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. "A slipping gear could let your M203 grenade launcher fire when you least
    expect it. That would make you quite unpopular in what's left of your
    unit." - Army's magazine of preventive maintenance.

    Aim towards the Enemy." - Instruction printed on US Rocket Launcher

    "When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend. - U.S. Marine Corps

    "Cluster bombing from B-52s are very, very accurate. The bombs are
    guaranteed to always hit the ground." - USAF Ammo Troop

    "If the enemy is in range, so are you." - Infantry Journal

    "It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just
    bombed." - U.S. Air Force Manual

    "Try to look unimportant; they may be low on ammo." - Infantry Journal

    "You, you, and you ... Panic. The rest of you, come with me."
    - U.S. Marine Corp Gunnery Sgt.

    "Tracers work both ways." - U.S. Army Ordnance

    "Five second fuses only last three seconds." - Infantry Journal
  3. What is a 'slipping gear'? I've used the M203 grenade launcher (mounted under the barrel of an M16) and I've never heard of a slipping gear. Or is it something else you are talking about?
  4. Aim towards the Enemy." - Instruction printed on US Rocket Launcher

    Yeah. I laughed too when reading that on my first 66mm LAW,
    although it was less of a joke than the weapon it replaced - the 94 Grenade (Energa)!
  5. I quite like the safety advice you get in a MRE pack telling you not to eat the heating element. :hungry:
  6. sheridan tank manual for 82nd airborne:
