About an hour ago a Hind mi-24 flew right over my garden at just 80-100m high and headed in a NW direction, and it was one of the scariest things I’ve ever heard/seen!

Fucking hell! :?

... and naturally we shouldn't be seeing the defence of CY EEZ resources in isolation and look at it in the wider context and with the much bigger contribution from CY friends in mind.

This is a para from CY News Report...

The Israeli Defence Force (IDF), says Haaratz “is apparently going to establish a new military body − a marine border police. Security publications are talking about buying submarines and missile ships, and about an Israeli air station to be built on Cyprus to protect the gas rigs. The huge expense will be shouldered by the budget of the IDF, which is becoming the IDGF: the Israel Gas Defense Forces. The chiefs of staff are becoming a factor to be considered when it comes to gas production, the heads of the gas tycoons’ security detail.”

Cyprus should sell all the soviet shit and the outdated french tanks to some African country to get new stuff.

We only have about 50 of those AMX-30s and they’ve been FULLY upgraded but our main battle tank is the T-80U.

There is a list on Wikipedia. They have a surprising amount of stuff from what I have seen. The black MI-35s are cool.

Do remember seeing a lot of APC etc with flat tyres at some of the better known Bases.Obviously not used often. Remember thinking the traffic in Nicosia would be easier with one. Being lifted up in the bucket of an armoured forklift thing to run cables cos they guys saw us struggling with the skalosies on uneven ground (hilly area) was fun and easier.
