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. "cnt mk pryrs 2day gt 2 hlp fthr ct dwn ppies"
  2. :D :D :D
  3. Wonder if they will allow us to finally use them in theatre.
  4. Have yet to go there myself but can understand why they are not allowed, and for that reason I hope they remain banned.
  5. Apparently there is a shortage of bomb initiation devices in Afghanistan, so the British Government is going to correct the shortage.

    Same methods as attempted bombers in London are on trial for now!
  6. that is a joke....cied is the major problem out there so they decide to give afghans more of the kit??
  7. Do they get custom ringtones as well? 'Boom-banga-bang" suggests itself.
  8. Unbelievable, the worst idea I've ever heard, let's provide opfor with improved coms - *****
  9. All phones will be tapped and rigged, so if you so much as say "durka bomb durka british durka boom" the phone will then self destruct Mission Impossible 2 style. :roll:
  10. I dunno. If we're supplying the phones I can see how that'd make it easier to eavesdrop. We know the frequencies and the capabilities down to pat. It could be a good source of int if used properly.

    Please tell me someone's thought of this?
  11. What do you think?
  13. That's what came to my mind too !!
  14. I got there eventually! No wonder I am never any good at the crosswords!

    Litotes :D
