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. Any one have any views on other Airborne units from around the world... or worked with them on exercise ????

    Like the 2eme REP(legion)...1er RIPMA

    101st airborne ro 82nd Airborne


    Cheers :)
     
  2. The 101st hasn't been airborne since Vietnam - they converted to an air-mobile role while in country and retained the role when they returned to Fort Campbell. Their formal title is 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).
     
  3. I hear these guys are good Régiment de 49 Parachutistes.
