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. My favourite so far, OH NOES THE TERRORISTS ARE DROPPING FROM THE SKY!! :omg:

    "London under attack from Bat-like ninja terrorists"


    EDIT:

    Had to add in that little gem, own up who was that?
     
  2. Well, there's been rumours about stap-ons being used by THEM for years (but only in the bars!).....
     
  3. cool, I can see a lot of advantages in terms of drop time and style, though i doub't its use in a mass drop (though when was the last time a large drop was done in anger?).

    I thok youd be able to take a lot more kit safely, though again, if you have any kit that is decending by itself with you (big crate type things) then you wouldn't be able to use the system and guide the drop!
     
  4. Covert strap-ons.

    No, I definitely don't want to try them out.
     
  5. Aww pants. It's moderated. :(
     
  6. Suez.
     
  7. Does that 15 stone include 'THEM' and their kit? If so, that isn't much.
    I bet they don't have to show up to fcuking Brize 8 hours before a flight......
     

  8. Nahhh...They fly Luftwaffe
     
  9. This morning.

    I'm always angry in the mornings.
