The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom (UK) or Britain, is a sovereign country in western Europe. Lying off the north-western coast of the European mainland, the United Kingdom includes the island of Great Britain, the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland and many smaller islands. Northern Ireland is the only part of the United Kingdom that shares a land border with another sovereign state‍—‌the Republic of Ireland. Apart from this land border, the United Kingdom is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, with the North Sea to its east, the English Channel to its south and the Celtic Sea to its south-south-west, giving it the 12th-longest coastline in the world. The Irish Sea lies between Great Britain and Ireland. With an area of 242,500 square kilometres (93,600 sq mi), the United Kingdom is the 78th-largest sovereign state in the world and the 11th-largest in Europe. It is also the 21st-most populous country, with an estimated 65.1 million inhabitants. Together, this makes it the fourth-most densely populated country in the European Union

The British Armed Forces or Her Majesty's Armed Forces are the military services which are tasked with defence of the United Kingdom, its overseas territories, and the Crown Dependencies. They also promote Britain's wider interests, support international peacekeeping efforts, and provide humanitarian aid.

The British Armed Forces consist of 3 Main Branches:

  • The British Army - Meeeeee
  • Naval Service (The Royal Navy and The Royal Marines)  - Shoutout to Blazer!
  • The Royal Airforce

The Headquarters of The British Armed forces is The Ministry of Defence, In London.

The Commander-in-Chief is Queen Elizabeth II (Our Queen As of 2017 - Expiry Date, Unknown)

This means that the Queen is the only person in the United Kingdom to formally declare war against other nations

Description: H&K (A German Company Based in Germany) Has improved the Design and Functions of The Original SA80/L85A1 To make a sack full of shit become a Sparckling Paradise to shoot.. The Accuracy is Great (I've compared it to the M4). Hopefully some people accept the fact that the SA80 Is no longer a Shit Weapon. It got improved by H&K by a fuck ton...
