    Default Macedonian Armed Forces - photo and video thread

    I've decided to try and make a thread about the military of the country known to some as the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, or FYROM, and to others simply as Republic of Macedonia. I could fail miserably, and this thread could be hijacked by those wanting to discuss the Macedonia naming dispute. If that happens, I'm asking the moderators to perform a mercy kill on the thread.

    But, gents, let's try and not let that happen, eh?

    Anyway, here goes:

    As an aside, in those pics of them with the Americans trying out each others weapons, the ACU really seems to be working.

    The convoy, the daf trucks ,btr 80-s they are part of the action that took place near a tetovo village(forgot the name)......and i know it were the "lions" that participated in that action.......also all that equipment was part of the "lions" unit......nvm the patches.....at the begining of tetovo clashes the army SF had police patches because of the constitution article which banned use of military units without declaring state of war .....

    Don't know about the trucks, but the convoy pics are from 2003, so it wasn't made during the conflict. As for the BTR-80s, I saw the Special Police using them in the recent arrests of separatists in the Sar Planina region.
