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. No sure if this is the right place for this, but I'm restoring a Scorpion turret and I'm trying to find out what's missing in mine.

    I have posted this on the RAC page too...

    Any info most welcome!
