    These are platforms designed to do more than teach terrorists a lesson…such scums get no second chance for their inhumanity and barbarism. #Never Again as Victory comes from God alone!

    that chopper looks bigger that a Gazelle…..Looks more like a Bell Huey. Probably PMC stuff (Bell 212)

    • Capt Tobias Wilcock says:

      The Helicopter is definitely an Huey ( Civil Version Bell 205), twin blade, single engine, modified with removed sliding doors.( 212 designation is 2 x Rotors blades, 2 x Engines)

      • Are James says:

        Bell 212 are all over Warri and PH. This is a very safe and proven platform. Also maintainable – technicians typically turn it around after a major fault in one day.

    That BIGFOOT mrap is actually what it name implies. The MRAP tire alone reach and pass the waist of the soldier standing next to it. So much ground elevation.

    We’ve seen that these Bigfoot MRAPs are assests that we can’t do with, we just need to start our own manufacturing of something like this. Igirigi can be model to this.
