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. looks IED/booby trap proof :roll:
  2. It is the chassis from their previous anti-IED robot, with a new top section added on to provide lots of extra fire power. :p :p :p

    bring it on mr insurgent! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    Although it does bring back memories of the terminator films

    just imagine, 10yrs from now, we may be fighting them 8O 8O 8O
  3. Now we just need the insurgants to fight for four hours at a time - because that's how long the batteries last!
  4. Can we start gassing people and then use it? :twisted:
  5. That wouldn't happen to be a certain Marine Potter H. would it? :roll:

    Trouble is, it won't eliminate the one septic shooting error that really matters...'is it ours?'

    Mmm, I'm getting ideas like 'grappling hook' and 'paint'. The only problem that the insurgents will have is finding an orange jumpsuit to fit it.
  6. And it appears that this robot is not totally American in origin ....

    and a quick look at the directors of the Carlyle Group it appears that it is advised and owned by a number of prominent individuals such as John Major, George Bush Sr, James Baker and friends.

    I'm sure they'll last about a week.

    RPG, RPG shun!
  8. This is good news:

    1. You don't have to tell this dingus how long it's going to be staying over there, and,

    2. You don't have to explain to it why it was sent over there in the first place.
  9. Dont even need a RPG, just kick it over so it falls on its side, job done!
  10. Betcha,
    Abduls e-mailing Charlei 'Eh ya should see their latest hi teck wizardry, tell me sum more tales of Nam'
  11. It reminds me of the old wheelbarrow bomb disposal robot
  12. Throw a sack over the little bleeder and drag it into the bushes! Then I suppose you and your mates can moon at its camera before you start sending it to the manufacturer, screw by screw
  13. It suffers from the same problem as the Daleks: all set to dominate the universe until they came across a staircase :D
