otooley ------ I believe that you will find that these are the new design composite blades along the lines of what were developed for the PAV/LOW and new Cobra.


Considering the built-up areas the German Army frequents. that would explain the tapered edges also.......to quiet them down a bit They're also supposed to be substantially lighter also.


YOU give me a call, you 'ol crud. :D
