Submarine Rescue

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. There is much more to NSRS than the vehicle. Look here and at the more recent news on 29 Jun 07 in News Archive 18 of the MCDOA website.
  2. It seems the French are involved, are they going to has a hissy fit and stamp their feet if they don`t get to build it?? :dwarf: or have it based in france?? :dwarf:
  3. Seems its to be based in Faslavatory.

    and its opperating depth is 1000m compared to 400m for LR5
  4. That is good news, thanks.
  5. According to this article on the RN website, NSRS has just been trialled succesfully with a Norwegian submarine. The vehicle used was the PSSL Triton SP ROV which replaces the LR5. This is currently known as the SRV1 (Submarine Rescue Vehicle 1) but the team is looking for a more imaginative name. My suggestion is 'Sue' (Sundodger Underwater Evacuator) although 'Thunderbird 4' might be appropriate. Any others?
  6. For those of us who had kids that sat glued to the telly for International Rescue Thunderbird 4 sounds great.
  7. You don't want to be operating down at that depth Toppers. In fact I don't think 1000 metres's figure they use to scare the sprogs with in the Submarine School. Anything below 400 metres is bloody silly.

    The RN are having another weapon developed to be used at silly scarey depths. It's a follow on from Tigerfish and Spearfish. The new weapon will be called Flatfish. All the lower beams on the sensor head will be deleted 'cos nothing will be daft enough to be beneath it!
  8. Why not call the new toy ARCTURUS, after all everyone will immediately know it is to do with escapology from a sunken sub
  9. How about ARTEMIS? A pertinent reminder to all that things can and do go wrong.
