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. The world is not enough.

    US 'planned to blow up the Moon' - Telegraph


     
  2. Only the Americans would think of doing something like that....if it's true.
     
  3. How exactly did the conversation that came up with this idea go?

    "Hmm, how do we show those damn commies that we've got a bigger stick?"

    "Dave, I've got an idea..."
     
  4. I'm sure there was a newspaper article in the early sixties (I was a mere nipper) that spoke about a US plan to detonate a nuclear weapon on the moon. It was much talked about in the playground.
     
  5. You'd have to ask at what level it was actually "planned". The Septics draw up plans for the most bizarre things and to counter the weirdest potential scenarios. Usually as nothing more than an exercise in creating plans.

  7. There was a suggestion at stage I recall that if the manned missions revealed evidence of valuable mineral deposits, they could me 'mined' with nukes.
     
  8. Fuck me that's an understatement, if ever there was one!

  10. Your mother was a Lancaster?
