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. Nothing to do with BAE.

    They come from the US, we upgrade them to MOD requirements.

    I have been told they'll hit 60 if pushed!!!

    Ambulance version due very soon (prototype was in the background)
     
  2. Agreed, nowt at all to do with BAE.
     
  3. I met the MD of the firm back in May of last year when the IPT visited when they had just been delivered to TELIC and he is a really proactive bloke. He was keen to hear views on performance. However the need for a C2 variant should hopefully be alleviated very soon also.
     
  4. Stand By for Dr North to tell us this is the only vehicle we need now!
     
  5. Well B_C funny you should say that there are plans afoot to kit out at least two BN's with said vehicle!!
     
  6. its just like the Sea King - built under license
     
  7. Actually, no.

    As the man said, the basic Cougar chassis is built in the US - NP do the upgrades.
