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. Their navy has also been making friends in and around the Gulf of Guinea since there's a fair bit of oil to be found in the area. Granted we're not talking Saudi Arabian quantities but still a respectable amount and has the add advantages of being high quality, offshore and not in the Middle East. They're meant to be seriously looking at building a naval base in Sao Tome although I've got now idea how far they ever moved ahead with the idea. They have been helping out with some funding for their military and sending in the Seabees to do some construction work to allow the Sao Tome coast guard to fully operate again so I wouldn't bet against some sort of base being built in the future.
