True that. I merely anticipated what Hornet was getting at.

What say you - is the source of the problem a cultural one or rather actual sympathy for the insurgency and its "ideals"?

Most just go with whoever has the upper hand at the moment, few of the green on blue incidents involved actual infiltrators even if the Taliban likes to claim otherwise. A lot of Afghanistan is divided along tribal lines and the Taliban is not a tribe. But looking at them in the wrong way or using a tone of voice that sounds disrespectful to them makes them go ballistic. It's really the same for young Turkish or Morrocan people in Western Europe. The mindset is geared towards being seen as tough and make people respect you to achieve and maintain status. A typical case of a tribal culture, Homo Respectus tiredsmiley.gif

You can lob 30mm HEDP at them until their limbs come off, but you can't off them with a 9mm pistol after they've hung bits of your dead mates from trees. Funny old world. Strikes me as someone making the mistake of getting caught on camera.

Hornet, man... we two know that the ANP/ANA are talibans with pants and a helmet or a cap instead a towel in most cases, and sure that we think the same about their presence in this world; but aside of that... have you heard or seen something about the DAF buying M60E6 in replace the GPMGs?, on the paper looks like a good deal, but we also know how the yankees sell their crap; the only good thing that they've done was the M1911, that was made by an english and a gelgium. What you think about that deal?, you trust in an M60E6 as a better support weapon than an MG5?.

Fairly ironic I'd say. They've gone from using one of the best MGs in the world, the MG42 (MG3) to using it's retarted offspring the M60 otherwise known as "sh*t it broke in two again, need to exit the field to drop by the spare parts container. What? We're in close contact with the enemy? Well too bad for the rest of the squad because during sustained fire I need three replacement extractors a minute since it keeps cracking after the first 25rds". How on earth do you take the MG42 and end up with the M60 after millions spent on redesigning something that didn't need redesigning in the first place ... ohnoo.gif

Likely procurement procedure:
1. We need a new machine gun
2. Hey, what was that gun in Rambo?
3. Get that.

In the testing they fired 28000 rounds in 2 days in the field, with all tested guns and the M60 only missfired 2 times do to foulty ammunition.
That and the price made them buy the M60 in front of the MG5 that also made it to final testing.

If the tests are as "objective" (as in -put together to favor one candidate-) as those of the Dutch armed forces and police than those stats still don't mean anything ... mellow.gif

@pMASTER: Now that is a proper machine gun. What's the RoF on that beauty?
