    Hey, I guess we met each other. I was one of the Germans in that place when the Boxers were parked like that.

    Stayed in that place for a total of ~14 days this year. Also a picture of me and my buddy of that OP was running on the DFAC television in CNL

    For comparison, India is apparently going to buy 22 AH-64E for $1.4bn, or ca. $63.6m for each helo. Indonesia, on the other hand, is being offered eight (8) AH-64E for $1.42bn, or ca. 177.5m for each helo, but including engines, Arrowhead turrets, Longbow radars, EW suites, 140 Hellfires, launchers and other armament. Qatar requested the buy of 24 -E's along with a huge load of associated equipment, totalling $3.13bn, or $130.4m each.
    24 Tiger HAD for just €1,5 Bn, big delays, just 6 HAP delivered for the fun, and the weapons are outside the deal, beat that...(And the 1,5 figure is just for now, we started with a 1,35...) We should have bought an F-16 Block 52 squadron to the army.

    What's the saying? "Sweden will fight to the last Finn"?

    I have to admit that sadly I have very few pics of our German friends, but I'll share a couple more with you guys

    First we have the friendly JTACs, whose officer had exceptionally good sense of humor and he instantly picked up on the Finnish way of sick jokes


    The same JTACs just chilling out and preparing for a good night's rest...


    ...and less than 30min later the INS neighborhood watch decided to make us all feel welcome:


    Oh, well they suck at aiming and no harm done but to our sleep.

    And lastly I have to mention one officer, who seemed so very...German to me. Pretty much every time I saw him, he walked around looking like this:

    That runway looks much better maintained than large parts of the roads in the old Bundesländer...

    That man is one hell of a photographer. I'd love to know what kind of a camera he's using. He should give some tutoring to the official Bundeswehr photographers.

    I was looking over the site and couldn't find any info with regards to the (I presume DSLR) camera. I do find it a little funny how he goes to lengths to obscure/hide his face on the page but uploads/links/likes newspaper articles which show with his first name and last name initial.

    They'll need parliamentary permission to be deployed in a warzone.
