Going To Falklands ?

Discussion in 'Submariners' started by adrian9901, Feb 4, 2012.

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. It's only news if we read that ALL of our Submarines have gone there! It's a non-story
  2. If it was in the sun, it must be true.probabaly hacked into ther vlf comms as we speak..:slow:
  3. This story is also covered by the Daily Mail.
  4. Sorry but that's no good either - Finks will never believe such sources until the Boat returns with a couple more symbols on her Jolly Roger...:-|
  5. Fixed that for you!
  6. It doesn't matter whether it is true or not as long as the Argies think it might be.
  7. Love to see this real expensive Dauntless Destroyer get a green grenade from an Argentine diesel boat cause sonar wise it f---- useless
  8. Seeing as Argentina are down to their last Fray Bentos tin of beef, are their Latin American allies able to side militarily with them? Just a thought.
  9. He must be the only "expert" who believes Argentina have the ability to even get an SSK to sea, let alone have one with a serviceable SSE.

  11. Have you seen the price of corned beef nowadays ???
    Its nigh on a luxury item now.

  12. It is for the best that we don't know everything, surely this is just speculation on the part of the arse -wipes.
  13. They had the T42's last time they had a go ... trouble was the couldn't get spares so they were fcuked alongside the wall which by Janners list looks to be still the case ... in reserve = fcuked! Either that or they've canniballed one to get the other one going as a LLC.

    As for a Sub going down South ... they'll never know will they .... till its too late! :-D
  14. As long as the Argentine boats can launch a red grenade, that's all they'll need.
