    Hey Czechmate67 I take it this is your channel? http://www.youtube.com/user/Czechmate1967


    July 16 - Heavy clashes between rebels and forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi broke out on Saturday in Libya's Western Mountains. Jon Decker reports.

    Anyone want to translate what the reporter is saying?

    There are 3 fronts in Misrata
    First, west of Dafniya and part of zlitan. Second one, south, Zlod and abdel raouf where the rebel claimed they captured 11 soldiers and finally, the southern fron, Kararim, where the rebels claimed they repealed an attack of the LA.

    The Misrata front is still very active and the rebels are plan to get control of Zlitan and Khoms.
    50 killed and 300 injured.

    Not clear right now, no journalist allowed on frontline, rebels lost today 10 men and got more than 170 injured, Brega is heavily mined, NATO is pounding loyalist troops in town and in Bishr, some reports say that rebel army was able to surround the town and rockets are falling like rain from both sides, other that they captured Bright Star university and are trying to enter town. One way or another, there are heavy battles ongoing and Brega has not been yet captured.

    Some more clips from Brega:


    Outgoing rebel tanks and 107mm rocket fire.


    Incoming loyalist fire screams overhead. Note the black contrails of outgoing BM-21 rockets in the distance.


    Looks like a couple of enemy rounds landed pretty close to rebel positions in this vid.


    Line of rebel armor. Can anyone identify the vehicle types?

    O.k, I did a little research and the first vehicles look like 2S1 Gvozdika 122mm self-propelled artillery. Still not sure what the tracked APCs are though.

    The rebel has taken the eastern part of Brega before, the question is have they also taken the old town in the west together with the oil facilities and the port. The rebels hasn't be able to push past the university area in middle in their previous attempts to take Brega.

    Looks like it could be a variant of the BTR-50PK. That and the M113 are the only tracked APCs I've found for the Libyan Army

    Considering 2S1 it is 1V13-1 or 1V14-1.

    Very useful beasts donkeys (and mules) esp. in mountainous regions. The British army has been employing mules in Afganistan. (and not for recreation!)
