I have been to ARRSE, in fact lurked there before RR was set up, but, why is E-GOAT named.

E-CRAB I could understand? Is it some acronym "Gets off at Tangmere" :roll:

Probably wrong on this one, but that's never stopped me before!

My guess would be that a lot of RAF stations used to (or maybe still do) have goats as their station mascot.

There, that's my two pen'ths worth


The name e-goat came about because of the local rag called "The Orbiting Goat" on the section the founding members of e-goat worked at. When the aircraft came into service in 1999 (Big Hint) there was a spoof pulled on the aircraft manufacturers involving a goat which is where the name originated from.
