Well this has all the makings of the biggest cock up since the Ark.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  2. How was the Ark a cock up?
     
  3. Its not April 1st is it?
     
  4. There is some spare land at Dale Farm could we use that?
     
  5. We still store Chieftain tanks do we? See pic on link.
     
  6. Hold on, we pull everyone back from Germany, then we post folks out there to secure the equipment we've sent out for storage. This is an April 1st item that's been released early by mistake it must be.
     
  7. Witham's have some space.
     
  8. Our taxes pay these people to think up these mongoloid ideas. It shows something when even they realise that the bullshit they come up with is fucking ridiculous. Yet they plan on carrying it out. Utter fucking morons.

    Ooh clever a proper 5th Column
    Store all you kit there with some lads to keep an eye on it
    Then when France and Grmany start the next fall out we don't have to worry about Berlin via Normandy this time
    We just start the kit and drive out and win
    I would use the code word Suprise to be broadcast across Germany to kick it all off.

  10. imagine the quote to move just a fraction of the 'important' kit 50 challanger 2's by road to germany you say how bigs your wallet potential contractors must be rubbing their hands in glee.
    Its gotta be the most penny foolish pound stupid idea i've heard get rid of the established site because the land might be worth something, find a tempory home for all the kit then pay for the development of a new site with the same facilities elsewhere in a few years time. only could a civil servant come up with that idea.

    And you lot laughed and made unkind remarks when I suggested that the MOD had been taken over by a Taliban 5th column!!
     
  13. Here's a novel idea-
    Instead of a central 72 hectare storage depot, give them back to the units they would be allocated to so they are stored locally and can be "readied" in good time. Just like in the good old days.

    Genius.

  14. Not a done deal yet, but the DIO is talking about parking 200 Chally 2s out there, so you need to 'big up' your figures.
     
  15. It'a those fucking Vehicle Spec's isn't it?

    They've been fucking whining for years, and now they've managed to blag some twat at the MOD to store them abroad. Watch the VS CEG become the most popular on earth. LOA and cheap German booze for dipping the odd tank or shining a dusty raod wheel once a week. Cunts!!
