    Default Australian and Afghan Soldiers Mentoring Milestone

    The Afghan National Army (ANA) together with their Australian Army mentors and instructors achieved a historic milestone on 26 September 2010 following the successful indirect live firing of D-30 Howitzer artillery guns at the heavy weapons range at the School of Artillery in Kabul, Afghanistan.
    The event marked the inaugural firing of artillery by the first inductee of the Afghan School of Artillery Train the Trainer program, giving the ANA the capability to train Afghan artillery soldiers themselves.



    Warrant Officer Class Two Dave Warren instructs the Afghan National Army (ANA) in positioning the ammunition on the gun line before the School of Artillerie's first indirect live fire.

    It's a bit ridiculous though considering that the "uber" kit that is blurred out is standard fair for Yank infantry.

    Default SUVs for SECDET

    [FONT=Verdana]In 2010, SECDET transitioned from the ASLAV to up-armoured Landcruiser SUVs. The SUVs come in two variants – a 4.2 tonne Series 76 and the 4.6 tonne Landcruiser that the Close Personal Protection team (CPP) uses. For standard escort tasks, they place five troopers in each vehicle – a driver, commander and three operators.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana]
    In what they call a ‘motorcade’, the CPP take the diplomats or VIPs in the other, heavier Landcruisers, with the Counter-Attack Team – the troopers – in the other Series 76s. 31 March 2010[/FONT]
