Weapons training in Macedonia

[Nolte] When soldiers of the 230th
Military Police Company arrived in the Republic of Macedonia to teach classes
on American crew-served weapons to deploying members of the Macedonian military,
they have a couple of days on the ground to prepare the classroom
and put the finishing touches on their classes. But when some of the Macedonians already at
Training Area Pepelishte express interest in learning the weapons,
they leap at the chance to practice their courses.
We have been trained on them, we know how to use each weapon, we know how
to fire them, we know how to clean them, we know how to
perform malfunctions. We want the same thing with the Macedonian
soldiers so that way, when they go downrange, they’ll
be confident with them. [Nolte] Of course, while they are here to
teach, a vital part of any military to military event
is the exchange of information. The soldiers of the 230th were rewarded with
the opportunity to learn about a staple rifle of the Republic
of Macedonia and militaries the world over: the AK-47.
We had one of the Macedonian sergeants come down and give us a class on the AK-47.
He showed us how to break it down, how to reassemble it.
His particular weapon–I believe he’s had it since 1987–was immaculate.
It was very clean. [Nolte] Their first encounter with training
another military left them confident in the Macedonians’ ability to learn the important
lessons they have to teach in the coming days,
lessons that could save their lives or those of their American allies
when they deploy to Afghanistan. Reporting from Krivolak in the Republic of
Macedonia, Specialist Jason Nolte, 21st Theater Sustainment Command.

  8. You would be surprised russian guns are as good as american and british ones. Not to mention their elite is by far the most hardcore in the world (not best because that doesnt exist), due to their training.

  9. I was one of the American's that helped train them. I loved those guys. They took out to party the last 3 days we were there. It was a great time
