Argentine Army Video



Interesting but quite outdated equipment. Did I see an AMX 13 in amongst that lot? Very impressive video, very Latin full of machismo with a hint of 'Wild Bill Hickock' and 'Platoon' about it. Let's face it folks, it's f*cking better than 'Armoured Infantry.........forward as one!' God I cringe at that statement.

Where do I sign up............Senor?

Funny they skipped the

"piles of weapons on the tarmac, queues of blokes with their hands up, white flags from the rooftops" section of the video out.
Where was the thunderbird video from? Originaly I mean?
As for the argie video, yes I noted the masses of outdated equipment, particuarly the helicopter that i think they stopped making some time ago.
I thought at one point they were going to address some of their past misdeeds, but then all the dissidents that had been chucked out of the back of the C 130 seemed to have parachutes this time.
It is a good video - way better than the ones we produce
Show that sorta thing on TV and you will prob solve most of the manning cirsis in one fell swoop!!!!

Anyone know how i can download a copy from the net at all? - Tried some things and they dont seem to be working
Hilarious! Poor sods!

Shoddy equipment, lack of CBA, having a cr a p time doing public duties, only one or two chosen men doing doing adventure training, chronic overstretch, rubbish medical facilities, exploited by their government for PR purposes
All looks a bit dangerous to me... do armies really shoot at each other? Previous recruiting campaigns made me think the army was all about skiing/rockclimbing/diving/looking nice for queeny.

Perhaps we should put a few chally 2s and some other kit onto falklands... for training purposes of course... would halt any elaborate military posturing by argie bargies
I was looking at their cabs thinking "Hmm, I like the look of that A109. We should get a couple of those for ourselves. They'd be as Gucci as those Bofors Guns the RAuxAF Regt used to play with." :twisted:
A far better recruiting video for us would be some footage of the Belgrano sinking set to the music of "Don't cry for me Argentina".
