    KIT, she said.

    The first photo was published in 2011 – one year clear of her ‘kit-related’ diatribe.

    That girl is a compromised peddler of misinformation who is pretending to be a journalist.

    In 1998/99 Nigeria was able to airlift 9000 men (including equipment and supplies) within 10 days in time for the Battle of Freetown II but for the past one week Nigeria has been struggling to deploy 900 men. The top brass need to ask themselves some serious questions about our airlift capacity.

    Well she is definitely representing her masters, in our case action speaks louder than words

    MALI UPDATE

    The U.S.A have commenced the airlift of French troops into Mali.

  5. originalpato says:

    @Bigbrovar which schedule? ECOWAS (Nigeria inclusive) had at least 10 months between when the UN made the resolution mandating intervention and September (the proposed commencement date for intervention) to make adequate preparations. Only three months had elapsed between the resolution and France’s unilateral action and yet in our typical Fire Brigade approach we went to sleep while Mali burned.
    If the armed forces of ECOWAS countries were poorly equipped for this sort sudden deployment. Nigeria has no excuse (not especially when we airlifted 9000 men, materials and supplies within 10days during the ECOMOG). Within four days France was able to move a regiment from Europe while we cannot deploy a battalion to Mali which is only 250 miles from the border at Sokoto. It show how we have retrogressed.

      How about ll the help from Canada, UK an d Co?

      @ originalpato nigeria has about 900 soldiers in mali and are also ferrying equipment and other essentials so i would say they are trying,as @ the time of the freetown debacle nigeria had all her G222 and c-130 charlies in working condition dispite the sanctions thats y it was possible bt after that sanctions totally destroyed most of our equipments and dats y we are having this problems,even if the coas,cas decide 2 fix all the air assets it would take months or years.

    i surppose the G222s of which we 5 units, have the capacity to carry about 50 troops each. Thats 250 combined together in one sorty. Since our plan is to deploy 1200 troops, i don’t see reason for any hitch.
    Thats not to say that we don’t need to improve our airlift capability.

  7. beegeagle says:

    Five G222s plus ONE second-hand G222 given free by Alenia as part of a US$69 million contract for the upgrade of the other five units. Alenia also threw in an offer of a hangar at Ilorin as part of that deal.

    That said, what they really should be doing is carry the troops in G222s and their materiel in the Hercules. They should try and move every 48-72 hours. The pressure shall ease up in a few weeks when THREE C130 Hercules planes resume service with the NAF.

    There is nothing to get alarmed about. After all, mopping up operations in central Mali are still ongoing.

  8. makanaky says:

    Looking at the troops that is being deployed to Mali they are even more kitted than the ones in this photos,
    I have stopped complaining about kits as i can see real progress.
    My take is that the rest of the world believe nothing good can come from Africa…….just listen to their commentary on the Mali conflict they report little or nothing about the Africa countries contribution.

  9. adickmish says:

    Fellow Cyber Generals, i am getting a bit confused and needs some clarification. What is Nigeria’s role in Mali? All I read about from CNN, BBC, ALJAZEERA and the like is French and Malian troops intervening in Mali. They are both at the battle front. Where are we. Just road blocks . pls clarify. Thanks

    • peccavi says:

      we are still mobilising, Nigerian forces are not yet deployed

      • jimmy says:

        Thank you for bringing sanity to this issue. minus the EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE .
        Once again my CYBER generals this is going to be a long war because
        a) The host country has a completely disorganized, demoralized army that will need to be built from scratch
        b) MALI is at least 5 to 7 times bigger than SL? OGA BEEGEAGLE can you confirm?
        c) The terrain is much different.

  10. Drhobert says:
