my threshold for inclusion
  • N.B. Please see further notes at the end of the article

Further Notes:
  • This is a living document which will adapt to new information. It will be updated without notice
  • The tables are not a tally of sighting frequency, nor do they record the cultural impact of any item in the UKSF clone or impression scenes
  • That said, as a general rule ‘Standard Items’ are the most ubiquitous
  • This article about blaster build doctrines may be of help to L119A2 builders in conjunction with these tables
