    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.

    Yes, every soldier who goes out of the wire is issued a P8 as a backup weapon. Once the new marksmanship course (nSAK) has been introduced breadthwise it will even start to make sense.
