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. A British company has produced a superior vehicle to the Ridgback. Same price, lighter and more protection. It has been blast tested and the MOD said they don't need it


    Universal, which has spent £3.5 million building the prototype, has carried out a test using a quantity of TNT equivalent to double the average size of explosive found in Afghanistan, without the hull being breached.

    its makers say the Ranger is two-and-a-half times better protected than the Ridgback that will be used in Afghanistan from next month.
