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. I was asked a question in work today and am hoping someone in here holds the answer.

    Can anyone tell me what height a mortar round can go when it leaves the barrel? Light and medium if possible...

    I appreciate it depends on the angle of the barrel but a ball park figure will do .

    Many Thanks

    Cooks? :p :wink:
  8. I swear someone told me that the majority of the fire power comes from SF guns sometime ago

    But then again how do you measure fire power?
  9. Mortars - now there is a weapon. Happiness is a hot tube.
  10. FO, simple. You stand at the end of the range. Everyone has a cabbie and then you come back and tell us which was the scariest.

    As long it is not a glowing and dripping green :twisted:
  12. Dear God, how many statistic-riddled, tube-and-nail homily burdened threads does it take to teach you lot not to provoke the antique weapons platoon?

    Stop poking questions into their cages -- they get all agitated and start decorating their genitals with augmenting cartridges, shoving bore brushes up each other's hoops...and then comes the unbearable litany of 'mortaring factoids'.

    It's all gets quite unnecessary and then we have to redecorate the ante room and apologise to the mess staff.

    Now run along, you naughty boys!
  13. Stickybomb - Antitanks, by any chance?

    But I love the dirty talk in your second paragraph....
  14. Barrels my friend, barrels. Smarties come in tubes...
  15. 2/3 of British Army casualties were caused by Mortar fire during WW2.
