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. Is common sense starting to break out at the MoD? Now in a perfect world we'd walk away from the deal or at least scale it back massively/offset a load of them to the Saudis and recoup the savings but how likely is that? Unfortunately looks like the Treasury is doing its usual hack and slash at the defence budget from the 'Defence sources said that the Treasury would not allow the MoD to buy both Tranche 3 of Eurofighter and the Joint Strike Fighter' line so even if they do end up saving some money it's not like defence will see any. Even if they managed to shave only a couple billion off, I used the word 'only' in the sense of governments massive profligacy, wonder how much that would help with the current housing scandals?
