I wonder why Russian sources are totaly inacurate regarding Georgian military equipment. Looks like MIA is doing quite a good job ....
On serious note:
- Is Georgia mass producing antitank mines?
- Is Georgian infantry (on platoon level) trained to use antitank mines?
P.S. what the hell is that “Chapayevskaja tachanka” concept with 2 MG in the rear (0:48 parade trailer)?
There are allways at least one, sometimes two engineer/pioneer platoon specialized on explosives, anti-tank warfare, mine-clearing etc as support in an infantry company. Rifle platoons are allways equipped with RPGs and some do also have explosives specialists.
Yea that Didgori-3(?) looks realy strange. It would have been better, if it had a mortar platform there instead.
some side info: For anyone who wonders where the Georgian army gets it's uniforms and material from:
Georgia currently produces it's own fabricates and makes whole uniform sets starting with the combat boots, to the cloth up to boonies. All Made in Georgia only.

Ok, some MOD info about controversal military formations. This will help to divide them as many though all were part of Special Forces.
This is not 1st or 13th LIB. This is some kind of light infantry with special role, like peacekeeping and maritime offensives. You can simply say, it's the marine infantry.Separate Light Infantry Battalion Commander of the Battalion is LTC Jemal Todua. The Battalion is ready to carry out full
range of combat operations. The Battalion personnel can be also used as marine landing

size unit is serving in Kabul, Afghanistan as part of the French military contingent.

I wonder why Georgia doesnt help to arm the Syrian opposition. They could earn some money and find a first market for their domestic production. In the same move they could harm their arch enemy Russia...
Maybe Georgia already does? Would only be logical from Georigias point of view IMO.
I'm serious. The opposition has to buy the weapons somewhere. The Saudis currently tunnel a lot of money towards the opposition so they can buy ammo and weaponry. The Russians sell weapons to Assad, so why shouldn't Georgia sell weapons to the FSA?
I bet the USA would green light that so they don't have to get their hands dirty.
