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:

  2. Could have given the contract to N Korea I suppose
  3. Under the 10-year contract, which will help sustain around 2,000 jobs across the UK, Rolls-Royce will deliver and maintain the nuclear power source for the Royal Navy’s Astute Class and future Successor deterrent submarines.

    Missed the part where it said improve top speed to over 30 knots...
  4. But the most important thing is that votes and seats are secured, not that it's the best kit we can get.
