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. To me armoured and mechanised infantry look the same. What do armoured/mechanised infantry do differently on a day to day basis than say light infantry or airborne infantry. And what makes them differ from one another?

  3. I don't understand the wah concept so it can't be.

    Mech-Saxons, and those new trucks they have bought in, or are currently being bought in (forget the name..)

    And the main difference between the light inf and armoured/mech is that one utilise vehicles, where the other don't to such a great extent
