I believe that they're primarily Canadian troops given the insignias, gear, and vehicles. Although I can see one or two other nations represented.

p.s. that scout vehicle is totally a descendant of the puma. * wheels, a nice big cannon on the top.

Sounds like one interesting holiday :) But be careful, those people also heard about the hostagetaking-trick it seems.

Yep, definatly canadians. i love that pic with the solders giving the kids candy.

The scout car i cant recall what it is, but almost every country has a type of scout car like this. could it be a striker?

ASLAV is the Australian version (AuStralian Light Armored Vehicule), Canada uses the LAV III (basically the samething). Don't say "british commonwealth", its Canadian made! :)

Considering that combat consists of driving over a hidden bomb, I don't imagine that it's much of a factor.

Currently the Canadian Armed Forces are in a uniform and geat transition. They're upgrading to the 4th generation camo and havn't finished getting all the different camo's into production. By the time they pull out of Afganistan they'll have all their desert gear. :uhoh:

As is typical for our country!

Nice pics!

Sweden has around 100 soldiers in Afganistan but I couldn't find any good pics so here's some from Kosovo:

And Blistex (do you remember me? I havn't posted here on like 7 months) our soldiers in Afganistan doesn't have any desert uniforms at all, they use the same uniform as the soldiers above :lol:.
