Afghanistan

Post by AmericanSoldier15U »

With the obvious adage of OPSEC in consideration here, I am curious to hear what others from around the world have seen in Afghanistan on their travels there. I just finished up a year long tour and am currently on the way home. I was in Sharana, south east Afghanistan. I wont reveal details about the exact aircraft I saw, but airframes that I hadnt seen before that showed up there during the year included:

CASA C212
CASA C295
Mi-8
Mi-17
Mi-24
Mi-26
S-61N
Puma
PZL M-28
An-26
An-32
An-72
An-74
C-27J

as well as many others. thats just a sample. some of those civilian, some military.

others i had seen before included

Dash-8
Jetstream 31
CH-47
UH-60
AH-64
C-130/L-100
CH-53
Beech 1900

some random shots

That is some really nice variety there. By the way, those An-12's with rear mounted turrets must really be old?
