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. Doesn't bother me. We should probably be making a few quid doing the same. Cold War days are over.
     
  2. They're not buying hulls, they're buying the Frog CMS.

    Edit:- Actually the Froggists have said the ship's "most advanced" electronics are not included. I suspect this refers to SENIT. Which makes you wonder why the fup the Rooskies are paying so much for them.
     
  3. I thought we were supposed to be being matey with Russia now? Although who's going to be the first to tell Putin that he can't change the colours because they nailed the white flag to the pole?
     
  4. I think the Russians already have too many Non Operational carriers to want the RN's. Maybe they need non flying Chinooks?
     
  5. ...and of course, we would never consider selling power packs or fire-control systems to upgrade Chinese MBTs, would we? ;-)
