    What's that supposed to mean? The G28 is indeed an expensive piece of equipment but how does that render it unusable for everyday service?

    They also forgot to cut out that part where someone calls him by his first name.

    And the swastika on the makeshift table right at the start.

    Well, it's the highly informational "Galileo", but the "Strategie & Technik" - magazine referred to this unit as the ASSIK - Arbeitsstab Schutz in Krisengebieten when they introduced it about a year ago with a big article.

    Has it been renamed or is it just a matter of bad background information at the TV-Show.

    That German Police special forces "are not allowed" to use the G-36 inside Germany seems like another bull**** story ... may not be available to "normal Police", but that is a completely differend story. I hate such inaccuracies ...

    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.

    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?

    I think it's rather unfortunate that they don't have interpreters who speak German as well. A curious thing though, since there are surprisingly many Afghans who speak German.
