    Yeah, I know, although there are always some officers that don't think like that....

    Just found a documentary, which is just a few weeks old from Jungs last visit, looks like pretty good footage:

    Warning, some graphic content, they even show a dead soldier.











    Some of our guys down there... Jesus...

    Then let them have a look at 37/10! the only part of this regulation that deals with Gefechtsdienst states which papers and other things you have to carry with you.

    Does anybody know if they're still using the Wiesel/Fennek in Afghanistan?
    I haven't seen them on any pictures for a long time now.

    Were they retired or is this just coincidence?


    Thanks in advance!

    Fennek is still in Afghanistan afaik.

    Wiesel have once been and have been pulled out end of 2006-beginning 2007. (That was what a Wieselguy told me) Don't know if they're back again

    Thanks for the good pictures.

    I guess we can legitimately reckon now that the badass paras in question were indeed members of the Fallschirmjägerspezialzug. One more good reason for them not to give a **** about the 37/10.

    Are you sure about that? They are wearing IDZ-Bodyarmor. I was under the impression, FschJgSpezZg are issued the Schutzweste Spezialkräfte: http://daten.bwb.org/AG-Bund/TL/Daten/84700068_3.pdf
