The Ministry of Defense has been found to have gaping holes in its record
keeping systems with £6.6bn in inventoried military equipment, missing.
The National Audit Office has refused to sign off on the MoD’s accounts

The misplaced stock includes machine guns, night vision goggles, encrypted
radios, body armour along with £350m worth of fighting vehicles.
An internal audit has begun aimed at overhauling the internal management

office’s figure was an `extrapolation’.
