    Is it just me, or is that barrel plugged with something?

    I really, really hope someone gives them a lesson in how to camouflage themselves. That is awful to see.

    Would you believe me if I was thinking you will come and say that, just 2 minutes ago?

    Awful indeed, they look like crap not soldiers.

    I wonder to whom Gefen is attached now. They look like reservists.

    Gefen is a battalion in BAHAD1, that's the reason for the crap gear.

    Ok, got it.
    Anyway, they look kind of funny in other ways other than the crap gear, are they kravi?

    Pretty sure everyone in Gefen is kravi, but I can't remember exactly how that system worked.
    The barrel of the gun you were asking about is either taped with black electrical tape or has a black plastic cover over it so mud and dirt doesn't get up the barrel.
