    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.

    TF Kunduz "on tour" in the Char Darah district. Too bad the video team didn't accompany the other patrol with SPz Marder.

    FOB Hazrat-e-Sultan was closed on October 31, 2012. Since Summer 2011, the base housed an OMLT, which supported a nearby ANA Infantry Kandak. Apparently the Afghans are now able to take care of the situation on their own.
