    Armourers providing bombs and missiles?
    Gosh whatever next RAF Cooks make meals for servicemen in Italy
    Flight Lt Digby Smythe Jones stated "One felt better blowing up a truck after burger and chips which was served to one by a white coated steward"

    Are they actualy paying you chimps to push this crap out?

    Why are the armourers dressed like firemen
    Normally they are in grubby overalls and gortex looking like a refugee army
    An image they take pride in having cultivated it over the years
  3. Well, Tally Bladdy Ho, Chaps.

    As above, isn't that their fcuking job?
  4. With some pilots resting up as they are not qualified for ground attack. Also aircraft being cannabalised to keep some in the air.
  5. In other words, "Look! Look! We've managed to find another tenuous way of crow-barring a Typhoon reference into the media!"

    Want comparatively large pools of manpower to supply every niche trade? One nation, One Air Force...
  6. I was hoping to find a pic of some female totty in uniform, standard pc crap ... but no, we've now moved onto aliens in firemans uniform.... WTF!! that is surely pushing the PC envelope to impossible extremes.. I must write a letter to the Daily Mail to complain, whats next, alien toilets in shopping centres

    With the Typhoon,if the it comes under attack while still on the ground,the sensor's will automatically fire decoy flares,despite the WOW (Weight on Wheels) switch being engaged plus the guys are suited up for a technical reason as the flare system is not as safe as previous platforms like Tornado F3's...
  8. A bit of free publicity for Thales in there too!
  9. He's perfectly safe if anything goes wrong, He's got his HiVis on.
  10. Ridiculous isn't it!
  11. Genius system, was a committee involved?

  12. Edited for accuracy

    Coming next from MoD_RSS; Water is wet and the Pope wears a pointy hat.

  13. Well, a little non RAF bird told me yesterday that the cooks in the Italian hotels many are lodged in do very fine eats.

    Who gave the MoD RSS a log on and who just graduated with a first in stating the bleeding obvious?
    Fecking oxygen thieves!
  15. Just remember mate, in this time of paycuts and equipment cuts, a team of these highly paid MOD oxygen thieves are being paid to send out terra bytes of this dross.

    Whoever is doing it seems to have a Doctorate in positive spin or he's the bloke who used to do the Ronco adverts. I can just imagine them reporting the sinking of HMS Prince of Wales and Repulse:

    "MoD_RSS: The loss of HMS Prince of Wales and Repulse will allow the Royal Navy's far east fleet to cut overall operational costs by 100% and will help the Royal Navy achieve it's stated aims of reducing CO2 emissions'
