"Tornado crap" RAF admit after runway bombing success shocker

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. Gash Crab Bombeads :)

    Spooky how the RN can multiskill the Pinkies and Greenies and make bombeads out of them as well, but the RAF keep this outdated trade as something sacred?

    Having spent years working with them, they hang around all day (in their special crewrooms), pop out after flying and expect all trades to down tools whilst they do their bit, before early chopping.
  3. "Dropped deadly missiles", what other sort are there??

    Not-dropped ones?

    I rather liked this quote:

    Hmmn. "If only we hadn't deliberately scrapped the Harrier to prematurely destroy the UK expeditionary air capability"

    Two hits on a runway, was that better than their Falklands effort?

  6. Nice to see a museum picture of some MK3 Fighters.

    You lads are funny. Loads of serious capability weaknesses mentioned in that piece but the opportunity for a bit of crab bashing can't be lost.
  7. Got it in a nutshell :)
  8. Now that is sacrilege, no trade either RAf on RN should early chop before a pinky
  9. If the powers that be took a very close look at how the junior service operate they could see where the savings and improvements could be made. This is not just a dig but I have never seen crewrooms so busy than on RAF squadrons.
