    IDK but I see dudes wearing knee pads and stuff. Did anybody tell these guys they are going to land in some big base in afghan and not in the middle of taliban country? relax dudes lol. Yeah PPE is required when flying into country but those soldiers took it to heart. I flew in a C130 to Camp Dwyer, and heck even the food there was better than the one in Camp Lejeune back in the states haha. Now, once they push out to their respective AOs, thats when the real deployment starts.

    The EOD guy is wearing Merrell sneakers. Pretty sure same model as mine. As far as food goes, we get lobster every Sunday, and in general the food is amazing for being free messhall in a warzone.

    Canadian's have seemingly been issued SORD kit on a larger scale than I was aware.
    the stacking of a water bottle in an ammo pouch on the flap of a 200rd pouch is interesting.
    He appears to be flying low as well....

    Until today I used to think that "d" version (Longbow) of AH-64 has additional radar installed over it's main rotor...

    There two kinds of "Ds", the Longbow has a radar while the "plain" has the provisions for it. It was to be called "C" IIRC

    I do believe that was originally the plan. However all of the "C's" could be "D's" with the inclusion of attaching the radar, so for clarity they just dropped the idea for all of the potential admin screw up's that could come around. US Longbows sometimes leave the radar off to reduce the all up weight they are flying around in Afghanistan. The UK Longbow has more powerful engines and thus can carry the radar, although other than terrain following and possible air deconfliction (as in not running into a UAV) I am not sure what benefit it has had for the AAC.
