    Tavor wielding SBS commandos at sea!!!!! Great photo.

  2. Spirit says:

    I guessed right! Its definitely Tav!.
    @ Oga Henry, I thought they changed their cammo.

    Navy SBS commandos DO use green camo as well. The chap who was detailed to take me around when I visited the SBS Camp was dressed in a black shirt over green camo on the day.

    BTW, this is a truly beautiful photo. Our Spec Ops chaps generally look good while the Navy SBS always look world class. I have seen many SF photos from sub-Saharan Africa. I do not find many who look this good and you can search the web to see most of their drab and hungry-looking peers elsewhere :-)

  4. Henry says:

    True, OGA beeg, the navy guys always look good.

    • Henry says:

      I’ve also seen a couple of spec ops units around africa, the egyptains and south africans stand out the most, then nigeria in 3rd position( close) in my view. If I were to rate them.

      • beegeagle says:

        I agree with you, my man. Angolans not bad looking either.

        Thank God ours are getting daily workouts from 24-7 anti-bunkering, counterpiracy and CTCOIN operations. God never wanted us to have a parade ground military apparently :-)

    I may be wrong but it seems the Navy is always setting the pace/blazzing the trail in Naija. Generals, any reason why this is so?

  8. Henry says:

    What comes to my mind, is leadership. Getting the best you can out of a really tight budget, and making sure personnel work with utter most confidence that you are doing the best you can based on what you have at hand. It inspires. I’m not saying the generals in the army do not want the best for their personnel oh, of course they do. The guys in the army receive brilliant training, it’s just that the navy chaps seem to get the kitting aspect better than the army. Above all however, all personnel in the military( navy nd army in particular) , need patriotism as the main ingredient to serve the nation in their field of work. I can say with utter most respect for the guys, they’ve got patriotism and love for their job flowing in them. If everybody in the nation can have even half the love and patriotism these guys show, I swear nigeria would be a far better nation, than what it is today.

    Hey, this is my take.

    DANOOZ MKENYA In reply to Henry.

    …and where do the Algerians, Tunisians
    and Morrocans rank?

    • Henry says:

      I’d rank the algerians on the same level as nigeria. Just like nigeria, the algerians have seen a lot of battle in the past decade. So the same as nigeria. I.e, for special forces I mean.

      But overall military, off course, the algerians are ahead of nigeria

    What about Tunisia – just because they are ‘fair skinned?’

    Come on..Algeria are GREAT all round. They have taken 20 years to get their intelligence, special operations and counterterrorism acts right. You need to appreciate where they are coming from.

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armed_Islamic_Group_of_Algeria

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Algerian_massacres_of_the_1990s

    Morocco try to get things right and on that score, they should do OK. However, Polisario Front rebels went inert in 1991, so Morocco probably do not have the contemporary HEAD-ON asymmetric warfare nous and experience which fate have thrust on Algeria non-stop since 1992 (homeland terrorism which has been greatly curbed) and Nigeria (insurgency, civil war, terrorism and piracy) non-stop since 1990.

    There is a difference between academy make-believe and getting to grapple with the matter on a day-to-day basis. Juxtaposed against the SUICIDE BOMBINGS (a measure of the practitioners’ depth of conviction)- not cowardly attacks by terrorists lobbing grenades or whatever, which security forces go through in place such as Algeria and Nigeria on a weekly basis, there is consequential little to talk about asymmetric operations in Tunisia.

    Insurgency is bad enough. It is worsened when terrorism, of which suicide attacks represent the apogee, get mixed into it. Angola and Morocco know a whole lot about counterinsurgency but very little about terrorism. CTCOIN is sterner stuff than CI and anyone who has straddled both turfs will tell you this.

    Insurgents retreat to fight another day in the heat of a gun battle. But how do you restrain a suicide attacker for whom the fear of death is not a deterrent?
