    HK121 is the internal designation for the German Army's new general purpose machine gun MG5.

    Those G8s are basically magazine fed HK21s and they're original weaponry. Dating back the days of leftist RAF terror and due to "exceptionalist" policies, the Bavarian police used to be quite martially equipped with machine guns and even hand grenades.

    Gedenken am Ehrenhain. Der Bundesminister der Verteidigung, Thomas de Maizière, ist zu einem Überraschungsbesuch in Afghanistan eingetroffen. Er landete am Morgen im Feldlager Kundus, wo er sich ein Bild von der Lage machte und mit deutschen Soldaten sprach. Es ist der siebte Besuch de Maizières am Hindukusch seit seinem Amtsantritt vor 16 Monaten. Begleitet wird er vom sächsischen Ministerpräsidenten Stanislaw Tillich.

    Official EKT-video about de Maizière's Afghanistan visit in German. He's largely talking about the difficult task to transport a lot of vehicles and material back to Germany, and about a German presence post-2014 to help with the training of Afghan forces:



    Anyone noticed that abandoned / damaged / destroyed MAN-like truck in the background during the interview?

    A German soldier ©, accompanied by an Afghan translator in a German uniform, talks to an inhabitant of the village Arab Sher Ali in northern Chahar Darrah in this April 24, 2012 file photo. The soldiers wanted to find out about the mood among the Afghans, and were also looking for information after two Belgian soldiers were wounded by an IED the day before in neighbouring Qara Yatim village. The German military lost more soldiers in this region due to fights and attacks than at any other place since the end of World War II. After years of fighting, the district is relatively stable now. But as international combat troops prepare to leave Afghanistan by the end of 2014, many Afghans in Chahar Darrah fear the return of the Taliban. *******/Sabine Siebold

    I'm pretty sure this video is already known and has been posted before, given it was uploaded in January. Nice footage, though.
