a quick look on wiki (i know its not overly reliable) but it says the rifles use them also the signals seem to use them. I think if we could get someone to model it, it could be a nice little asset for the brits. Seeing as they are apparently being used now in afgan.

Specific regiments I couldn't tell you. I only know that "mechanised infantry" use the Bulldog in their line units and "armoured infantry" use the Warrior. If armoured infantry battalions have integral mortar units, then Bulldog mortar carriers are probably in them alongside Warrior IFVs.

Kinda off topic but what do all those names mean? Rilfes, singals or w.e you guys use over there. How does all that break down and in what branch.

The British Army still uses the Ragimental structure, which many nations no longer use. Here is a basic list of the Corps and Regiments which make up the main bulk of the army.

Corps & Regiments - British Army Website

Each of those Regiments and Corps can be broken down further for example the infantry The Infantry - British Army Website has Regiments which are broken down into Batallions, 1st Batallion The Rifles = 1 Rifles. 2nd Batallion The Rifles = 2 Rifles etc etc

Taken from the British Army page on the Bulldog: FV430 Series & Bulldog - British Army Website

"Mechanised Infantry use the Bulldog APC as a form of protected mobility to move around the battlefield."

Definition of Mechanised Infantry -
Mechanised infantry are equipped with the Saxon armoured personnel carrier, a wheeled vehicle that can be deployed over rough terrain, but is primarily a road vehicle. Saxon is in the process of being replaced by the Bulldog tracked vehicle.

Mechanised Infantry Battalions:
4 Rifles
1 Royal Anglian
1 Lancashire

Taken from the British Army page on the Warrior: Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicle - British Army Website

"The Warrior (WR) family of 7 variants of armoured vehicles entered service in 1988 and have proved a resounding success for Armoured Infantry (AI) battlegroups (BG) in the Gulf War, Bosnia and Kosovo and Iraq."

Definition of Armoured Infantry -
Armoured infantry are equipped with the Warrior armoured personnel carrier, a tracked vehicle that can deploy over all terrain.

Armoured Infantry Battalions:
1 Scots Guards
1 Royal Regiment Fusiliers
3 Yorkshire
4 Scots (The Highlanders)
3 Mercian
5 Rifles
1 Princess of Wales Regiment

Bit of research goes a long way...
