Brixmis /Bosnia / Kosovo, G Wagen

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by ches-fford, Jan 30, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. After twelve months of looking at my mates built for Brixmis in 1988 then sent to Bosnia and Kosovo 230GE BGS G wagen with that Wayne's world , "one day it will be mine" look .
    He finally decided to sell a fist full of dollars later its mine .
    The plan is to show it a the MV shows.
    There are racks in the doors for MP5s and two gun racks mounted in the rear anyone know what weapon will of lived there ?
    What equipment would the G have carryed when in service with the German military/police on UN duty's ?
    Has anyone got any photos or information regarding G's on UN duty's ?
    It all helps to show the G during this part of its service in the correct context ?
    Cheers

  3. Nice G wagon. The rifles in the back would possibly have been H&K G36 rifles, On second thought I think that the germans still had G3's when i was in kosovo (2000)
     
  4. Thanks for that vandyke , a couple of G3s it is than ,
    any more info Gents ??

  5. An armourd version of that type of G-Wagon was used by the ECMM (European Community military monitor) in central Bosnia, 1993.
     
  6. Thanks for that Cpl_ripper ,
    Was it definatly armouerd as this G has all the brackets for riot screens and some wear shows that thay were fitted at some time ?
    Again thanks for the info

  7. They had fully armored glass, side panels, and were mine-proof. I don't have any pics might have some video thou. Oh yeah, painted white and crewed by obnoxious mongs.
     
  8. I think I saw a photo of a Scandanavian Med G Wagon in the book Winter Warriors: Across Bosnia with the PBI
     
  9. Thanks Gents any more info lads ??
     
  10. Any remember seeing this G wagen in Bosnia or Kosovo ?,
