So here we can see ?

1. Australians in Afgan.

2. Austrians in training.

3. Taliban in Afganistan with BOWMAN radios.

I wonder??



Reporter Ian Deary seems to be their MOD and Military expert reporter .

Shame he as well as many other reporters in the rags aint fit enought to wipe a squaddies ARRSE let alone get a Reuters picture quote correct.

Got to love the Daily Mail "MoD criticised after 3,900 STATE OF THE ART Battlefield Radios go missing"

Just spat tea all over my iPhone when I read that title!

They were on the Atlantic Conveyer, I saw them being loaded.
Fofad!

(for those of you who are annoyingly young, that meant Fukc Off, Fire At Donnington; theman at Q&M's standard reply to anything in the 80's after the fire was blamed for shortages for everything)

[quote="MoD"
The MoD insisted the devices had not been counted because they were being repaired or had been redeployed.[/quote]

So basically...the radios haven't vanished, its another crap story and really crappy pictures. Badly edited, but does the original reporter actually do the stock pictures themselves?

that was my thought after I pressed enter :D

that's why we had the first gulf war, FoFad was getting a bit old so they needed a new reason to say no.

It's in the gulf. :D

The Taleban will need to get the Kajaki dam completed and the turbines installed if they've got 4000 Bowman radios to keep charged.

I hope they've got them all and are trying to use them.
