    G28, nice! Have seen them in action earlier this year in the hands of mountaineers on a German shooting range and I´m really suprised to already see them deployed. Looks like sometimes the Bundeswehr actually is fast at procurring and implementing new hardware. Nice.

    ESB.
    Problem is as the war in Afghanistan is over (at least as far as the ministry is concerned) there won't be any further approvals of ESB materiel.
    60mm mortars were high on the list for ESB but no chance apparently.

    Might have been preference? I still saw some with the m43 style on.

    C-160 Transall flying in Afghanistan. Note the electronic warfare equipment, OPSEC measures in the cockpit, and partly American pax in the back. The title is also a bit interesting: "11.000 PS in the air" is the combined power of both engines. That's being produced by a single TP400, and our future transport aircraft will have four of them.

    No. As per currently valid regs only the "m43 style" - more correctly known as "field duty cap" - and boonie hats or berets are allowed to be worn.

    With a little bit of luck we'll see the A400Ms in service just in time to commence our bug out plan.

    Interestingly the clock on the yoke is the same model as in WW2 Luftwaffe aircraft.
    Generally the instrumentation is very classic.

    Does anybody know more about the nSAK?. Like its history? Did it start as a private initiative or was it copied and right away melted into a ZDv and then introduced?

    Also notice the G28 at 0:47.
    I´m actually quite excited to see how Faizabad will fare, now that the BW is out. AFAIK it´s one of the quieter districts in our AOR, but that doesn´t mean it´ll stay calm.
