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. Just heard, AH fired its AWS in Otterburn this week and the said barrel launched down the range along with the cannon rounds. OOPS!
     
  2. OOOps - is that what they call a barrel full of larfs ? Now who gets the stick for that?

    a. Groundy for cleaning it?
    b. Reme for maintaining it?
    c. The chap/chappess who signed for it and flew it?

    No need to answer here folks (OPSEC etc) but its worth pondering on . .
     
  3. Or maybe whoever designed it?
     
  4. 1 Round per Barrel could prove a bit expensive!!!!
     
  5. Fcuk it. . . it's only money . . .and it IS the apache!
     
  6. has it been found?
    if not lets just hope no rag heads find it
     
  7. Once they have the barrel I presume they will wait expectantly for the Breech, Chamber and everything else to fall off passing apaches too!
     
  8. now was it just the barrel that fell of cause i hear the actual gun fell of
     
  9. just the barrel

    Then the person getting the blame will NOT hold a commission! IMOH
     
  11. The fun bit was getting transported in by Lynx to the top of a large hill not reachable by landrover, forming one straight line and hunting for it.
     
  12. Reminds me of another weapon firing sketch . . . that of Lynx TOW . . .


    Now then chaps. One straight line and forward march.

    Any wire we came across over the next 3½ kms was to be wrapped around your arms and if you still had your arms at the end of the jaunt, then the HWI would come along and demostrate why it was called "cheese wire" . . . oh deep joy, to$$bag. ;-)
     
  13. I found it far easier to wrap it around the rotor head. :roll:
     
  14. Was it found and put back in the armoury ?
     
  15. Sir, I have no live rounds or empty cases or fallen off barrels on my person, sir.
