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:

  2. Well did they hit the intended target, such as the Scottish parliament, or Glasgow for example.
  3. Why put this up? It's just embarassing! "First time we've been able to test fire our own weapons", wow - aren't you cool?
  4. "The Hellfire missile firings conducted from HMS Illustrious once again proved - as HMS Ocean did so effectively last year off Libya - that the potent combination of Apache helicopter and Hellfire missile can be successfully delivered by a UK warship at sea," said HMS Illustrious's Commanding Officer, Captain Martin Connell

    Talk about puffing up a degraded capability. No so long ago Illustrious was chucking Harriers armed with BFO bombs and such like off the pointy end.
  5. Presumably the Apache's were also confirming the op boxes for when the Jock Parliment goes completely rogue and shuts the border (and the oil).
  6. Ah... and I thought it was a show of force!
  7. Those puffins won't be so cocky now eh?
