    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.

    €dit: Aye, #1908.

    Enok in Afghanistan? It seems to be missing its armament (if it was intended to have one).
    And why are they using a big-ass crane to pull the vehicle from the flatbed? Couldn't they have simply driven the Enok from the trailer?

    Maybe it didn't have any fuel in it but then no hydraulics for brakin gand steering in 5,5t vehicle. The FKL and FKM are often used to pull things around: In this case I guess because of it's attachment points on the front and the uneven "ramp"

    I think they are pushing it on the trailer rather than off.

    To be honest, I'm not sure anymore if they are pulling or pushing.

    Picture from 2011, hope it's no repost:

    Wouldn't make sense to pull it down this way. I'd guess the vehicles are connected by a tow-bar. The sling attached to the front of the crane is misleading here.
