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. It's not really speculation, it's already happening in some areas and has done for some time. CCA tours and the development of the MAG, plus greater links to US Army HQs all mean that approx 10% of tours exceed 6 months. I think it's a good idea and critically tours for those heading off to PB Isolated will remain 6 months and 2 weeks. It's also worth pointing out that comparisons with our US chums' tour lengths are inaccurate. The USMC 'do' 7 month tours - it's only really the US Army that kicks the arrse out of it with 12+ month tours although the R&R plan is somewhat better than ours! And most ARRSErs will be aware of the crazy sick USAF lunatic at KAF who was on a 3 year tour...
