    Abstract:
    One overriding impression from the conference, is that the infantry soldier of today is invariably, carrying too much weight of equipment. As a result, mobility and freedom of manoeuvre is impaired, or compromised. Strength and physical fitness can help mitigate the effect of the weight burden; however, adverse terrain or climate can easily tip the scales to the point where physical exhaustion degrades performance. Weight reduction is, therefore, a key factor on the mind of everyone who studies the equipment and effectiveness of the modern infantryman.
