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. Announced that they're fuelling up the rocket, Japan & ROK have confirmed they'll take a dint at it if it crosses their turf.

    And before anyone asks... It was on the telly.

    It'll end in tears... Either the Nips and S. Koreans have to back off and let the north broadcast tat from their satellite OR it blows up on the launch pad (and Mossad get blamed!) or the Nips bring it down and Kimwhatshisname-Il-ping-pong has to let the happy and well fed people of the north know. Loss of face for someone... pass the hara-kiri sword please.

  4. Yep, sorry, I know what was said, just there was no link available so I was throwing one in there.
  5. If it crossed ROK or Japanese airspace, would it even be feasible to shoot it down? Rumour has it that it could even reach northern Oz.
  6. Launched, and so far it appears this one has worked.

    edit:- Nope, latest says failed to achieve orbit....
  7. It's North Korean code for - the crops are failing again and we need food aid.

    They always act up when famine is on the cards and they want grain shipments, feed them and they stop playing with rockets and nukes.

  9. One day the Japanese will get so titsed off with North Korea that they will get back into the defence industry and give them a good twatting with giant flying robots.

    Go ahead North Korea, keep poking the science fiction warfare monkey and see what happens.
