Whats going on?
Thos pictures were taken during the Border war in Angola. The South African Army as it stands today is almost entirely black and whites, especially Afrikaners, are openly discriminated against and seldom, if ever make rank above sergeant. There are a few Afrikaner generals that managed to hang on to their posts, but they are on their way out. I think I read somewhere that there are at least 1 general for every 500 troops or something like that. Too many Chiefs and too little Indians, eh? Our military spends more on salaries for it's officers than equipment!
Last week, the civillian Kommandoe units in Nelspruit were disbanded. This is a system where every town has volunteer ex-military men going on patrol during the evenings in Ratels and help the police fight crime. The Nelspruit Commando went places where the police refused to go and played a major part in crime fighting - eventhough they were military and not civvy police. The reason behind disbanding them? "They weren't representative of the local population" Remember that this is a Volunteer unit and noone is refused except if no military experience.
During the bad old days, there were around 7000 murders a year. Today there are close to 20 000 a year. To give you an idea, the body count in Iraq during the entire campaign is around 15 000!

We do use the AUG, also the M4, they do different jobs. But the AUG is the standard issue service rifle, the M4 only gets used by a few units. M4 certainly isn't "better" or worse.
Ahhh I suspected something like that.
Aussie units tend to be very well trained from what I've heard. Good job guys!

Check your Sidneys. That aircraft is distinguish more closely to the (Western Designation) F-10 Vigorous Dragon or known as J-10 by the Chinese. The EuroFighter has more different airframe if you look more carefully. The reason it does look similar to the Eurofighter is because of the coating color. Everything else looks different.

Or perhaps you havn't examined the Eurofighter more closely.

The J10 looks like a Lavi, unfotuneatly.

Yeah probably more like the Lavi. Thanks a lot Israel.
Then again, the Lavi, this J-10 and the Eurofighter are pretty similar looking aircraft.
