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. while sat in the bar with my RTO talking shop we somehow got into a profound argument about AS90 statistics.

    needless to say i lost miserably!

    please pass on all your gun trivia and help my baffle him with my knowledge

    blondy :)
  2. Bullets come out the 'pointy end'...keep it pointed 'down range'.
  3. It's Air Portable, fords at 100 metres and carries 40 men. In the right hands you can have a round on target, one in the breech and 17 in mid air. The bayonet has it's own trailer but they are all in pres as the cold war is over.

    If you need anything else PM's a bit classified.

    Bombardier Biscuits
  4. I'm trying to figure out exactly who is the saddiest

    Him for using AS90 calibre sizes as a chat up line

    or you for trying to gleam info to carry on the conversation ?
  5. With the AS90M40 Drum magazine fitted, this can be increased to 25-30rds in the air when used in the Anti-Aircraft role
  6. Has anyone mentioned the flame thrower and VTOL capability? What about the laser?

    not to mention the nifty little bottle opener on the rear hatch...
  8. The new version is the AS90A2
  9. Is that the one which looks like Thunderbird 4?
  10. My mate Rob used to command a Regiment of the buggers.

    He was a right fat knacker at school so imagine my surprise when I found THAT out.

  11. What? that he was a right fat knacker at school?
  12. yes but no what I meant was

  13. But was he a fat knacker and did he go to school?
  14. If you elevate the barrel to maximum elevation, and close all the hatches/latches you can use said barrel in the snorkel role, thus rendering the AS90 amphibious. This is still kept on the "down-low” as the plan to cross the channel and strike the French has been put on hold due to the fact that their stiff a bit miffed over the Olympics.

    This is, of course, only made possible thanks to BAE's TOP SECRET oscillating foo-foo valve situated near the cup holders.

    Hope this helps you with your shite discussion with the RTO. Perhaps you’ll stop boring me now with your bloody tattoo photos!!!!
