    Short video about life on Height 432. Rather short and a bit superficial, but still interesting to see the Spartan conditions of that combat outpost. Must be pretty uncomfortable, especially in winter...


    Btw, is it just me or is there no red-dot sight mounted on this soldiers rifle?

    It's a Bundeswehr vid! Why oh why can't they get their facts straight? We rant about news reporters that can't tell an assault rifle from a machine gun but it shows we can't actually blame them if the get their stuff out of official vids.
    Agreed. Nice G3ZF though.

    One Dingo, two Fenneks and a few soldiers, observing OMF movement in "Indianerland":
    Bundeswehr.de released two videos that show the daily life in a temporary reconnaissance outpost. The videos show the use of Fennek scout vehicles and Aladin light-weight recon drone. Quite interesting!

    Some scenes from Afghanistan and an interesting article about German Army "Panzergrenadiers" serving in Northern Afganistan.


    On patrol with Marder IFV and Fuchs APC.





    MSgt. Stephan, the IFVs commander scans the surroundings, while the patrol moves through Kunduz-City.



    An Afghan Security Forces checkpoint in the outskirts of Kunduz-City.

    The patrol moves slowly through the town, always surrounded by locals.




    For our geardos: Note the FLW200 with .50cal sMG, the commanders helmet, the Marders Barracuda camouflage and the EOTech sight on his rifle.
    The article has some flaws and wrong captions, but otherwise is quite interesting to read and gives a good insight into the daily life of our soldiers, without exaggerating things.

    Well,he might be right. Northern Afghanistan is in some places a very very cold place.

    MQ shots of German troops during clashes with Taliban in the notorious southwestern region of Kunduz Province. Note the damaged Fennek.

    Excellent pictures, muck, thanks for posting.

    Looks like there have been casualties? Speedy recovery.
    I think this could have been a multi-national convoy. I can spot a Humvee with a gun turret. And I'm actually surprised to see a Wolf - I thought there weren't used outside the camps because of lacking survivability?

    Agreed, great pictures.
    Steak-Sauce, our Military Police for example are still using "Wolf SSA" models. I´m not sure about other branches, though, but I remember talking to an EOD StUffz who told me that they´re using them in Afghanistan, too. AFAIK they´re going to be replaced by Enoks.

    The ENOK already is in AFG - last September, one of them was disabled by IED while on patrol in the Kunduz area.

    The ENOK is a part of the GFF1 program and meant to replace the various uparmored G-Wagons for use outside the wire, they won't replace the EAGLE IV which is part of the GFF2 program.
