    Question ID: US Special Forces with Chetnik flag (possible fake?)



    I saw this photo recently supposedly of American special forces in Afghanistan holding the flag of the Serbian Chetniks. It looks quite fake to me but I'm also wondering if that is the case, what the original flag was? I tried to run the image through Google to find the same photo with a different flag but I don't get any results.

    Hope it's alright to post this here, wasn't sure which section to post it in but since it's a photo it probably belongs here...

    Cheers.

    SF doesn't run 416's, use crappy aftermarket Grip Pod thingie's, run a PEQ15 on the bottom rail, and they sure as **** know how to close an ejection port cover. My guess is Norwegians.

    Oh, and C More optics? LOL.

    They definitely aren't Army SF (Green Berets). Also pretty unlikely that they are Americans period, unless they grabbed those weapons just for the photo.

    You'd be surprised.

    Agreed on them probably being Norwegians.

    I forgot to say I'm not very well versed in the differences between the units of American armed forces and gear, so forgive my ignorance there.

    Don't worry about that. Unless you're in the business or an airsoft walt, there really isn't much need to.

    Nothing about their gear, weaponry or appearance suggest they are Norwegians. We are not the only ones that operate the HK416 and HK417 platforms.
