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. First of class suffers teething problems, is this not the norm? They said the same about Vanguard and Upholders as well didn't they?
     
  2. It's all a crock of shit :)

    Anyone got a number for a plumber?
     
  4. Chuck a few buckets of water down there and if that doesnt dislodge the blockage.......poke the turd down with a stick :p
     
  5. Deal with the fluids via bilge pump & bag up the lumpy bits for consignment via the Gash Ejector - As employed in '69 by ORACLE (and probably by A. N. Other boats, too?)
     
  6. Armed with Tomahawk eh? No other weapons then?

    Total non story.

    yeah, armed with TLAM. Like the boat needs a land attack capability whilst on sea trials.
     
  8. Article says "weapons support and sewage system", wonder how you cross connect the macerators and poo pump to the weapons system?

    Another journalistic bit of sensationalism.
     
  9. Do they still have a Gash Ejector? Surely under MARPOL Regulation blah ...... it is illegal to dump anything at sea now.
     
  10. Not on Astute, but there is going to be on the rest.

    Depend what you ditch, and where you ditch it.
     
  11. Maybe the shit tank vents in to the Bomb Shop? on the rails or racks? that could be "Weapons Support"
