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. Can anyone help here; trying to find information / images for an ALM 90 Recce Vehicle. Have tried google to no avail.

    Ta
     
  2. Nice one!!! Ta very much
     
  3. Dunno what's up with your Google then matey:

    Google Image Search results

    The third one in is a recognition site with loads of details and recognition points...
     
  4. What do you need to know?

    I worked on AML-60s a bit, but other than the cannon, should be close enough.

  5. The Cambrian Patrol teams were given a list of equipments to learn. A few have typos or someone needs a word - not sure which. ALM 90 was one of them, and quite rightly TT told him it is AML 90. Had a few calls about that one.
     
  6. That's exactly what it's for, engee. Have had to compile a photolist of the vehicles, weapons & mines as a bit of homework :D
     
  7. We produced the booklets for RSA and ATR (P).
     
  8. Used by Sudan and Zimbabwe, so any ideas why this was chosen :wink:
     
  9. I couldn't begin to imagine. Go on then, give us a clue!

    Edited to add: Just realised why it's been included. It's French! We're going to invade again. Yipee!
     
  10. Is that before or after the other two?
     
  11. Before obviously, let's get the easy one out of the way first.
     
  12. It's also the most heavily armed AFV in the Irish army. You got plans we should know about?

    If you're really in San Diego, come up to San Francisco. There's an Eland-90 (AML-90 built under license in South Africa) in the Littlefield museum up here.
