    This is no pilot but one of our doorgunners (see his rank). This photo was taken during an exercise with KSK and the SOF-Air element CH-53 crews. After a forced landing you dismount the MGs to secure the landing site. Unfortunately this ain't possible with the heavy M3M. We're trying to find a solution for that case because this is the equipment being used in Afghanistan. There is no MG3 anymore.

    German president Joachim Gauck visiting Israel; his adjutant (notice the beret badge and commando patch on his chest) is a KSK soldier.

    (No PERSEC violation; the picture comes from an official source and his gorget patches are the crimson ones of a general staff officer). It's a kind of debut; so far, only the respective General of the Special Forces would wear the uniform in public.

    Some nice pictures of Kampfschwimmer.

    courtesy of SpOn:

    Sägefisch, Fallschirm und Eichenlaub - das Abzeichen der Kampfschwimmer. Auf dem Truppenübungsplatz im brandenburgischen Lehnin trainieren sie Häuserkampf.

    Einsatzbesprechung: Die Ortskampfanlage 1 in Lehnin heißt im Übungsszenario Rauhberg - ein Dutzend Straßen, etwa 70 Häuser. Die Kampfschwimmer sollen ein Hochhaus am Ortsende einnehmen.

    Dienstwagen der Kampfschwimmer: der leicht gepanzerte Mowag Eagle, ein neun Tonnen schwerer Transporter auf der Basis des amerikanischen Humvee.

    "Einsickern" heißt die erste Phase der Operation - unentdeckt an den Zielort heranpirschen, immer in Deckung, immer schussbereit.

    Der Ablauf ist hundertfach einstudiert: Deckung geben, vorrücken, Deckung geben, nachrücken.

    Rund 30 Kilogramm schultern die Kampfschwimmer bei ihren Einsätzen - Waffen, Munition, Funkgerät, Splitterweste - und der Breacher schleppt sogar einen Vorschlaghammer mit, um am Ziel die Tür einzuschlagen.

    Erstes Ziel der Operation - die Bäckerei von Rauhberg, ein Waffen****nal des Feinds. Die Stahltür wird gesprengt, das Gebäude gestürmt.

    Scharfschützen sichern das Vorrücken der Häuserkämpfer.

    OKA 1, die Ortskampfanlage 1 in Lehnin, ist als Ruinenstadt gebaut - mit Häusern ohne Dächer und Fenster. Gefechtslärm kommt aus Lautsprechern, der Feind existiert nur als Simulation - ferngesteuerte Scheiben klappen in den Fensterhöhlen hoch.

    Ziel Nummer zwei, das Gerichtsgebäude von Rauhberg: Wieder wird die Tür mit einer Sprengladung aufgebrochen.

    Als die Insurgents aus dem Wald hinter Rauhberg attackieren, fordern die Kampfschwimmer Verstärkung aus der Luft an: BO-105-Helikopter, auf den Kufen stehen Scharfschützen, die den Weg für den Rückzug freischießen.

    Rückzug aus Rauhberg, Kampfschwimmer sichern den Abtransport eines Verwundeten. Ihre Standardwaffe ist das G-36-K- Sturmgewehr.

    Ein Verwundeter, die Kampfschwimmer fordern den großen CH53-Hubschrauber vom Heer an, der über den Wäldern hinter Rauhberg auf Stand-by kreist.

    Hauptbootsmann Lauf, Regisseur der Übung, erklärt in der Nachbesprechung, was gut geklappt hat und was schiefgelaufen ist.

    Cool pictures - but good God Multicam has arrived in the German military at last... I bet some brass observers cringed on the sight. Not 37/10 approved!
