    It is quite disconforting seeing that soldier involved in exercitation still wear old uniform and evaluators and officials wear the new one.

    P.S.
    I'm Marcellogo but as far as my account get to be blocked during the cancellation i'm using my mother's account.
    I think more persons befell in the same inconvenient.

    Also the AT-4 in photo is a Miles laser tag designator mock up.
    However Wiki states (citing Jane's) that Croatia has effectively AT-4 in its ****nal.

Alert on a floating vessel received by National Centre for Search and Rescue in Rijeka. Was asked to engage with the aircraft Pilatus PC-9 and the rescue ship "Faust Vrančić" to search this area and find floating rescue boat. PC-9 aircraft, "Pilatus" flew today around 11.30 am from the air base Zemunik and after an hour locate the rescue boat and sent alerts to rescue ship "Faust Vrančić" which was at that moment was a few nautical miles away. Upon arrival of the ship "Faust Vrančić" to float rescue boat, it was found that the boat was empty and Navy divers have to check possible damage to vessel so they could than tow it to the port of Gruz-Dubrovnik.

    The kick is some form of "knight christening"?

    Pretty much, yeah. You get it for first solo (on every new aircraft) and 1st, 50th, 100th, etc. parachute jump. Everyone with more experience can kick you, so if you're unfortunate enough to have a crowd gather that has nothing better to do, well... Good luck sitting down for a day or two. If you're especially lucky and there's a huge workload on everyone, they might forget, in which case you're in the clear as you can only get kicked on the day the milestone was flown or jumped.

    First you shake hands and are congratulated for courage and skill, and then the more experienced pilot or paratrooper kicks you in the ass (that's why he's holding his hand in the photo).
