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. [​IMG]

    Iranian Scorpion
    A good driver, closed down without a periscope fitted?

  2. And another...........

  3. m113 or fmc lash up ?
  4. [​IMG]

    Chieftain (?)
  5. turret yes
    hull, i see no oil everywhere !
  6. It looks like the Scorpion is on a low loader
  7. It also looks like its been lashed down with baling band and not only that, the restraints are cutting over the right angles of the trailer frame losing yet more load resistance.
  8. It doesnt look like it would take much of a hit...whats the armour rating on it? AK47 or Dushka???
  9. More bluff and bluster

    Why would you parade an armoured vehicle, with a crew member, on the back of a low loader. How Ally is that?

    However, if they don't actually work.....
  10. Besides the Chiefy,they are all on low loaders. Why, ive no idea?
  11. Probably to hide the 'AirFix' label.
  12. Is the Chiefy not a Khalid?

    Possibly something they captured in the past, poss off our old allies the Iraqi's?

    I believe we also sold Khalids to Jordan, if i remember it was basically a Chiefy with a CR1 engine, though those back decks look similar to a Leopard.
  13. There was some debate as to whether the S-300 SAM system the Iranians paraded back in April were the real deal or not: You decide!

    Similarly, remember the photo-shopped missile launch?Fail
  14. Dont think the Jordanians have sold anything military to the Iranians??? Not best of buddies really.
  15. Funnily enough the Iranian Army Equipment Wiki page for the Scorpion/Tosan states the following:
