wow. some pretty H Hittin hardware the chileans have. dont they do trainig stuff with us (NZ?) when were the Shermans retired?
Would someone know when the Chilean marines adopted the H&K HK33A4 assault rifle? Also, has anyone a clear photo of the underbarrel grenade launcher seen mounted on some of their rifles? It looks similar to the Singaporean patterns . . . Many thanks!
I like that picture, look like something from Star wars (aka; Darth Vader )
Do you know where this picture was taken? I think I may have seen this ship in the San Diego Bay in California, USA.
...and one of them was mod locally for transport/vip use. It really is not the ideal a/c for the Chilean Navy. The C295MP will be a much better fit.

I believe it is an official video (propaganda, if you like) released during the national holidays.

Hear she was trashing the Exocet's and getting fitted for Harpoons. Any further info on that??

Yes, the mountings for Harpoon canisters have been already tested/installed aboard the ship. Perhaps they will be fitted as in Batch 3 RN Type 22s.

Hey guys, looking for some good quality pics of the "Comandos de la Infanterķa de Marina". A link maybe?
In the Armada web page there isn't much.
The only ones I found in the net are those with pro-tecs and MP5s in a UNITAS exercise.

www.booksofchile.cl/detalle.php?opcion=1@1d=17 (an excellent book on Cuerpo infanteria de Marina de la Armada de Chile)
There's some suff on youtube.com under 'Armada de Chile','Comandos Chilenos','Infanteria de Marina' etc. Also, have you googled 'Infanteria de marina de la Armada de chile'? You'd be quite surprised at what turns up under both 'text' and 'images'.
Thanks mate! Yep done all of the above, seen a couple of Comandos vids in youtube (I'm looking for stills though), search several spanish speaking forums and got close to nil in pics of the Comandos.
