Nitpicking, but the AT-4 is not a rocket launcher. It is a recoilless rifle; It fires a fin-stabilized antitank grenade. (There is a tracer at the back of the grenade, and many mistake that for the flare of a rocket engine)

The way the dust is kicked up is strangely captivating.

Husky is an awsome bit of kit, can drive over pretty much anything but a bottomless hole. If their on a live fire exercise they're most likely new to theatre hence the clean kit. Get some.

Isnt the names and ranks of soldiers that are overseas secret? And therefor not allowed to publice?

No, PERSEC only applies in certain circumstances. When publishing pictures it is impossible for their identities to be protected anyway so they might as well publish the name too.

haha, I'm digging the middle guy in the background. Lefty's all "Shit, this is gonna be loud!" and righty is actually intent on the target, but middle dude is all "effin-A right man!!"

BTW, wheres this guys kit? I mean, yeah you can wear an FLC over your IBA, but his ACU's are pretty clean too...

I never thought a military truck could be sexy, but I hate to say it, but that angle on the truck is simply sexy. Noice work.

A very nice capture! There's just something about smoke lingering on the ground that makes a picture more interesting or impacting in a way. I'm not in the military, but during reenactments when it rains, the smoke from all the guns and cannons tends to fall to the ground quicker. It's just something else.

Is the truck in the battleground , the new replacement for the old humvees which is almost useless in the modern wars ?

yes, its the MRAP vehicle. (mine-resistant ambush-protected) (well,, pretty sure) don't quote me on that. could be slightly different wording. though, it looks like the newer generation of them for Afghan.

Yay the humvee was never made for modern combat as there armor is lacking compared to the firing power the insurgents can aquired and so I think its a good thing that they finaly change to a more modern and efficent truck because at the beginning the humvee was a support truck mostly decticaded to medical usage :/
