'International Brigade' doesn't sound too good - bad connotations and all that. :P

 

And don't we need M47s?

 

Yup, unfortunatly our prepositioned stock in Italy was discovered and confiscated years ago. We may still have the South Korean ones if they have not suffered the same fate.

Nothing very significant, but I thought it was interesting to see. Polish SA6 on exercise, looks like a new vid.

It's from Anakonda 2016 excercises Stuart.

 

SA-6's will be in use till "Wisła" and "Narew" systems will be fielded some time in future.

Erdogan cannot into FU Russia? Shame on you Simon. :D

 

Yeah I cant say I was very impressed,hey look like bit part actors in a 70's episode of Dr Who with that kit. Urban camo would probably have been the last straw.

The Turks. Please...carry handles and goofy helmets. In solidarity with Brexit I am having Orange Pekoe so no coffee keyboard.

 

And that oh so useful forward assist! :P

Newest episode of "Nasza Armia" (Our Army) documentary. There is some video material from Anakonda 2016 excercises. There is also material showing preparations for NATO summit and how National Stadium is prepared for it.

Oh I dont know, I think the Lithuanian Forest brothers are not too worried whom they practice their skills on. :)

 

Speaking of which, been reading this at the moment. A fascinating read, in pretty much the same measure of absolutely horrifying. A must read I think.

Carry handles and goofy helmets aside, the Turkish brigade will certainly be an interesting logistical problem given the cultural differences. Even if 'western' oriented units are selected for the job. It is no longer the Kemalist bastion.

I noticed a distinct lack of ATGM firing on armor. Surely it would be a brilliant way to use up expiring TOW stock not being supplied to AQ. It would test APS and give armor the experience of facing and fighting ATGMs.
