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. I tried to search, but search function was down.

    Seen this clip?Nice I want one
     
  2. Wasn't that given the arrse years ago because the propellant wouldn't ignite reliably enough? (quite a problem in a weapon with no ejection port) Recoil looked a bit brisk too.
    Was it a good clip? Pootube won't work for me for more than 3-5 seconds (I just expressed my displeasure by sneezing wad on the screen. "Take that, Spawn of Astaroth!")

    F*cking technio...computropoot...shiny thing.
     
  3. yeah it does look like it kicks abit- but it's shiny
     
  4. No chance of a yippee shoot with one of those at the next range weekend. What's the RWAR up to these days?
     
  5. had live fire on all HE weapons the other week. Got 2 weekend of Urban coming up. What unit you in?
     
  6. None at present- ex QUR Aslt Pnr, training up to re-enlist. I'm so far out of touch that I'm not even sure that QUR exists anymore. Last I heard- several years ago- all the Offr Cdt functions were going to RMC. Bet that's screwed the Uni recruitment figures! (mind you, we didn't get interesting training like Urban- or anything else, for that matter)
     
  7. If i remember right it may have a bit of a kick but its cyclic rate is so fast it will put a burst (2 rounds i think) down range before your point of aim moves at all. One of its problems was also fouling in the mechanism, due to the propellant not 100% burning away with each round.

  8. isn't there probs wiyh heat build up? turns out most of the heat in a gen is taken out with the case.
