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:

  2. Least it won't break down!!!!

    not sure on off-road capacity?
  3. Does the army have enough men to operate such a system?
  4. might just about manage to scrape up the manpower (plenty of 2 bit minor royals around) but not so sure if they can find the bullets for the gun though.
  5. Is this contraption Italian? I only ask because the weapon's arc of fire enable it to be used only whilst retreating.
  6. Notice the "all terrain" prime mover (tricycle) with integral ammo/shopping basket :)

  7. No its direct from the Naval Constructors at Bath. It can fire ahead but this does require the gunner running behind and the fitting of Mk2-14A Mod. ie, a bar welded in a hoop shape fron port to starboard of the trolley to prevent the ark of fire hitting the propulsar unit.

  8. Isn't that just one of the Welsh regiments in cammo ? :) :D
  9. Shouldn't the driver be wearing a helmet (in case he falls off)?
  10. It looks to me that the RMR weekends havent got any better!! 30 rounds each, no NVG's whilst sat in an O.P and the transport (as featured)is as bloody uncomfortable!! :lol: :lol:
  11. I know the government are worried about climate change and the emissions arising from Land Rovers (lovely things) but surely this is taking things just a little too far?

    No need - the picture shos the 3 wheel variant which is inherently more stable than the bicycle variant (not shown). Following an extensive risk assessment by the MoD Bean counters it was determined that the risk to budgets far outweighed the risk to cannon serving front line troops... and as such helmets would only be issued according to the scale of bicycles held.
  13. As there is no belt or drum of ammo fitted to the weapon, I take it that it is the new "Sound and Motion" model. You go through the motions to load it and then shout "Bang", "Bang", "Bang", whilst pulling the trigger!

    Keep Striving.
  14. However, due to lack of funding only a two wheeled variant will be available. Because of the known incompetence of the procurement agencies you can bet it will be the front wheel that gets ditched.
  15. How fast does it go?.
  16. depends on 3 factors!

    1.How much of a fat Bastard the Gunner is.

    2.How many Pies the driver ate!

    3.How much incoming you are recieving!
  17. Not sure where you recieved that pic but it is a classified document!!!!

    New Zealand Special Forces can you explain where you found it!!!
  18. So with 2 and 3 it could potentially be rocket propelled? However as Jimmy has pointed out, if the MoD have their way it will have a wheel problem. They probably will be outsourced to a manufacturer of steel filing cabinets... :roll:
  19. To good looking to be Welsh, shes a member of the Hebridean Local Defence Force. This group was formed to prevent the Vikings landing on our fair shores. Her mother is a cross dresser and when in Hielan Coo rig has a Milan strapped across her horns.
