    good to see the blokes over there hooking in.
    even if they got any kills, i doubt the Aussie DoD would want that kinda info out there, some civvy might have a f*kn sook over it.
    Nice post mate..

    but the Taliban was known to have suffered casualties.
    I wonder if those 72's hit? That is a fair gob to have up. "Yeah I took out some Taliban with my 72!". It was rare a rocking horse **** to fire one in training once.

    Just saw the video of it again on the news. Almost every soldier in the video is carrying a 66. Most people seem to have ACOGs too. What happened to the wildcat (elcan) scopes?

    Well at least they will be able to use the footage and After action review to improve the training they give. Thats one positive.

    The introduction of the ACOG/Aimpoint/EOTech is all a part of the Land 125 Soldier Enhancement Program: Phase 3.

    Maby you can say what was wrong?
    I think it would be better if we didn't quarterback it any further. What myself and Digrar said is that there was some worrying skills. I personally don't think it should go any further. At the end of the day they survived and as previously mentioned they do have the vid for reference.. For anyone that has ever been in a twoway range situ things do seem/go alot different.

    You didnt have to go that far mate. I wasn't meaning to have a go at you. I just didn't want to see this discussion go down hill with guys commenting on stuff they know nothing about.
