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. Hi,
    I'm a PSI with a TA unit at the moment and I've been jiffed to put together the Battalions Pre Brecon training weekends. I'm after some good short video clips to put into powerpoint presentations, you know the kind of thing, funny clips, gucci army clips, yanks looking silly. Also any good stuff from Battlestripes etc. I would really appreciate any links to good websites.

    Cheers,


    Tomo

    I assume you are right clicking and attempting to 'save target as', you have to click the link to get to the download page.

    No you don't have to download any software, or exe file or anything like that. Just click the link, go to the download page, put the number in the box (to prevent automated downloaders), wait 30 secs and it will ask you if you wish to open the file or save it to your PC.

    Simple.
     

  8. Cheers mate, Ideal, you're a star.

    No probs. Don't know if you can use this but here's one of both planes hitting the World Trade Centre:

    WTC - CNN Footage

    It's a good clip - you see the first plane hitting then CNN doing that 'bystander reaction' interview thing. As one guy is explaining that he mentioned to his friend that 'that plane's a bit low' the camera pans to the towers and about 3 seconds later you see the second plane go in. Still sends chills down my spine now.

    Here's a storming clip of a firepower demonstration of a chaingun mounted on a helicopter gunship. How much would you love to be that door-gunner popping everything in sight?
