    Last thing i was hoping to see an awesome footage of soo secret our special forces. Well done, thx Lithuanian brother

    repost(from:http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/on-the-...an-part-two/2/)
    "Hell’s Angels — Lithuanian Style:
    U.S. and Afghan soldiers in Zabul Province give high marks to the Lithuanian Special Forces, who like to ride these captured Taliban motorbikes to sneak up on, and chase Taliban fighters. The “LithSof” are on their way to becoming living legends: Both Afghans and Americans report that the Taliban are afraid of the Lithuanians. Stories about them are filled with dangerous escapades and humor.
    Americans say that the Lithuanians are sort of a weaponized version of Borat, who think nothing of sauntering around a base in nothing but flip-flops and underwear. “They look like mountain men. They never shave, sometimes don’t bathe, and often roll out the gate wearing nothing but body armor and weapons. Not even a t-shirt,” an American soldier told me. The Lithuanians may be a little bit nuts, but the Americans love to have them around because Lithuanians love to fight, and when you need backup, you can count on them. That contrasts starkly with many of the NATO “partners.” Maybe when your country spends almost a half-century with the Soviet boot on its neck, its first generation of free soldiers know what freedom is worth — and that you sometimes have to fight for it."

    just can't be more proud after reading this.

    Nevertheless, I've made some photos

    Yes. Lithuania got a rather big number of M113's from Germany.

    Cheers mate !

    I realise know that almost every military that uses the G3 brings about 6 mags, is that all that is needed, or is weight a problem?

    For lithunian case, we got AK4 (G3) from Sweden and there was one gun with three mags. I think, because when everubody got 3 more mags it was said that they are taken from storage.
    Sorry for my bad english
