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. Interactive picture showing the poor condition of the DDG Stout and CG Chosin.

  2. So what now?

    Do you just throw them away and buy new ones?

  4. I would think they need to spend some time in the yard and I almost forgot - relieve the two skippers.
     
  5. I would think a near complete refit is in order, especially for the Chosin, which doesn't seem to have a single functional weapon system, even after 2 1/2 year inactive, invincible is probably in better nick.

    How does this not get reported as a maintainance issue?

    I wonder how much more of the US' massive fleet is unfit for duty?
     
  6. P45 for the chiefy and the mess webley for the skipper. Presumably the tiffs were spending all their time watching porn in the chiefs' mess?
