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. How will the floods in Pakistan impact on resupply to Afghanistan? Is the northern route robust enough to take up the slack should the supply chain through Pakistan fail entirely? Will the Taliban have similar problems? Any thoughts?
  2. Can use boats now.
  3. Does this mean that the Royal Navy can use some of their toys in the region?
  4. My take on the scenario is cut Pakistan out of the resupply chain completely. Just do whatever deal we need to do with Tsar Putin and truck the stuff down from Mother Russia. With adequate Russian Army and Airforce escort all the way to the Afghan border. May cost lots of money, but far less than what we are giving the Talibs in Afghanistan and Pakistan not to attack the convoys.

  5. Giraffe it across?
