PostSubject: Mr.Duck Back In Black + some army story :)   Mon Mar 28, 2011 2:07 pm

Hi guys!

I'm back from military service. Here's a little story about it. Those 9 months were truly tough time with some awesome once in a lifetime experiences.

Shooting with real assault rifle was cool, especially combat shootings in forest at summertime.
When we were shooting at winter time as a team of 7 soldiers we could VERY slightly sense the feeling that the Veterans of Winter war got. All the clothes were wet, temperature was between -28 and -32 degrees of Celcius and we all were tired from 20km skiing march. Shooting in that condition in the middle of the night with nightvision sights was unique and humbling experience for all of us.
Btw I was the leader of the team. My military rank was, and it still is, Corporal (Junior Leader). The whole team welded together thightly, we are very likely to be friends for rest of our lifetime. Smile

My branch of service was anti-tank groups, which I'm proud of. We weren't just chilling like lazy boys at artillery. Smile

Best of the all happenings was one anti-tank shooting, which was climax of our course. Lady luck was favorable, and I was one of the three that got to shoot with our lovely main weapon. I shooted real T-55 tank (Soviet tank sold to Finnish Defence Forces, not a light one!) with real anti-tank missile NLAW.
Distance was about ~300m and little downhill, an optimal shooting post. You can imagine how awesome it was to launch the missile and then watch through the scope missile doing it's job. Missile flew ~1m above the tanks top using its Overfly Top Attack -mode. While above the tank, magnetic sensor launched the warhead --> thin pole of melted copper penetrated the whole tank (top, interior and bottom) from above. NOT ANY chances of survive, that was fckin great!! Twisted Evil Felt like a "Big Boy" at that moment Very Happy

We threw many grenades, smoke and frag ones. I shooted also several lighter anti-tank bazookas but they were nothing compared to NLAW-missile. Oh, and the missile costs 25 000€ and its disposable Smile


Here's some picks of stuff we used. Rifle w/ nightvision scope & snow camo suit, which is really good IRL & soldier carrying shooted NLAW-missile.






Not so funny thing were i.e early wake-up 6:00 every morning, at camps usually earlier. Discipline was too strict sometimes and 3 week -periods withoud holidays caused mind blowing stress. Laying in position and waiting 9 hours for enemy to show up wasn't cool either Sad. Anyways I enjoyd my service very much and I recommend it for all of you!


So, see you in the game! T: evf. Mr.Duck & evf. FlyingFinn sunny

Wow nice . cherry

- 30 C is damn cold.

Question Do Finnish infantry soldiers still use ski in the snow to move faster ?
It was such a nice and effective technic vs the russian while the WW2.

Iron was right, we do. This winter there was a little over 1 meter of snow @ eastern Finland. Moving without skis is impossible.
