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. On the grounds the MOD has bound to have some utterly bonk projects what can a selectish band of arrsers get involved
    In that would invove a arge amount of cash being handed over for an obviously stupid or idea or one tat breaks the awsof physics such as fres.

    Good thinking - then we could buy balsa wood aircraft at the nearest model ship to give it an air wing.

    Chuck in a couple of Airfix kit destroyers for escorts and that's the grey funnel line sorted. (With grey Airfix paint of course).

  7. Sounds like a great idea. Any one suggest some tenders we my bid for? Proper ones only.
  8. defense?

  9. replacement for SA80?

    I'm sure we could make a single light recommendation.

  10. The SA80A2 perhaps?
  11. L85a2, come on join in the political correctness fun!

    Personally I would like to see the procurement of the much fabeled helibedford.

  12. Not modern enough. SA21C (21st century, geddit?).

    Offer to buy all existing SA80s. Obviously for a pittance, because they are used.
    Using the SA80s we've just bought for bugger all, do the following to them:
    1) I think the furniture on the existing SA80 is just black plastic, yes? So replace it with different coloured RECYCLED plastic, gaining green credentials with MOD, the gullible fools.
    2) Put on some kind of fancy sight. Made in a sweatshop in China, obviously. It doesn't have to work well, just look sexy to impress the Minister, who knows fuck all about anything military anyway.
    3) Make the mags a bit bigger, to hold one extra round - more sustained firepower, 'onest guvnor.
    4) Make the bayonet an extra 5mm longer, for "greater reach". Yeah, right.
    5) Charge the MOD 10 times whatever it is they currently pay for an SA80 to buy back "Recycled and updated to meet the needs of the modern soldier on the battlefield of tomorrow" old rifles.
    6) Do a runner.

    Job jobbed?
