    Thanks, but I'd say credits to those who made the pictures. I just collected them
    Der Thread bei Waffen-HQ ist der Hammer. Echt super, dass du alle Bilder zusammengetragen hast!

    Look at the rifle at the right. It looks as it it has iron-sights. And it's camoed. Another thing that puzzles me: from that perspective, it looks really short, not like a full-size G36. Any explanations?

    Nice combo, not seen very often these days: G36 and HK69




    Can you ID the vest? So many pouches? Perhaps some sort of EOD-vest? Or a medic?



    HK GMG




    Dutch KCT




    That looks like some wild-west-movie-scne to me...

    That rifle is a G22 (AI Arctic Warfare Magnum with folding stock, cal. 300 Win Mag).
    It's just pointed nearly directly at the camera, that's why it looks so short.

    It looks to me like one of those ****ty copies of the South-African assault vest made by miltec, something like this.
    I have no idea why anyone would actually use such a thing...

    Waht do you mean with "the crap on flecktarn.co.uk"?

    I just took a look at their their shop and it seems to me they offer mostly genuine issue equipment plus stuff made by KHS, which is a imgo the best gear manufacturer in Germany.
    Of course, there are some crappy items, mostly made by "Mil-Tec" in the shop as well, but not too many.

    Great pics. Just a general questions with anyone that has some info in regards to it. I remember the german military rejecting the C17 transport as being too expensive... does anyone hav figures on how much the german army has to pay for all the weekly heavy lifts to afghanistan? Add to that the trips for this tsunami relief (i think they were building a mobile hospital, and the russians all of the sudden doubled their prices) Does anyone have # of flights, cost per flight etc comparison to a C17 purchase? I think the UK bought some C 17s....did that work out for them?
    Thanks
