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. Interesting that OPSEC seems to be taking a back seat for this chap when all other Apache aircrew seem to be treated in the same way as special forces in terms of identity etc.
     
  2. "The Apache had not been deployed when I retired so there is an itch yet to scratch," he said.

    That's the bit has me concerned, the Apache is such a specialist aircraft.

    Ed Macy in his book "Apache" goes into some detail on the training and difficulty of becoming an Apache crew.
