Helicopter Assualt

I thought this might be US or UK, but then I noticed that the guy is holding a gun with wood on it.  US/UK doesn’t use wood braced weapons anymore right?

    The one guy seems to have an RPK light machine gun. I can’t see the sides of the Hueys well enough to get a unit marker off them. Could be a opposing force in a NATO/Pact wargame?

    well , that gun is an AK. Meaning , these guys seem to far from US/UK. Strange they’re wearing US woodland though for camo.

    The weapons they’re toting look to be of the Kalashnikov family, which neither countries use.

    As for “wooden braced” weapons, there are still a couple rifles out there in use by the U.S. military. The only ones I can really think of are the M14 and its variants, such as the M21 and M25.

    I’m guessing it’s a photo from a wargame. The alice packs, k-pods and BDU and Huey are U.S. unless they are on loan to another country.

    Probably playing the opfor in a FTX.

    Another possibility is one of our South American allies. Its not all that uncommon for them to use a mixture of US and East bloc weapons.

    The engine cowling where the air screens are located do not look US, definitely not an H model. Very seldom see the “commode” on the exhaust to disperse the heat in the rotor wash on US Hueys either. Alot of countries clone the woodland pattern, but much of the load bearing equipment does look US. The sky pig is still flying in 40+ countries.

    The markings on the helicopters look like a thin, light-blue ring around a red object on a white background. The Norwegians have a red triangle in there, and it doesn’t look like a triangle in the photo, and the British commonwealth states (Australia, Canada, NZ) usually have a wider and darker blue line on the outside.

    Actually, there ARE US units that carry AKs for a number of reasons…availability of ammunition (scavenged from the enemy), close in firepower (if using ‘shorty’ AKs), and so on. However, the helos DO look a bit off, and none of them have US ARMY or anything similar stenciled on the side.

    My guess is south american ally or else a fictional enemy force used in a training excercise.

    The army of Estonia uses US militairy uniforms and equipment. And they stil got Soviet arms and ammunition.

    sad enough to say that the UH-1’s are Georgian, you can just about make out the roundals on the rear of the helicoptors
