      Thanks Sir Beegs for posting this! Seeing this along with the Igirigi pictures made my day. Welldone NAF/NA, God’s speed brothers!
      I guess this was made from Helios, I wonder if they also use rockets, I miss the whistling sound of that. May be I’m asking for too much! 😉

    Just curious, why aren’t my image posts going thru? Saying awaiting moderation since morning. While others have posted similar pics on here afterwards. I don’t get that.

  3. Henry says:

    Impressive video. This is the sort of P.R that’s expected of our military.

    Kudos Nigeria.

      • sizzorkay says:

        I think future military parade should be an eye popping event, with all these assets being acquired. Let’s hold a parade on independence day and field them all for the world to see.Its part of displaying power, But of course, our secretive military will probably not do that, probably will parade old stuff just to deceive the world lol, wonder why.

  4. OriginalPato says:

    That’s more like it. Albeit slowly but surely DHQ is learning PR. The #OnePixPerDay campaign on twitter has started yielding results. Vitória é Certa.

    Agostinho, BTR-4 IFVs. How many you say dem be again? Na rumour o

    • Augustine says:

      Oga Beegs, global defence reports say 47 units BTR-4 were rejected by Iraq, of which 40 units were inducted in Ukranian National Guard service leaving only 7 units available for sale to Nigeria.

      It’s possible the photos of the same 7 units are being repeated and released in different locations, e.g. on arrival/shipment to armoury, then later their battlefield deployment on the field of operation itself.

      Next possibility is Nigeria is buying from stocks of other countries that have it or Ukraine is secretly manufacturing more for us without it’s citizens knowing about the export.

      Think of the BTR-94, only 50 units are recorded ever built and are only in service with Iraq….so how did Nigeria get them ?

      Nigerian military procurement, the more you look, the less you see Oga Beegeagle.

  6. Are James says:

    I say again, this is not a DRONE strike. This is a manned aircraft footage (chopper or fixed wing) attacking Boko Haram with bombs and canon fire.

    Meanwhile, this has been the BUSIEST DAY EVER on this blog….absolute stampede!!

    The smile on my face right now is from ear to ear. If I wake up and find out that am dreaming….hmmmmm come and see vexation.
    Break/ Freedom is not free.
    God Bless Nigeria.

  10. Augustine says:

    Oga Beegeagle, I want to believe the noise bloggers have made here in the past two weeks begging DHQ for combat action videos and photos is leading to releases like that of the helicopter attack footage. However, some more professional input, a second aircraft could be filming the NAF helo so we can see the full view of the helicopter attacking Bokos….the NAF cameraman can be inside an Augusta helicopter pintle video-shooting the action.

  11. sizzorkay says:

    Apologies if these have been posted in the past.

  12. Nice, We need to heavily equip our Soldiers The footage is wat needs to be sent directly to all intl n tv stations make dem see with dia eye

    Dear CyberGs,
    The success of on-going operations by Nigerian Armed Forces and coalition partners has caused Egypt to request for a Nigeria-Egypt-led coalition against IS in Libya. Please see this post (though the heading focuses on the visit of the leaders of Central African States to President GEJ)…

    • Kay says:

      2 sides of a coin to this. They must be noticing an upswing of damaging attacks on the terrorists scum, at the same time I don’t fancy any deployment of troops faraway from home anymore until we are seriously uparmed and ready to blitzkrieg through any idiot that wants to hold our integrity to ransom.
      Besides we probably have a lot of nascent islamists who would probably want to sabotage from the rear if we collaborate against IS.

    • Omonon says:

      So some body outside Nigeria is seeing our effort and our progress shebi. Far away Egypt is asking for Nigeria – Egypt coalition. Heeeeeeeeeeeeee, Naija, i am proud of YOU OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Obama, you dey hear that so.
      Naija, i bow for you ooooooo!!!


  14. beegeagle says:

    Do not forget, gentlemen, that we are keeping tabs on our new-to-the-inventory Gazelle helicopters. How many are in already and what role are they expected to play in this war? Armed scouting? Hot pursuit? Ground attack complement to weaponised Puma and Agusta A109 LUH helicopters?

  15. Saleh says:

    Oga beeg Pls send me an email I can reach u on regards a new development

  16. Manny Aaydel says:

    @Oga Kay, I read you loud and clear but who can Egypt count on? They probably want the southern flanks (Niger et al) well secured in case they open up on the IS chaps.
    @GenBeegs, are the Gazelles configured for night ops?

    • Kay says:

      Oga Manny,
      I know, but lets spare a thought about deploying anywhere without closing ranks at home. In our current campaign, the West took us for mugs and chose to do little. Yes, we were part of our problems but the West’s actions seemed like a case where you left a friend to die simply because he forgot to lock his windows or front gate. Don’t forget Egypt (armour-3500+, apc-6000+, aircrafts-500+) also gets an incredible level of support by way of hardware, funds and training. Who would provide for us even if logistics alone if we decided to lock horns in another theatre?

      If they want their flanks secured, let the French do it(all countries there are Francophone, Algeria I’m sure can hold their own) as they are also part of the reason there’s a power vacuum in Libya that encouraged the rise of Islamists in North Africa.

        Oga Kay. I respect your hustle sir.
        please let us not under estimate the prowess of the Nigerian Military, especially in conventional warfare, because as situations are in Libya right now, its very much conventional, with a sprinkle of insurgency. We have to go on the offensive, that’s for sure….
        To those agitating for war with neighbors, that’s not the way to go, Long distance peace enforcement is what we have to undertake, one which we are very good at, i must add. We must not allow Libya fall into the depths of darkness, les, we are in for a rude awakening.
        Yes, Nigeria must continue to up arm for these actions to remain sustainable. We must not close our eyes to the anarchy currently going on in Libya. Nigeria has never done that, we cannot start now. Egypt, Nigeria, Algeria, France must align towards this engagement, South Africa too. Now thats what i call a joint effort, one which would be readily supported by the AU and subsequently by the UN.
        We have to do both simultaneously, defend and #FenceNigerianBoarders as well as enforce peace and decorum in Libya; Egypt alone cannot do this, because they are neighbors and intervening alone would seem too heavy handed, they are in a similar position Nigeria was up until last year. Egypt needs allies on the continent since the un democratic majority led GCC countries such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the rest have begun to spurn about Egypt’s intervention. Nigeria, has a unique stand in Africa as the largest, most democratic nation on the continent hence, what applied to other non contiguous countries on the continent not been allowed to partake in our war, cannot and will not apply to Nigeria been able to intervene in Libya even though we are not neighbors. That’s the very unique stand Nigeria has. hence, we cannot afford to leave it to Egypt alone, we must at least open one more front to this peace enforcement, mind you, once Libya can pull off a string of elections then, adios.
        Yes sir, i believe plans are still on for the African standby Force. We need to quickly expedite this.

  17. Williams says:

    New military equipment are been shopped now…..soon you would all hear of equipments you never dreamed off to be here in Nigeria before middle of March.

    Also, Americans and Westerners are angrily amazed on how Nigeria was able to acquire deadly weapons especially the drones.

    #MoreDrones #MoreBombing #MoreAircrafts #MoreTanks #MoreGuidedBombs #MoreTrainedSoliders

    God bless Nigeria.

    @Manny Aydel.

    I really do not have an idea as to the specs of the Gazelles but I am sure that someone shall soon give me the headsup.

    NAF PR Dept are not helping the narrative at all. At the very least, the photos of the weaponised Puma and the Gazelle helicopters should have been posted on their website. We surely need to see what they are doing so that the message can be proactively disseminated.

  19. Manny Aaydel says:

    @Gen Beegs, let’s hope the DAPR of NAF will respond to your request pronto. Meanwhile, have you noticed how Channels TV has suddenly become the recipient of exclusive publicom content from our military? They should say ‘thank you’ to Beegeaglesblog for the clamour by the Cyber Generals here for our forces to use domestic media-specifically- Channels TV- to counter the rubbish being spewed forth by our detractors. Another ‘medal’ for Beeg. Thanks too to the Ogas at DHQ who listen and respond! It can only get much better!

    • ozed says:

      Next step would be to use multiple platforms. one jet or chopper making the strafing runs and the other filming.This would make for even better viewing.

      Great nonetheless.

    @purefoyAMEBO: Video: Nigerian Military AirStrikes vs Boko Haram – silence, explosions and people running:

    Nigeria Military releases video of Air-Strikes vs Boko Haram

    It’s very rare to get any glimpse from the frontline in the war between the Nigeria military and Boko Haram. It’s dangerous, but also difficult to get any reliable information. But this video, I think, is different:

    There is no sound in this footage – and the silence (as well as almost ‘robotic’ aerial view) helps provide of the more “neutral” glimpses into the war. There is no narration, no set up of photos, and all the other tricks that Boko Haram and the Nigerian military use in their propaganda war.

    If you believe that this is reliable footage of Nigeria’s military air-strikes against Boko Haram – then you are left to watch, question and decide for yourself.

    In particular, I watch this video and question whether the concerns by Human Rights Groups that civilians are being caught in the crossfire are valid? Are those people running below all Boko Haram fighters? The military may reclaim the territory but we are now seeing a spike in suicide attacks from Kano to Yobe. Can Boko Haram be defeated with these tactics anytime soon?

    Decide for yourselves – watch now:

    This fellow has a way with words…
    The implications are high if he is not watched

    • Deway says:

      @KKY, where was this comment made?

    • mcshegz says:

      Oga KKY. I respect your hustle sir.
      Mr Purefoy’s obviously having a war with his emotions, he isn’t sure what side of the fence he must perch, whether Nigeria he now calls home, or his former home’s representation of the fight against terror, so we must forgive him, he seems conflicted.
