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. A Challenger 2 tank has been penetrated by a roadside bomb in Iraq leaving the driver with serious injuries, the Ministry of Defence has confirmed.

    A bit of a first I think, & get well soon mate.

  3. This is the same incident that Michael Yon first reported in his blog as an embed with British troops in Basra which happened on 6 April.

  6. Indeed - a speedy recovery for all concerned.
     
  7. Just heard the BBC PM News mention the CR2 incident. You could almost hear the glee of the Beeb Guardinistas celebrating the fact that a CR2 has been disabled (M Kill only) by the Iran backed militias. Wa*nkers.

    Best of luck to the Guy who was injured.
