I have to digress.... but it is historical


In Aussie we could never call anything in the Army Ajax as Ajax, FAB and OMO were all clothes washing powders and had very alternate meanings.


legend says the Army wives would use these boxes as a code signal:


- AJAX = Army Jerk Away on eXercise

- OMO = Old Man Out

- FAB = F'ing A'le Back

Warrior was discounted as a replacement coz it was too big... Quite how a multi billion pound procurement ends up with something heavier Im not sure!!! However, it is what it is now...
