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:

    Future Lynx was a pile of crap anyway.
  2. There's been a buzz going around for about two months now that we've actively kicking the tyres of Blackhawks with a serious view to a buy for the Army & Navy.

    Most annoying thing if we do? We could have had the things back in 1990 if certain Minsters hadn't had a hard on for Euro-cooperation bollox. Westland took out a licence and built and flew a Blackhawk in 1987
  3. I thought Westlands began building EH101 in preferrence to the Blackhawk? Wasn't that Tarzan's resignation argument? Lynx certainly doesn't equate directly to Merlin.
