Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I thought things were dire with our forces at the moment, but have the French got problems.

    According to the Telegraph;
    Only 142 out of 346 Leclerc tanks are opperational and they have poor relliabillity.
    50%of Pumas 37%Lynxes33%Supper Frelon(40+years old)30% Mirage F1recon aircraft are opperational

    In an opperation against Somali pirates 2 frigates had engine failure ,the boat with specialist equipement sank and the tracker plane had engine failure and had an emergancy landing in Yeman.

    Good job their tains work well.

    Tragic, but their Forces are not exactly operating in the same number of theatres as the UK are they?
  3. I still wouldn't like to meet the Foreign Legion (La Legion D'Etranger?)or Les Paras except on a very friendly basis.
  4. Cheese eating surrender monkeys :threaten: :thumright:
  5. Here, here Bawsack. The French Battle Ensign is a white cross on a white background.

    According to one of the guides on the Victory, they're still awaiting the return of all of our cannon balls.
