    Smart looking chap.
    In other news, Ansar el Dine is pushing south, Malian forces falling back it seems without much fighting, last few strategic towns on the Niger reporting numerous columns of jihadist vehicles.
    Interesting times

      For those who say Nigerians are not well kitted here is a nice picture that tells the truth.
      OGA PECCAVI you know my views on the MALIAN ARMY( absolute cowards, cannot ,will not shall not stand and fight,always retreat). What is it about them that they are constantly retreating is it the training?, leadership?, ineptness of the rank file troops?. After all you strip of the turbans and flowing robes from these jihadists 90% of them are MALIANS,
      I am very concerned about Nigerian soldiers being in tandem with these guys.
      In the heat of Battle will they back to tradition ” break nerve” and run nah wa o !

    “It’s called an AK-L 74, isreali made, very new very modern. Effective range 800m, non effective range 1200meters. I wish the army can get some of these or any new brands for it’s SOG’s”.

    This is what I wrote on a different thread.

  7. peccavi says:

    Is it not just an ordinary AK 74 with a fore grip?
    The Malians dey tire me, They will run until they hit the Atlantic. Yet Sanongo and his boys are in Bamako making mouth
