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. Link

    In a sharply-worded analysis, it slams civil servants, senior members of the armed forces, politicians and industry executives for failing to recognise the spending constraints Britain faces.

    How about all the money wasted on Quangos, assylum seekers,benefits etc. etc. It's not just the MoD.

    It said the Ministry of Defence "has a substantially overheated equipment programme, with too many types of equipment being ordered for too large a range of tasks at too high a specification".

    Where is all this new fangled, high spec equipment?

    He called for "routine strategic defence reviews, to be conducted in the first session of a new parliament, as a mechanism to ensure periodic 'resetting' of the MoD's plans".

    You mean more cuts in spending.

    The new strategy will be published in January 2010.

    Maybe someone at the sharp end could help me out here.What new equipement is needed? Surely some more of the existing equipement would be helpful.
