    Well, it's the tank platoon + combat engineers, medics, recovery, tacp, ew, some logistics. Pretty much makes up company strength.

    How many tanks currently in Afghanistan and how many do you have overall in the Army? 1 or 2 battalions worth?

    We got 5 tanks in Afghanistan. Three on operation, one in reserve and one under maintainances. We only got 3 tank squadrons left with 11 tanks in each(1 battalion).. 33 active tanks in all.. and about 25 in stores. Just enough to keep a platoon out on IntOps permanently.. or 2 squadrons deployed for 6 months each, 1 year total.

    But if a situation calls for it, we could deploy a tank squadron supported by 9035 and infantry.. but for a limited amount of time.

    The link has already been posted in the Danish Military thread, but it is certainly relevant for this thread as well.
    The documentary series "Min krig" (My war) about the Danish troops fighting in Helmand, almost all the footage was filmed with the troops' own helmet cams.

    First episode of 4 is online now. Second episode will probably be available later tonight.

    First episode (entitled "Surrounded by Taliban"):
