  1. Oga beeg i read some where that Nigeria Military has deployed ”armed drones” in the light of the on going onslaught on BH! At first i did not believe the claim by the writer knowing that our journalists cant defferentiate an attact helecopter from a jet and an amoured vehicle from a tank but on a second thought knowing fully well that one can never predict the Nigeria Military with its knack for secracy i thought otherwise-the veracity i mean. Can you corroborate?

    I would not be surprised one of the things that is also apparent is the element/ role of SF in this conflict and the element of surprise.

    I know a guy who claims to have been involved in intel gathering and recon of BH bases for the past 2 months.
    Their bases are well mapped and the types and caliber of weapons known.
    Escape routes have been surveyed and blocked ever before the joint attack on Friday.
    The guy refused to say more

    Oga mi camo,

    The guy said `EVERYTHING IS BEING USED AND EVERYBODY IS INVOLVED` in this. Tactics developed locally are being tested here.

    Again, I cannot pretend that the NA
    have not sprung any surprises on us as
    far as equipment needs go. For
    instance, ALL the military equipment
    logs believe that we own 72 Panhard
    VBL scout cars. We doubted this – not when we have half that number
    deployed as training assets in training
    isntitutions and with demonstration
    battalions – such as at the NDA, ACC etc
    while the other half of that number
    (36) are visible on urban CTCOIN operations in Kano, Kaduna, Abuja and
    Jos. Never mind the major flashpoints
    that are Borno, Yobe and the Niger
    Delta AND the even distribution across
    battalions right round the federation. Sure as can be, Camouflage1984,
    craving absolute confidentiality, has
    posted me a photo of an acquaintance
    who is on the crew of, wait for it,
    PANHARD VBL NUMBER 200! So it turns
    out that, unkown to Jane’s, IISS Military Balance and SIPRI, the
    Nigerian Army actually field 200 or
    more VBLs – thrice as many as they
    have on their books. Remember that
    we have also shown you first photos
    of previously unknown assets such as Type 90 AA systems and tracked
    Spartan APCs.
