    Let's hope so. But more than likely, it will only encourage them to build larger IEDs like they did to kill the Marder several weeks ago.

    Agree... I suppose S-60 AA gun can be placed on top of it, not some .50 cal MG

    Here we go:


    Orpheus - Occupy Chahar Darah
    In late October 2011 Kunduz based 3.Task Force started a several days operation in and around Nawabad (District Chahar Darah), west of Kunduz, northern Afghanistan.
    During the Operation Orpheus about 100 german infantry troops rolled out for joint patrols with an afghan platoon through the town and surrounding areas, which were expected as a retreat zone of insurgents.
    A rising presence of ISAF aims to push out remaining Taliban by occupying this former insurgent held region of Chahar Darah. Soldiers talk to locals, recruit informers, do car checks and try to figure out essential needs of Nawabads local population.





    "Freedom of Movement"-Patrol




    Consequences would have been fatal for the crew. After an armored Dingo accidentally lost it´s right way through a ford, it was pretty close to roll aside into deep water. Comrades of the related ECHO platoon rescue passengers and vehicle.






    An unfortunate day for ECHO. Just minutes after the ford accident, a new built bridge is blocked and two Dingo vehicles stuck in a muddy field. A sandstorm blows strongly and whirls clay dust into every chink. While a wheeled tank get the Dingos out of mess, remain soldiers have to cover the area around with 15 meters in sight.

    The day begins by dedicating a 40mm-grenade to a fallen comrade.

    The rest of the slide are pictures from a foot patrol in Nawabad. The captions suck and the photographer isn't really an ace in English so I left them out...
