Battled hardened men.

One of the advantages of this insurgency apart from upgrading of our arsenal is the experience our military must have garnered after we must have crushed boko haram (yes these terrorists will be crushed wink).

Our military will be up there with the Algerian military in terms of experience and exposure

Yes...the days of soldiers loitering on barracks grounds playing draught is gone...New acquisitions, establishment of more army battalions, and improved infantry equipment...10 years ago, body armor for soldiers on operations was seen as a pipe dream...Now, all troops in the N.A now use DICON-produced body armor,ballistic helmets and now, GL-fitted AK-74s, optical sight RPG-7s, Tablets for officers fitted with Google Maps Surveillance, additional cohesion within army battalions on duty, additional units of Otokar Cobra APCs, New MRAPS, and a "lot" more classified stuff I can't say here....Big Pity that the NAF has been left behind..More still needs to be done in the Army, no doubt......but we are not where we were 5 yrs ago in terms of organization and equipment...Its like only conflicts can wake us up to our responsibilities...here in Africa.

Hi Sinus, more grease to your elbow for the courage to meritoriously serve your fatherland, Nigeria.

You asserted in your post above that military weaponry used by NA has greatly improved in the past decade, but there is a recent counter claim that weapons used by the frontliners in the northeast are grossly substandard and even "jam" sometimes, and that this has led to severe losses on the part of NA in recent times. Please what is your own take on the counter assertion?

Well, issues like that exist but only on an insignificant scale...vehicles that break down are immobilized to prevent them falling into enemy hands..till Army engineers get them back into service...as for the rifles, the AK is VERY reliable..and hardly jams..sometimes, troops battle in sandstorms, swamps, and in intense daylight heat..still the AK kicks on..bt its quite inaccurate...you need to put in about 5 short bursts on targets of 300m to get any chance of hitting the target...but the new AK-74s on the scene, from what I heard, is FAR more accurate at ranges the Type-56(N.A's AK variant) and AKM(being phased out) cannot dream of matching...but in summary, a lot still needs to be done...troops need NVGs,more AK-74s, ATGMs for BH technicals, and automatic grenade lauchers..also, a dedicated IFV is needed..ill Strongly recommend the BMP-2..or AAA mounted guntrucks to give troops confidence when going into battle.

What about our Defence industry, it has been greatly improved. We're expecting Proforce defence to launch there AFV (Armoured fighting vehicle) in a year or two years time.


We've seen new vehicles ( Igirigi APC, oskosh sandcat, streit MK3, big-foot MRAP), including additional helicopters, A-29 Super-Tucano, and improved infantry weapons.


There is no question, our military has garnered valuable experience from fighting this insurgency, we've got a new division, the 7th division primarily set-up and trained to deal with with COIN/ CTOIN.

Nigerian Army troops patrolling villages in the North East....These villages have been "soft targets" for the Insurgents of late.

Why is the Nigerian airforce not part of this battle, the absence of the airforce has made this fight a bit difficult for the army. The army no doubt has risen to the occasion. Was in maiduguri last year and I must say I'm proud of our soldiers.

God bless our Gallant Troops, just as Sirusblack said, the Defense Headquarters need to boost their morale and confidence by Flooding the Army with Ak-74's and ATGMs to root out these devilish virgin seekers.
Thumbs up Sirusblack.
Sirusblack Sir, pls dont forget to be backing up your data incase of a replica of the past catastrophic data loss. Keep up the informative update post. Respect wink

@siriusblack am in love wit this thread, infact i dedicated my dp today to the soldiers in the NA ,using pix from here
Bt i stil ve unaswered questions

I ve seen vehicles,tanks,apc ammunitions on this thread ...and am wondering how come the media reports that the NA is nt well equiped and sometimes run out of ammo

Infact eye witness reports confirmn this

Is it that the pictures here , the apc,ammo are insufficient or nt evenly spread or what

Cos i see the boko haram juz has hilux,anti aircraft guns, motorbikes and some apcs

So what can be d issue?

@siriusblack r u in the army also @henry120

I will like you to help me answer these questions

Thanks
