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. no longer listed
  2. Look at withams.
  3. Look at their prices for something that has been sat in a field for a year or more
  4. Haggle over the price. Brand new cars can sit in fields.
  5. Excellent cabbies these things.

    I wonder what the fuel consumption is though ?
  6. Odd eBay says that auction ain't viewable on my iPhone. No MacBook at hand in the smallest room and memsahib is snoring in her pit.
  7. The FV432 is the armoured personnel carrier variant of the British Army's FV430 series of armoured fighting vehicles. Since its introduction in the 1960s it has been the most common variant, being used for transporting infantry on the battlefield. In the 1980s, almost 2,500 vehicles were in use, with around 1,500 now remaining in operation - mostly in supporting arms rather than front-line infantry service.

    Although the FV432 Series was to have been phased out of service in favour of newer vehicles such as the Warrior and the CVR(T) series, they are now gradually being upgraded to extend their service through into the next decade.

    In light of the army's need for additional armoured vehicles in the Afghan and Iraqi theatres, the Ministry of Defence announced in August 2006 that an extra 70 vehicles would be upgraded by BAE Systems in addition to 54 already ordered as part of their force protection initiative. The improvements take the form of an engine upgrade, new steering unit, and new braking system as well as improving armour protection to a level similar to that of the Warrior. The concept is that these FV430s will free up the Warrior vehicles for reserve firepower status and/or rotation out of theatre. The Updated version is to be called the "Bulldog".
  8. milweb, there is plenty of um, and cheap.
  9. Be careful that any 432 or abbot that is for sale, has not been serviced by 11 inf w/shops minden, because at least 1 friday afternoon per month they were raced around the camp circuit by sgts Pierce and Daley( Paddy not Arfur)after copious amounts of herforder had been consumed at lunch, hot track blocks and cobbles make an interesting projectile when thrown up a skidding abbot, 66/67 were wonderful years to be in FRG
