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. Is it free to use this?
     
  2. Yes, but you can pay for higher quality, give it a shot.
     
  3. Awsome piece of kit.
     
  4. You can get a really good view of most bases too! D'oh!
     
  5. Strange, I read under Google Earth (free version) FAQs that the quality of picture is roughly the same no matter what version you use..........
     
  6. The Pro version comes with advanced features, not higher quality pictures. All sorts of GPS things and certain measuring options. Very expensive and totally useless to the casual user.
     
  7. The free version is fine for what most people use it for, which is one of 3 things.

    1) Gorping at your house.
    2) Gorping at your mates house.
    3) Measuring distances for running.
     
  8. Apparently, if you zoom right out... you can see the Space Shuttle.
     
  9. If you go to 30degree, 39' 22.61" N
    ...and to 104 degree 02' 38.73" E

    You can see my sister's flat, in Chengdu, on the right hand bank of the Jin Jan River, just to the right of the pointy grassy bit.
     
  10. Does Shan work at the Male Diseases Hospital, just over the road? If so, I hope she washed her hands before doing the Chop Gear test drives.
