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.  
  2. Am I the only one who finds a certain irony in the FAA going out of the fixed wing business, for several years at least, at the same time?
     
  3. No, and some other stuff.

    Edited to add: Flying carrier-based fighter aircraft designed to defend the vessels escorting the carrier - the ultimate in self-licking lollipops.

    Best of luck to the RW-types.
     
  4. But what about if they're defending amphibious forces, minehunters dealing with a minefield, or your logistics? What if the fighters are allowing ASW and the like to take place?

    One of the best dinner nights I've been to, especially as there were Italian officers present (who took it well I thought)
