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. Does ANYONE know where I can find video's Of the Chally 2 in action, I have been asked to do a talk at my OTC and I though some vids would be a good addition. Many thanks

    P.S. anyone know any movies with British tank crews actually talking, I can only think of Band of Brothers with the classic line.
    "If I canut see the bugga how can I bloody well shoot him?"
     
  2. Call Bovington.....they can help...

    Try google...just found a load !

    Films - too numerous to mention ....what situation do you weant to show ?

    You must be a maths undergrad...get researching !!
     
  3. Plenty of clips of Horrock's mob from 'A Bridge too Far'

  5. see if you can track down a copy of that Top Gear where clarkson tried to outrun a CR2 with a range rover, they had some class footage on that as well as some good audio.

  6. the boys are either 1 or 2 RTR, cant make out from the capbadge tho.
     
  7. yeah its 2Tp A Sqn 1RTR from Warminster. good bunch of lads, know them all apart from the gunner
     
  8. saw that first time it was on telly- awesome!

    sounds sad to say one of the biggest things I miss (I've been in the PX for the past 3 months) is...top gear.

    gotta love your cars.

    .:M-F:.
     
  9. Brainiac blew a safe up with a Chally 2 as well. Would be good footage for the 120mm.
     
  10. gotta love brainiac, including the experiment showing that a chav dancing in a polyester shell suit was more dangerous than lighting up a fag at a petrol station.

  11. Try this below, some footageand photos etc of Challenger 2. There was a documentry (? Channel Four) on TELIC 1 which featured Ch 2 commander talking about final push on Basra, RPGs pinging off the armour etc. Will do some digging and let you know.

  12. Many thanks
    Talk is quickly becoming 50% Horrocks quotes about besieged homesteaders and 50% chally 2.

    Cheers for all the effort
