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. So, Snatch, is being replaced by Ocelot, which, when looked up on the interweb turns out to be a cat. so, we get a Snatch being replaced by a pussy, whats the next vehicle going to be called ? I await 2013 and the launch of the Clunge with anticipation.
  2. 2013?
    We'll have no money in the pot by then.
  3. An Ocelot is also an endangered species. Doesn't exactly inspire confidence does it?
  4. So's Snatch when you get past 55 (or so me dad said)
  5. whatchu talkin bout willis? it's named after 'Revolver ocelot' from Metal Gear Solid.....obviously! :)
  6. Glenn Quagmire?
  7. Is there any now?
  8. To answer the original question...obviously some cnut in the MoD
  9. Not sure, but there is a pattern forming. Panther, Ocelot both cats. Mastiff, Ridgeback, Wolfhound and Husky all dogs.
  10. What's next! Skippy Kanga & Roo?
  11. What is it with animals, anyway? Whatever happened to proper names that instil a bit of fighting spirit, like Chieftan, Centurian, Churchill ?
  12. Or what about honey?,that was a real fix bayonets name indeed.
  13. although i do quite like mastiff and ridgeback to be honest. maybe the next batch could be named after natural disasters? the tornado/ hurricane, the quake 2.0, thunder/lightning for LR vehicles, the blizzard/sandstorm.....they sound good. i think i'm onto something.

    I think now and again, these procurement agencies must get someone with a sense of humour. The same happened to Ford during the late 70's early 80's. We had the Fiesta, the Escort - but unfortunately I am still awaiting the long anticipated Ford Razzle and Ford Readers-Wives.
