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. From the Associated Press.

    Russia and China are holding their first joint military exercise next year. It will take place on Chinese territory.

    The article contained no information as to the number or type of participating forces.

    This event was announced during a visit to Beijing by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov. He was in town, it is believed, "to discuss expanding the Kremlin's multibillion-dollar annual arms sales to China."

  2. Well at least it's an exercise this time! When was the last time they had a pop at each other (sometime in the 80s?)
