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. If it came to it, could you kill knowing the MoD would back you fully??

    edit, spelling

    sheldrake RIP

    B0ll0x to the MoD. In today's climate they will never support you. When one of the spineless w@nkers has spent a bit of time on the ground, then they might deserve some respect. (By which I mean MP's and Snivel Serpents, because Generals obviously have spent time on the ground. Or have they.....?)

    I'm not generally a fan of things that drop out of the sky, but on this occasion they got it just right. Stick to these ROE and you can't go wrong!

    GUIDANCE FOR LETTING RIP FOR AIRBORNE PERSONNEL
    AUTHORISED TO BE TOOLED UP AND LOOKING HARD WITH MORE WEAPONS AND AMMO THAN
    YOU CAN SHAKE A STICK AT

    GENERAL GUIDANCE

    1. These ROE do not affect your general right to be well hard and kick off.
    However, in all situations you are to use MFV (Maximum Fcuking Violence).

    FIREARMS MUST BE USED IF A SEVERE KICKING DOESN’T GET THE MESSAGE ACROSS

    2. Your weapon must always be of the largest calibre available. That is,
    rifle 5.56mm are OK but the General is definitely the business and as for
    .50 cal - enough said. In the case of automatic weapons belt ammo is well
    ally. L96 is also recommended as it makes you look like a cold blooded
    murdering psycho.

    CHALLENGING

    3. Warn the cnut he is about to get the good news unless:

    a. He was asking for it anyway

    OR

    b. To do so would make you look like a tw@t in front of your mates.

    4. You are to challenge by shouting: “OI, YA "insert pejorative term of choice" CNUT - GET SOME OF THIS”

    Or words to that effect.

    USE OF LETHAL FORCE

    PROTECTION OF THE BLOKES

    5. You may brass the fcuker up if he/she is about to urine you off or commit
    an act likely to make yourself and the rest of yours look not as hard as
    you should be.

    OPENING FIRE

    6. When you open fire you are to:

    a. Brass up the entire fcuking area;

    AND

    b. Get the General up as quickly as possible and give it big licks;

    AND

    c. Look well fcuking tasty throughout.

    PROTECTION OF PROPERTY

    7. Bollocks to it, if it looks Gucci, nick it.

  4. For the sake of a daft question, isn't that sortof our job?

    NTM
     
  5. No!

    Our job, as soldiers, is to defend the queen, her heirs and succesors and the realm.

    Not all and sundry.

    But I like being chinese in BF2!

    I thought C_T meant that the stated ROE was a Septic job.
     
  7. Oh, yes, sorry cutaway mate it's early sunday morning.....

    How silly of me! LOL
     
  8. Make sure the ring is cheap and returnable.
     
  9. 10 p from a bubblegum machine.... cheap enough???? ;)
     
  10. Sounds good to me.

    Difficult to return though.
     
  11. MOD back a soldier..........................do be brief.

    Why would you expect the MoD to support anyone doing anything?
     
  13. In the strict terms of the question
    Yes - certainly. However - given that MoD is a politicians play thing. the situation that I would trust their support would never arise. Even if I had the highest in the land videod alongside me saying 'shoot the bstard Mr Wood', I'd aim off or otherwise fcuk up.
     
  14. Should our RoE be changed? As in Basra the locals mortar us, be spotted from the air and tracked, but after they stop firing, we can't touch them?

    Where's the justice in that?
     
  15. Sheldrake, just p155ed myself with that. Quality, reminds me of a story our company 2IC (para) told me :)
