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. Do soldiers get a slings for the SA80 or any other gun infact? Seems silly to ask I guess but I've seen people just carrying their guns and not using slings?!
  2. It's magnetic. You pull the weapon system away from you just like HALO.

  5. Have you seen the size of the fyckers in HALO!!!
  6. The magnetic Osprey plates are a magnificent invention; the only drama is the polymer magazines that make the rifle twist up towards your helmet when sat in the modified Bulldog.

  7. When entering the bulldog, you must disengaged the magnets otherwise you will end up looking like the dogs bollocks!!

  8. ****! What a twat - no wonder I looked like a twat getting in and out of the cupola! (I take it you use the two switches below the plate serial numbers to turn it off.)
  9. The light gun is not to bad to carry but the AS90 is a bitch.
