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.  
  2. They're no SNATCH, are they?
     
  3. Shame none of them have been declared 'fully fit'

  6. The foxhound has 1 key design flaw! The front doors open at front ie eh with hinges to the rear. Therefore giving driver and front passenger/ commander good cover from the rear! Me however, I'd rather that protection to the front as we should be facing our enemies
     
  7. Yes it's a shame that we don't have a specialist driver trade somewhere within the Army that could be the SME and therfore know what is required when a new vehicle comes into service, ensuring training packages and operating procedures are in place so that everything runs efficiently.

    And it's a shame that there aren't several thousand of them!
     
  8. Is that you volunteering for another tour?
     
  9. After this one? Not likely, civ div for me!
    Speaking of Foxhounds, they really do look good rallying round Bastion at the moment, it may actually venture out soon!
