New Sub in Barrow seized engine?

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 have just heard of the latest foul up from those wonderful chaps in B*e, apparently they tried to run the engine without lube, strangely enough it stopped working after a while. How much and how long will this cost and take to put right and who gets to shoulder the cost is the question? :oops:
     
  2. Link? If true, hopefully the "new sub" wasn't Astute - I wouldn't like to be around if that engine seized up!
     
  3. What a strange topic for a 2nd post - a naval topic on an army board? Which paper do you work for?

    2 ways to get medals

    1. Join HM Forces and deploy.
    2. Use Paypal and cough the cash.

    They were taking the sub out on a fishing trip??? WTF were they using, torpedos?

    And another thing - lubing up or not, water is bad for combustion, unless it's fusion of course.

    I hope this answers your question.

    To be fair to gloworm it's already in the news, even if its badly written, muddled, unclear on detail and sensationalist. You'd think a journo would get it right. :twisted:
