British Military built replacement Invincible in Falklands!

Discussion in 'Falkland Islands (Op CORPORATE)' started by stoatman, Aug 10, 2005.

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. According to some right-wing nutter Argie site, the Argies sank the Invincible in 1982, disguised Illustrious or Ark Royal (entered service in 1985)to replace it, hushed up the deaths of all the sailors, then constructed a secret shipyard in the Falklands to construct a new Invincible, which none of the Brits or the Islanders knew about, only the Argies.

    Also, Maggie planned to nuke Buenos Aires or somewhere, and a the following gurkhas died in the Falklands (what their names actually mean appears after them):

    BAHARU LUMPUR - no record, and Baharu & Lumpur are Malasian town name suffixes
    BANDJERMASIN BALU - no record, and these are Indonesian place names

    Now that is a quality post!
  3. Oh, one of the other mods locked the thread.

    It's fascinating how delusional people believe the most outrageous things simply cos they want them to be true, and when presented with overwhelming evidence to the contrary just say "it's a secret" :D
  4. I just read all of the thread, and jesus these people are either delusional, very stupid or in my view, just wind up merchants, the latter being the more acceptable reason. If I am wrong, then why the fcuk have they got computers in the Looney bin Hospitals available to patients.
  5. Try moving around in the site!!!

    It's not bad in general, there are some top blokes on it.

    But some think an stimulating discussion on the best divs of the german army invoves a few lists and some pictures.

    Of course Erwin, IrishDuck and Arkantos are complete barking!!!

    He/they claims to have interviewed vetrans, etc, etc.

    They tie themselves up on practically every point. And merely stand there ground to all arguements with "Shhhhh", "it is secret".

    Anyway, Dani the mod has just pointed out that Arkantos (Erwins mexican freind/persona) has been posting links to Argentine sites, not mexican ones.

    The axe is about to fall me thinks!!!

    Top read.
  6. Interestingly one of these clowns claims to be in Mexico, a country with a brilliant military record. Loss of California and Texas to the americans, invaded by the yanks in the early 1900s, the only wars they have had a result in have been their many civil wars ( after all beat yourself up and you cant lose). The facts speak for themselves, Britain launched the longest invasion in history (8000 miles i think) against a dug in enemy and kicked ass.
  7. It's quite simple really, anyone reading ARRSE who sailed back on the invincible place a message in these idiots messageboard, how stupid can some people be!
  8. The argies are so delusional that they will just say that those people are in on the conspiracy!

    I'm of the opinion that they are not just trolling - they firmly believe what is written on that libreopinion site!
  9. The Argies are delusional.

    Being in Cyprus with the UN we see it everywhere with our dago "friends". Most aptly the day before yesterday, where a map of Argentina has:

    Las Malvinas

    Above it.

    Needless to say it is now struck through in black ink and reads:

    Falkland Islands

    Crazy fe fe fe speaking MOFOs!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. Ah well looks like Erwin and his fellow 12yos/multiple logins have managed to talk themselves into probably getting booted from WW2.

    What a numpty!!!! :lol: :lol: :roll:
  11. If one of the Arrse mods acted in the manner in which Erwin has in the past few weeks, they'd have had their MOD priviliges revoked in a split second! He just got a warning & kept his privilidges, which he has resoundingly abused...

    Fecking amusing thread though :D
  12. This is, aparantly, what HMS Invincible looked like just prior to her sinking. Yeah right, a classic piece of photoshoppery if ever i saw it. I must admit, that thread has been one of the most entertaining internet reads i've had for a while. I'm not sure what these lot are on, but i do think they actually believe the crap their spouting. Strange, delusional people.

  13. No imagination used there at all, if a ship is on fire surely it would be hove too and dropping lifeboats, and I'd imagine the harriers would be off deck too, to chase the nazi , sorry argie planes or whatever..

    They could have tried harder than that :)
  14. It also appears that despite being underway (look at me au fait with fish head speak) all the smoke is blowing off the starboard side (there I go again).

    It must be very windy.
