ABILITY TO EQUIP PRIVATE ARMY

Discussion in 'Weapons, Equipment & Rations' started by goatbagthedruid, Jul 17, 2005.

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. Just been trawling the web for stuff and cam across this company - Witham Specialist Vehicles.

    You can buy anything from here e.g.

    Aardvark flail mine clearance vehicle - http://www.witham-sv.com/infopage.php?ID=428&Overide=1

    AFV 432 - With or without tracks (not sure why without tracks) - http://www.witham-sv.com/infopage.php?ID=223&Overide=1

    Centurion BARV( Beach Armoured Recovery Vehicles) - url]http://www.witham-sv.com/infopage.php?ID=361&Overide=1[/url]

    Land Rover WIMIC type veh http://www.witham-sv.com/infopage.php?ID=418&Overide=1

    and even an FH70 - http://www.witham-sv.com/infopage.php?ID=224&Overide=1

    Questions:

    1. Why would anyone buy stuff like this?
    2. Is that why we have no kit?
    3. Any walts bought any stuff from there and want to own up?

    I know that a 432 is the backbone of the British A Veh fleet, but I don't think they are convenient for nipping to the shops or doing the school run.

    I think I need to get out more!

  2. You are a proper loser just for even finding a site like this, get a life try to find something else to occupy your benial existence less for work, you should stick to your goat bestial porn sites
     
  3. I have to admit always fancied one of those army motorcycles probably as never been allowed to have a go on one normaly as mt staff have broken them all by first week of camp .
     
  4. Hi
    I bought a 3/4 ton sankey trailer off them, cost £150, bit rusty, and past it's sell by date, I use it behind my discovery to take rubbish to the tip. Can't really see how this makes me a walt though.
    I could have bought a small camping trailer which would have cost me more, and looks silly behind a big car.
    The trailer is pretty much indestructable.
    When I was there, some guys were buying a monster cement mixer, they tried to hitch it up to a transit flat bed, they had to buy a NATO hitch and in the end the nose of the trailer was about 10cm off the ground, I bet that was fun on the A1.
    But I wandered around the site and was amazed at what the army cast's these days. I had a drive in a Hagglunds, which was a brilliant bit of kit, but I would have trouble justifying something like that, unless I worked on a hilly farm somewhere.
    The FH70's are deactivated, they must have had 10 when I was there, why would you want a deactivated gun? I could understand a FV432 as they are used for these corporate fun day beano things.
    They do sell a lot of Land rovers, which is understandable I suppose.

  5. Arent the Landy's from a cancelled Zimbawean order? (we cancelled it, Not the Zims, I beleive!)

    Or maybe they are the ones the Navy bought for the RM, then realised that they cant take petrol engined vehicles onboard HM Ships because of the Fire Risk! Doh!
