Great video Charlie
Im sure Albania has great SF, but I really bout that they are more experience and better trained then the Croatian, Slovenian, Greek and Serbian SF's.
Actualy i think that albanian sf has more international battle drills then serbia.
Why do you people talk out of your ass? Albanians have started training with the Turkish in 1993. Since that time they have trained with Israeli, Italian, American and German SF. They have been in a lot of military excercises (mostly NATO). Please think before you talk people.What makes you say that?Serbs have 15 years of experience in combat,Croats,Bosnians involved in serious battles,Greeks participate in every peace operation in the area.Albanian army now starts serious training with modern armies like Turkish.
Let's keep it civil......
Well no one is claiming that the albanian armed forces are more prepared than the greeks or the turks or the croatians for that matter. But they are above the Sebian, Macedonians and Bosnians armed forces .....Albnians armed forces joint exercises have began back in 92-93 and since then they have been training with the most prepared and proffesional forces of the world, Such as US Army, Navy, Marines, - British SAS, Royal Marines and Navy - German Infatry, Mechanized Brigades and GSG9 - Italian Army-Navy-Air Force and Police. Turkey and Albania have a mtual agrement that renewes yarly about training. upagrading weaponary, joint exercises, and preparation of CO and NCO home and abroad. Albania has officers in the best military schools throughout the world, in USA alone we have officers being graduated from West Point, Annapolis, and the AF Academy in Colorado, we have pilots being trained in Greece an Turkey in ther AF academys. In turkey they are recieving the same mount of training (flight hours) as their turkish counterparts, cant say the same thing about the greeks. The italian gov and the alb one have a mutual agreement for trining, equiping, and upgrading the current Navy fleet. Also our student exhange program has been in effect since late 93....And most importantly our military academies at home have a high level readiness, and preparation of COs and NCOs. Here is to be mantioned that Albanian Armed forces are undergoing a deep structural/organizational change. That means that all of our soviet-model weaponary and strategic responses will be changed to a more comprehensive, high readiness offensive/deffensive response. More involvment in peacekeeping and SAR missions throughout the world and in the immediate region. Our military industry at home as well is undergoing a tremendous chage that will allow Alb Armd Forces to aquire modern and contemporary weaponry and llogistics, in response to our country's need as well as being part of NATO.
So gentelmen I will proudly say that our armed forces are going in the right dirction, and soon they will be measured as a small, proffesional force that will be able to play a crictical role in the stabilty and secuirty of Albania as well as in the region.
Charlie_Foxtrot313 totally right about it..Turkish-Albanian relitionship rise especially after Enver Sedat..I rememberin some Tv programs about Albania most of people knew Turkish too

Two choices, 1) keep it civil (did not work) so it is now
2) infractions, and maybe close the thread.
