    The Enok is nice, but 5.4 to? Hope the weight is worth the extra protection.

    Appearance is one thing, protection is another. (no helmet for the crew of the Spz)

    Give me a rest, Weasel.
    You're always complaining about non-issued equipment - and in just the next sentence you complain about vehicle crews not wearing helmets. This is just the f'cking dilemma we are facing. There simply is no helmet issued with earphones+microphone and connection to vehicle comms. Crews have to decide wether they were unprotected headsets with the benefit of being able to communicate or wear a plain simple helmet w/o comms, except for the few dozen issued headset that can be worn with the helmet but offer no ear protection.

    Or buy your own ***** that you mustn't wear because you represent Germany at the back of beyond...

    These guys made the right choice. Wirkung vor Deckung, might ring a bell. And once the fighting begins, hatches are being closed and thankfully you can't see what anyone wears on his head.

    I don't care to which unit the officer belongs. That "trageweise" is simply ****ed up. Compare it to how every other shown soldier does it. Whatever...lets not start the Kettenhunde discussion.

    Ah...that you are in Kunduz does not mean that you are a good soldier in general. Hauptmaenner tend to forget how to do things because they do mostly other stuff back home.

    Just look at that photo. Of course his "Tragesweise" is ****ed up. That whole pic looks so staged, both soldiers look like life-size Revell plastic models. He has only two hands so it´s just normal that his rifle is haning down next to his body. But I´m fairly sure that this photo was taken in a relatively safe environment to please the photographer.
    Being in Kunduz alone doesn´t make you a good soldier but these guys know where they´re going and believe it or not, Feldjaeger aren´t just chilling in their MP station, they go out and take fire, too. Therefore I can´t imagine that even though he´s a Hptm he doesn´t know how to handle a rifle. You know, there´s atleast a certain amount of training before deployment and I´m sure he´s smart enough to train that before going to former Bad Kunduz...
    Long story, short: Don´t judge a soldiers skills by one photo which also looks staged as hell...

    Note the second G3 in the CQB-role.... Cool.

    Agreed! Thanks for the pics.
    More and more G3s are finding their way to Afghanistan. Would be interesting to read some field reports on how the "old" rifle compares to the "new" one in this environment.

    I could add the other photo where he walks on that road. But anyway, this topic is for photos, not discussion.

    He guys, did anyone of you thought that he is left handed and if u want to wear the g36 on such a sling as a left handed person it looks like that but it works.

    And please stop those gear discussions. If u are in a mission (out in country or in a training area) u wear stuff that fits your needs. and if your superior does not complain everything is fine.

    @weasel: U cant be serious with your criticism of the guys in the Marder wearing comms and therefor no helmet

    There we go again You remember the Pictures with the Soldier wearing a black RSA assault vest? Worse quality than Army issued equipment, not suitable (G36-Magazines do not fit) and wrong Color (using black to look cool). And the Pictures are numerous...

    He's probably using a privately acquired one point sling. In combination with such a device his handling of the rifle is just fine...
