Another reason not to join the navy

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. Clucking bell!
  2. They will need a few rolls of Black and Nasty to conduct BDR on that then.
  3. I think maybe some paracord and green string will also need to be idented for.
  4. Many years ago I thought of joining the navy........glad I waited :lol:

  5. I'm amazed most of the ship is still floating after that!!!
  6. Having always thought that a torpedo punches a neat little hole into the side of a tin can and it slowly rolls over starboard with all hands calmly embarking into the Rafts, I can quite categorically say "Fook that"

    A sixty ton fast mover might not have a better chance, but like I said, "Fook that".... did I mention "Right off" as well?
  7. another one here who's now glad the army gradually persuaded her away from the navy!!

    Mind, it'd be quite good fun to be the one firing that at random sh!t...
  8. After watching that I think I'll just stick to watching the grey funnel line from the shore. 8O
  9. That is what a heavyweight torpedo will do!
  10. The modern torpedo explodes underneath the ship and the force of the water rushing upwards from the explosion breaks the ship's keel, ripping the ship in half. It then sinks fast.

    As opposed to your old gentlemanly torpedos which blew a hole in the side allowing water to rush in and slowly sink the ship.
