    Also interesting to note AQ was using a remote drone for surveillance, although judging by this picture, AQ's UAV tech isn't that advanced :D

  4. Yup, and armour, although they lost most of it between September 2001 and January 2002.
  5. PTP, I'm not sure of the situation in other places, but the AQ fighters encountered by Pakistani forces in the tribal area have often been heavily armed. That part of the world has been awash with weaponry for a long time
