    This seems to be frontline which is mostly stagnating for a week now with scout groups reportingly penetrating from time to time loyalist defence positions just to retreat when they are spotted



    Housing complex on eastern side which is under rebel control is called New Brega and was built for employees of Sirte oil company. Together with Brigh Star University it is only confirmed urban complex that is beeing held by rebels although I read something about them beeing in Area 2 (first housing complex west of the line) but that was not confirmed by any medias so I take it for another fake rumour. Port, airport and oil field is beeing held by loyalist forces who reportedly dwindled in numbers but still there is enough of them to hold the line (before the attack reports were talking about 3 to 7 000 soldiers manning this position)



    Artillery line was established in Bish, area in the circle.

    All in all those lines are subject to change, commanders doesnt seem to provide much info lately to journalist and only Al Jazeera Arabic journalists were permitted (or wanted) to go on frontline.

    If Nato were at all on the ball they'd drop a training round right on his crotch. Just to say Hi.

    Its BMP-1, the barrel is to short to be the 30MM gun on the BMP-2 and the turret is too small.

    I'm sure it's for medicinal purposes..... Or maybe it had been the booty of some of the non-Muslim mercs?

    A rebel fighter stands at his position on the outskirts of Zlitan near Misrata's western frontline July 24, 2011.

    A rebel fighter keeps watch as pro-Gaddafi forces approach on the outskirts of the Bir-Ayyad gate near the city of Zintan in the western mountains, 120 km (75 miles) southwest of the capital Tripoli, July 23, 2011.

    Other than he's using a MAG tripod, no. What do you mean?


    I find the BFA on the FAL rather interesting though

    This video shows alot of different rebel armor types heading towards Brega. Anyone want to identify the number and types of armor shown in the vid?

    P.S - ignore the blatant propoganda in the title.

    Another video that looks to be from the push on Zlitan happening now. Technicals exchange fire with a Daffy vehicle. One takes a hit or near miss from something, sending the gunner flying, and the rebels call in armor support in response.
