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. Why do we have to abbreviate everything?

    DMICP, DII(FD), RLI, SLI, LDCN etc

    Why don't we just state things in English.

    e.g. DII(FD) - a satellite system giving access to either Restricted/Secret Military Intranet. Or LDCN = Restricted RAF Intranet

    Don't get me started on info babble, net-centric, info ops, Information Operations Estimate & Planning -- or we are going to make more use of computer networks.

    p.s. Whats EB TOPFAS / IWPC or JETTS (ASSESS)

    I asses a word? Please no.

  13. Yes of course.

    I was just commenting on how TLA's are used to encrypt the true meaning of applications. I wonder how much of a project is spent on deciding a good TLA. Lets call the IS SUp a Wide Area Network Knowledgeable ExpeRt or .....
