Default Back from the Falklands

Hi all, i just got back from 12 weeks in the Falklands as part of the Roulement Infantry Company.

Heres a little about the Falklands for those who arent sure Ministry of Defence | Defence For... | The Service Community | Overseas Posting | British Forces South Atlantic Islands | About the Falklands
http://www.mod.uk/NR/rdonlyres/60DA9...nd_islands.pdf
The short story is its about 8000miles from the UK, and there is a small garrison there with some warships and jets.





Whilst i was there i was lucky enough to spend some time working with HMS York HMS York : Type 42 Destroyers : Surface Fleet : Operations and Support : Royal Navy which was then replaced with HMS Portland News and Events : Royal Navy there is always a presence by HMS Clyde too HMS Clyde : Offshore Patrol Vessel (Helicopter) : Fishery Protection Squadron : Patrol Vessels : Surface Fleet : Operations and Support : Royal Navy and its a regular thing to play around on their helicopters and stuff.

Theres also some Rapiers set up, which are cool Ministry of Defence | Defence For... | The Service Community | Overseas Posting | British Forces South Atlantic Islands | British Forces South Atlantic Islands (BFSAI)

Anyway, glad to be back, now i have to get PR reinstalled and back into the game again. See you ingame.

Glad to see you back

some cool photos there, did you get any more and did you get some of the Rapiers etc yourself? Also did you see any penguins, are they good for target practice?

Also did you feel tensions rise with the potential of oil around the Falklands too?
