    I'm sorry, this is a great story and all, but when I looked at Rodentus's Avatar I thought the mouse had his brain out for display!

    Anyway I find it amazing that it took a middle aged civilian to pile in and restrain that guy in a tub surrounded by paid servicemen.

    The fact it took an ex RAF member to subdue a gunman on a submarine is something the Royal Navy will never live down.

    Also, if he had a magazine with 30 rounds, doesn't that mean he had an SA80 or something? They were all bloody lucky that more people didn't get hurt.

    There's a reason why the US took top spot away from the UK about 100 years ago. Just sayin...

    We're not getting into a "our military is better than yours" discussion. You're missing the point. You're saying our military are pussies. I'm saying you wouldn't say that to their face.

    So the US is a country with an economy and population far larger than the UK and has larger reserves of natural resources, but yet:

    - who holds the world record for the longest sniper kill? Corporal of Horse Craig Harrison of the British Army

    - who developed the world's most advanced tank armour, chobham? We Brits did.

    - who's building the aft fuselage and empennages, horizontal and vertical tails, crew life support and escape systems, electronic warfare systems, fuel system, and flight control software for the F-35? British Aerospace Engineering.

    - who killed more British personnel than the Iraqis during the Gulf War? The US military.

    Funny situation here. I'd have thought the guns would be under security lock, he wasn't an officer... I've half a feeling there's something more to this. Probably not, but even if there was chances are we'd be spun a tale.

    (Complete novice here, blind to all military matters. But why are there guns on a sub at all? It's not like they'll get borded at the bottom of the ocean. Can a forces fellow answer this for me? Not trying to be sarcy, just curious. Don't see much of the subs.)

    Then you misunderstood my first post. I very much meant it as a "our military is better than yours". I was saying your military are wimps compared to our military.

    I honestly do not know much about all that stuff, it very well could be fact. All I'm saying is, who saved your butts from the Nazi's in WWII? Had the US not gotten involved, you'd be speaking German right now.
