    New types of camos are being introduced,of course not all special units will use the multicam.

    I love how fast they are with their room clearing... kind of dangerous if there are booby traps though. I've noticed people advocate for the use of systems like Corner Shot for room clearance and hostage rescue, going slow and methodical.

    And while I'll concede it has uses for protecting police or military operatives, since most adversaries wont shoot at a wall, despite most being permeable to high-caliber bullets, and for intelligence gathering during slow-goings, during hostage rescues the last thing you want is to take your time! Speed and violence win the day during hostage rescue ops.

    *I've added a few links so some of those suggestions. Here's a few counter arguments from a former Norwegian military soldier with 10 years in Afghanistan under his belt.

    ...

    This is a promotional video, but again, it's speed and aggression, not slow and deliberate:



    More Ops-core... this pleases me.

    You had asked me if NFM Group is Norwegian: yes they are. They also own several body armor manufacturers including Skjold, Thor and Garm.

    100 years ago,started one of the most bloodiest war of the WW1. Verdun. 300.000 German and French soldiers died during this terrible battle.
    100 years after the start of the Battle of Verdun, the same sense of duty,and courage for our motherland,their sacrifice will not be forgotten and we shall continue the fight against the enemies of France!

    Is this near France or is it a joint NATO patrol?
    Those new armored trucks are really nice, the RCWS on top is great. You guys have some long supply lines in West Africa because there are not many air ports in that part of the world so having a large quantity of these is necessary.

    As the aircrafts entered the UK's area of interest,the United Kingdom and France have coordinated their actions and sent respectively a pair of Eurofighter Typhoon for the RAF and a Rafale B + a Mirage 2000-5 for the FaF to intercept and escort the planes. (You can see a Typhoon on the 1st pic.)
    Then,when the blackjacks entered the Channel,they were only escorted by the FaF,they headed to the north of Dieppe before heading back to Russia.
