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. From the Associated Press and the Jerusalem Post via Das Bild:

    Iran threatened Friday a "swift and final" response to an Israeli attack.

    ...

    According to Bild, Iran has bought materials for 18 missiles from North Korea and is using technology from Russian submarine-launched missiles to extend their range to 3,500 kilometers (2,200 miles).

    "Germany and other parts of Europe could be directly affected by the Iranian missile program in the medium to long-term," the newspaper quoted from what it said was a new report from Germany's Federal Intelligence Service.

    I had a look at the Das Bild website

    It looks like a Teutonic version of The Sun.

    I couldn't find the stoy.
     
  2. And just as reliable in telling the 'truth'! :)

    Funny how the 'only' other paper to pick up on the story is the Jerusalem Post.
     
  3. All those satellites , HUMINT and Submarines lurking around Bandar Abbas , you'd think someone would have noticed great big steel rocket shaped tubes wouldn't you?
     
  4. Can they be launched in 45 minutes?
