Sweet vid you posted up for us 12Alfa. Between the Leopard II A6M's and the rebuilt M-113A3 assault vehicles, the Danes are the heaviest NATO contingent in theatre. Those boys ain't foolin' around.

The tanks has been there since november, and has been firing a couple of rounds at the talibans......and they seem to have respect for the heavy cats.

Lets hope they continue to have that respect. :)

That Barracuda systems sure gives the Leo a different appearance.

2003-2004 we had it on our Strv121for a few months, after a few days most of it was torn apart and after a few exercises only the barrel, turret and some parts of the body part had the barracuda left :P

I think it tooked the crews 2 days or so to mount it, and then they shreaded it apart much faster then that :P

still it did matther when looking in TIS so its worth it.

I was wondering if the netting was prone to snagging. I guess that answers that question. Perhaps the desert will be a better environment to use it in. Fewer trees anyway. :)

Yes and the barracuda is also taking some of the heat from the sun away from the turret, which makes it a bit cooler so the aircondition doesnt have to run at maximum all the time.
