Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Video

    Interesting video of a 1 Royal Anglian patrol where they're engaged by a sniper and then a larger firefight ensues. Theres one bloke on there carrying a sniper rifle and a Javelin who has his face pixellated, and yet no one else does, hmmm...

    Maybe he dosen't want the publicity being splashed all over the net?
  3. Could well be!
  4. Maybe he's pixel-man?

    Nah he's Andy McNab - it's been known for years
  6. Or it could be that snipers are treated the same by the media ops rules as SF.
    At a recent PR shoot with the sun all but 1 of the snipers were not allowed to be photographed.

    Still, doesnt explain why the jock lad got plastered all over the press recently.
  7. Just to show how much of a "laser" I am when it comes to faces, but the Lance Jack on that video is the same lad who got interviewed by Ross Kemp on his first Aghan gig as a crow who was fresh into theatre. Obviously coming along leaps and bounds.
  8. Anybody else notice the one guy was carrying a sniper rifle and a Minimi?
  9. The more I hear and see The Royal Anglians, the more I think they are the dogs danglies. They have certainly earnt their battle honours in Afghanistan, top work fellas!
  10. "Sniper".


    It never ceases to amaze me how ONE idiot with a rifle taking pot shots at an element, no matter how ineffective, is deemed worthy of the moniker "sniper".

    You can tell when a "sniper" is around because dudes are getting shot....with one round.
  11. I've missed a few when on COD 2 with the sniper rifle, fired from the hip. Easy mistaka to make'a.
  12. We are of course fecking brilliant!!!!!

    I think it was a moderator... Mind you, it won't get rid of much of the sound from a .338 or .308, but it will make it a bit more pleasant for the people next to him when he does shoot.
