Germany and France definately
Spain, Poland, Italy possibly
Canada, the Netherlands maybe
everybody else probably not

but it all depends on the will of the government to take responsibility over a certain area and to deploy 2000 odd troops in one place ... don't see my government doing that any time soon

how independant will the Canadians be in Kandahar?

how independant will the Canadians be in Kandahar?

From my understanding of it they will still be a part of ISAF but ISAF's role will become more dominant in Afghanistan as a whole. The Canadians are in charge of Kandahar and the area around that. As well as some other areas of the country.

In 2006 I've read in the paper that we are planning to have a 2000 strong complete battle group in country. With their own helos, precision artillery (new M777 guns), direct fire support, and all that good stuff. Here is a article detailing what I have just summed up.

Here are some articles on new capabilities making their way into the army.

What sights do Canadian soldiers use? I'm assuming they're inferior to the red-dot sights used by the Americans.

We use a variety of sights that include the ELCAN C79A1 and A2 optical sights. It should be notes the US forces also use ELCAN sights.
Canadian ELCAN and C7 rifle.
http://www.gun-world.net/old/sight/elcan/c8a1el.jpg
see.. US Army M240 GPMG.
http://www.access-overseas.com/images/elcan_in_action.jpg
We also use the EOTECH holographic sight.
http://img319.imageshack.us/img319/2426/ka2005r1050424d2pu.jpg
We also have night sights and night vision lazer sights.

Of course other sights are used in the special forces but I wouldn't know what those are. Most likely top of the line stuff.

However, the C79A2 optical sight, seen here, is a top of the line sight and is used by Canada and will be purchased by other nations that buy Canadian small arms and sights, like the Danes, Singapore, and others. To compare the C79A2 to red dot sights would be like comparing apples and oranges.

most of the troops(infantry) going to Kandahar will get the EOTECH sight if not the sect comds will and select pers, but the remainer of the troops use ELCAN, now which is better i like the red dot ones to the ELCAN. the ELCAN gets knocked around to much and breaks ease so....

US troops are under Enduring Freedom not under ISAF
they should be somewhere between 15.000 and 20.000 right now?

Germany and France definately
Spain, Poland, Italy possibly
Canada, the Netherlands maybe
everybody else probably not

but it all depends on the will of the government to take responsibility over a certain area and to deploy 2000 odd troops in one place ... don't see my government doing that any time soon

how independant will the Canadians be in Kandahar?

I think that all of those countries (Spain, Poland, Italy, Canada and the Netherlands) are able to 'be on their own' in a country like Afganistan. I fail to see why the military capacity of Poland would exceed that of Canada or the Netherlands, maybe in sheer manpower...yes....but in terms of providing your own airsupport, airtransport, offensive SF-operations in the own Area of Responsibility, Intel-gathering....I don't think so.

All of these countries have already proven that they can operate on their own in Iraq (Spain, Italy, Poland, Netherlands) and Afganistan (Canada, Netherlands, ?) My guess is that all of the NATO member that will deploy in the dangerous southern Afhanistan are pretty much self-sufficient in their own AoR (Great Brittain, Canada, Netherlands)

Will the Australian PRT operate in Uruzgan? together with the Dutch?

sp2c
02-09-2006, 10:32 AM
yes good points but I don't know we operated under Brittish command in Afghanistan but this could just be our politicians' reluctance about taking responsibility for anything ... the Poles keep impressing me

I guess we should be able of doing it all on our in Uruzgan but mr. Balkenende doesn't want to take the risk that comes with it.

yes I believe an Australian PRT will be joining us in Uruzgan ... I believe the Australians have upped the number to 500?

I think that all of those countries (Spain, Poland, Italy, Canada and the Netherlands) are able to 'be on their own' in a country like Afganistan.

Is Iraq country like Afghanistan?


I fail to see why the military capacity of Poland would exceed that of Canada or the Netherlands, maybe in sheer manpower...yes....but in terms of providing your own airsupport,

We have 16 copters in Iraq (4 Mi-8, 6 W-3, 6 Mi-24).


airtransport,

Well, yes it is true, we have only 8 C-295M, the situation will be a bit better when we receive (2007-09) 5 second hand C-130. Thank's god for Ukrainian An-124 - we are hireing form them.

We also have 10 An-26 but they have to short range to operate to Iraq or Afganistan, we use them to cover KFOR and SFOR missions in Blakans.


offensive SF-operations in the own Area of Responsibility,

bull ****, we had SF operators operating beyond enemy lines weeks before invasion on Iraq, our GROM is a top of the world SF unit.


Intel-gathering....I don't think so.

Another bull **** - Polish Intel agents saved lives of 3 CIA agents during Desert Storm and contributed vital information to Alied Forces. Do you know that in pre OIF times Polish Embassy was representing US interests in Iraq? (US had no embassy in Iraq).

The problem is that we can't be everywhere at once, we have over 2000 soldiers in Iraq, and we command the Multinational Division South-West. We have about 150 soldiers in A-stan but they are not under ISAF command so they are not on your lists, we also have soldiers in many other places like Pakistan, Kosovo (KFOR), Bosnia and Herzegovina (SFOR), Golan highlands, Turkey, ships contributing in Active Endeavor operations on Mediterenian Sea (submarine and frigate), 4 of our MiG-29 are in Lithuania and are performing Air Policing missions there (Baltic countries has no Air Force) etc etc etc, we can't be everywhere. The plans are to reduce our forces in Iraq and send bigger forces to A-stan in late 2006 and 2007 (including copters, SF and armored vehicles).

One more thing - article about GROM:

http://www.weeklystandard.com/Conten...2/653hsdpu.asp


IT CAME AS A SURPRISE to many when the U.S. postwar plans for Iraq were finally revealed. Like Gaul, Iraq would be divided into three parts: an American zone, a British zone, and a Polish zone. But what role did Poland play during the war? It turns out a very important one--albeit one that was kept mostly secret.

One of the primary objectives during the early stages of Operation Iraqi Freedom was the port at Umm Qasr. Without it, delivering adequate humanitarian aid to the rest of Iraq would have been nearly impossible for the coalition. Not long after the start of the war, the port was secured--in large part thanks to GROM, Poland's elite commandos.

Who even knew Poland had special forces? For a while, not many. The Polish government waited three years before publicly disclosing GROM's existence. Standing for Grupa Reagowania Operacyjno Mobilnego (Operational Mobile Response Group), the name actually stems from a special-forces commander, Gromoslaw Czempinski, who, during the first Gulf War, led a Polish unit into Western Iraq to rescue a group of CIA operatives. One of the other men on that secret mission was Slawomir Petelicki--the father of GROM.

"I had a lot of candidates at first" says the general. "That first team I assembled from people I knew well. They were all in their 30s. Now the age of recruits is about 26." According to Jane's Intelligence Review, "GROM candidates were first subjected to a grueling psychological examination meant to search for confident and innovative soldiers as well as those who, though they might be lacking in physical strength, possessed the rare gift of internal iron will." The candidates then undergo back-breaking training deep in the Carpathian Mountains.

Only 1 to 5 percent of these candidates actually get into GROM. But once they are in, the real training begins: GROM operators practice "killing house" entries (with commanders often serving as hostages), storm hijacked commercial airliners complete with mannequin terrorists and bullet traps, and lead raids onto ships and offshore platforms. All of this is done with live ammunition. The commandos are trained in paramedics and demolitions and many are SCUBA experts. They mostly work in four to six-man assault teams except for the snipers who are separate because, as Petelicki explains, "that is a job for special people and they are very hard to replace."

Radek Sikorski, Poland's former deputy minister of defense and now executive director of the New Atlantic Initiative, recently told me he witnessed the snipers at their best during a training exercise in 1999. "The GROM operators were working alongside the Delta Force and were tasked with rescuing the chairman of the National Bank of Poland. He was being held hostage by terrorists in possession of a nuclear device." Sikorski says the snipers waited for days in complete disguise. "They just followed the terrorists' routines and then started to pick them off one by one."

GROM operators are said to be martial arts experts and capable of "cold killing." "We created our own style of martial arts," says Petelicki. "I have an old friend who is a master of karate and jujitsu and is a sixth degree black belt. He created the style with other specialists--it is most similar to what the Israelis do."

PETELICKI says that GROM is a mixture of the Delta Force, SAS, and the Navy SEALs. "We took what we found best from each group." (GROM trainers have been to Fort Bragg as well as Hereford--home of the SAS.)

For the past twelve years, GROM operators have engaged in numerous operations, including peacekeeping in the Balkans and Haiti. In 1997, they successfully captured Slavko Dokmanovic, aka, "the Butcher of Vukovar" who was held responsible for the murder of 260 Croats. Despite being well-protected by Serb commandos, Dokmanovic was successfully captured alive (his bodyguards didn't fare so well).

Since GROM's creation 12 years ago, only 4 commandos have been killed in operations. I asked General Petelicki if, during those years, there is one mission that stands out. "Although 70 percent of our operations are still top secret, the one operation I liked best was this last one at Umm Qasr. That was definitely my favorite. [He sighs.] I was jealous I could not be there instead of Colonel Polko [the current commander of GROM]. Umm Qasr was a very risky operation--a lot of explosives were used--but there were no casualties for us." He adds, "I liked it because we were able to help our friends, the Americans, who helped us create GROM. It was a real masterpiece."

http://www.allenprather.com/archives/004064.php


Known operations in which GROM took part:

1991 - GROM operators manages to get out six CIA-agents out of Iraq during the "Desert Storm".

1992 - ,,Macierewicz briefcases" affair (escorting duty during political problems in Poland)

1992 - Assault on residence and arrest of one of the bosses of Art B (Another great political and economic scandal)

1992-93 - Actions against Russian Mafia in Poland (details unknown , but the operation was stopped by the Polish authorities, allegdly because of GROM's overzealous approach to the former KGB agents that turned into mob after the Soviet collaps)

1994 - Operation ,,Restore Democracy" on Haiti The unit saw quite a bit of action during the savage riots.

1996 - UNTAES mission in Eastern Slavonia (arrest of Slavko Dokmanowic - they have since manged to arrest at least six more yugoslavian war-criminals)

1996 - Bodyguard duties during US ambassador W.G Walker's mission in Kosovo and Macedonia

1999 - Bodyguard duties during US ambassador W.G Walker's mission in Kosovo and Macedonia. Also they were (inofficially)reported to operate behind Yugoslavian lines to identyfy artillery fire targets etc.

2000 - Unknown mission in Northern Ireland

2001 - Hunt for war criminals in Kosovo

2001 - Recon mission in Afghanistan before the arrival of Polish troops

2002 - Mission in Afghanistan (VIP bodyguarding and base protecting duties)

2002 - Mission in Persian Gulf. At the beginning of September, some GROM members were seen training on US ships near Bahraim coast.

2003 - GROM soldiers take part in anti-Iraq operation

Known operations in which GROM possibly took part:

1994 - Rescue of four Polish engineers taken hostages in Angola

1995 - Rescue of two Polish officers taken hostages and used as live shields by Bosnian Serbs near Sarajevo

1997 - Arrest of Polish prime minister Jozef Oleksy

1998 - Rescue of five Poles taken hostages in Chechnya in the Caucasus.

Will the Australian PRT operate in Uruzgan? together with the Dutch?

The Dutch are not capable to operate in a country alone. The only reason that we haven't the transport capability. We have 2 (!!) C-130H-30 Hercules and there are always flying. Futher we have 2 KDC-10's and 4 Fokker-60's.

I know but the question was wether they could set up a significant independant force in Afghanistan ... I'd say yes

Australia should be able to do it as well



I've read that ADF contingent will be attached to the Dutch. (or proposed/to be negotiated)

Here is an excerpt from an Australian Govt senate hansard:




Air Chief Marshal Houston—

I imagine that, if a final decision is made to partner with the Dutch, we are looking at 900 Dutch people and 200 Australians. The
200 Australians would essentially be a discrete element within the Dutch disposition. What I am getting at is that I do not see us as being scattered throughout their provincial reconstruction team, rather I see us as being a tight little element that is very much a part of the team but a very Australian element within that team.

BritSig's already appologised - you included it in your quote - he thought (somewhat stupidly p-) ) that you were talking about Poles in MND SE...


Please ignore my post reference the poles, i re-read the article and it says MND-SW not MND-SE, you have my apologies. Sorry m8.

I don't think you'll find anyone in the British armed forces whose worked with the Poles, in Poland, the UK, the Balkans, Afghanistan or Iraq who doesn't have the greatest respect for what the Polish armed forces have done since the fall of communism and anyone with a knowledge of WWII knows the huge contribution made by the free Poles to the Allied cause.

You do not understand my point. I know that most soldiers that were working with Poles have good opinion about them, nice to hear it. I just want them and ordinary people to know what our role was (Ask typical Brit on the street what countries send their forces to Iraq.).

Those numbers in NATO troops are always changing with time, its numbers are from the beggining of 2005, Portugal had 21 troops probably from the air force, i think it was one C-130H plus maintenance ground crew for a few months, from mid 2005 the air force had about 40 persons in comand of the Kabul Airport a few months plus one air force tactical air control party merged with one army commando company (almost 200 troops in total), actually there is only the commando company with the air force TACP (about 150 troops) that are in rotation every 6 months.

Normally the portuguese army forces are infantry (paratroopers, commandos, mech infantry) between company size to battalion size from the 3 army brigades, the majority of the equipement is obsolete from the 1960s, M60 Tanks, G3A3 rifles, only special train troops have more recent material.

The navy sent 1 Frigate Meko 200 with a Lynx helicopter and some times 1 Marines company in support of the army forces, the submarines are 40 years old and a danger, the rest of the navy is ships Coast Guard style with few combat capability.

The Air Force sent 1 C-130H, 1 P-3, the fighters are F-16 A/B so they are also obsolete by NATO padrons, the helicopters (Pumas in the past but recently replace with the EH101 Merlin) primary mission is SAR, they also help the army in training their special units but because the Pumas were in a small number they were never deployed overseas (exept in the 1970s portuguese colonial war in Angola when they were brand new), there are 4 EH101 in a CSAR configuration so probably these will be capable of being sent to NATO missions.

Portugal has forces in Kosovo, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Congo, East-Timor and will be part of the EU force in Lebanon, there are 3 choises:
1- one Navy Frigate
2- one Army engineering company
3- one Army mech infantry company

A nice pic of the same norwegian QRF boys honing their MOUT training whilst being ready to respond to calls from the PRT's in their AO. I don't care, but the G3 can be just as sexy as any other rifle out there when done right. :)

Good pics. One question are those Finnish soldiers using AK style weapons, I know their not AK-47's but they look like their based off of it.


Valmet RK.95
Based originally on the AK, and developed from the previous version RK.62 which the Galil was also based off

Panhard VBL scout cars (long wheel base). They have the PL 12,7 turret. Those with the turret above the passenger seat are from the first batch that had a square hatch over the rear roof, forcing the turret to be located to the front. The VBLs in the first and second pics still have the circular rail mount for the FN MAG instead of the turret. Later batches had the turret installed before delivery in its normal location above the rear roof. The wire cutters/turret anti-wire cages are unique to vehicles serving with ISAF. They are not normally fitted to vehicles still in Greece.
The MS-290GD 1,25t truck in the ninth pic has a SWEdish SATCOM module. The MS-240GD (or maybe 290GD-most external differences are at the rear) 0,25t jeeps carry FN MAGs on the roll bar.

German soldiers attached to Dutch units of 1st GE/NL Corps have been using the Diemaco C7 though, too.

Interesting trivia: The orange blue lanyard, is the so called Invasiekoord "Invasion cord" signifies that this guy is a soldier of the Fusiliers Guardsregiment "Prinses Irene" The Invasion cord was handed out to members of the Prinses Irene Brigade who had taken part in the D-day landings. The tradition is continued by the current Guards Regiment.

where is this guy from?

http://img75.imageshack.us/img75/2114/66dotjpg

He is danish. He's the 2iC of the last danish MOT in PRT MeS and I should know as I was the OiC of the same MOT. The picture is from a PRT exercise with the German helicopters which explains the strange mixture of Danish, Finnish, Swedish and German forces...
