    Army and Navy helicopters are not maintained properly. You will notice that the helicopter says "Bundespolizei" federal police.

    GSG9 is not a army unit, it's a border-police one, they would be using the police kit anyway.

    the equivalent formation in the army is part of the Fallschirmjäger formation, though FSLK200 (Fernspäher) got shut down a couple of years ago, i don't know who's supposedly doing the whole sneaky sneaky pew pew in the german army anymore.

    unless that capability was retired entirely, something that would not surprise me, at all.


    edit : derp, it's the KSK, of course.

    GSG 9s parent agency hasn't been called BundesGRENZSCHUTZ for years now mate. It's the Bundespolizei, federal police, reflecting the fact that there isn't much border protection going on anymore.

    How you know that the Fernspäher are no longer a separate thing since 2008 but missed the renaming of the federal police in 2005 baffles me. Especially since you have more exposure to the latter on airports and train stations than the former. Also The Fernspäher did not exclusively go to the KSK, but also to the Luftlandeaufklärerkompanien, airborne recce companies. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luftla...r_(Bundeswehr)

    The GSG 9 is being expanded and gets barracks in Berlin, more or less across the street from my place.

    Well they could have decided to not pull out of buying Archer in 2013 and they would have had some fine (and functioning) artillery in their organisation today.

    I can literally not find a single reason to chose the K-9 artillery over the Archer.
    Archer is designed specifically for the Scandinavia terrain.

    Well K9 is designed for the Korean peninsula, which is just as mountainous with harsh winters.

    That said, the brass just wanted Samsung phones for everybody, and Samsung offered a package deal.

    Also kickbacks.

    Swedish terrain. Too many bridges in rural places (and probably some urban ones) can't take the axle pressure from the Archer and that was one reason along with problems with the autoloader the norwegian top brass was unimpressed with iirc.

    my primary interactions with Germany are A: cross border trips to get cheap booze and beer and B : cursing over spotify's continual obsession with serving me german language music. When it comes to the armed forces (wait, you have an army? ), a semi-detailed run-down on applicable NATO units we might encounter in case the home guard got activated including expected British, German and American reinforcements formations and special operations units and the like, cca 2004 and the face-droppingly awful shit leaking out to the press about the sorry state the whole thing is in.

    you know, to make it at least plausible that we'd not let some Russian outfit with hodge-podge stolen NATO gear roll up to a installation and give it a C4 enema.

    Makes sense.

    However you mentioned crossing the border, which means you could run into the Bundespolizei, which does border checks and security.

    you're a funny one, do you really expect them to pull over a white-as-snow man driving at the legal speed limit on the E45 in a city-car with Danish EU plates ?

    i don't even get pulled into toll checks because the car is literately too small to actually carry enough stuff to break the import limits.

    You talked about driving a car. Rather complicated without eyes.

    most of it is rather mild, it's just that when we do "strong cheeses" we aren't fucking about.

    it's not a good cheese unless it comes out of the fridge and gets onto the bread on it's own after all.

    yes, i do this by feel, if there is a crashing sound, i was probably not supposed to go that way.

    i also have bumper-car style fenders on it, saves on the repair bills, beyond that, the sat-nav can talk.
