  • Kosovo Terror Alert

    According to todays STAR (bleuuuurrgh) the Irish Infantry gp in Kosovo has been placed on a state of heightened alert as a result of concerns over AQ backed Albanian extremists.
    Basically it means wearing body armour and not doing patrols or routine travel in softskins.
    LTVs where are you now?

    I saw that report as well. Apparently it's the second time the Irish contingent in Kosovo has been placed on this level of alert.

      Were they not using those SIMBA armoured vehicles with the UN out there?

            Maybe I do..the one with all the armoured windows in the passenger compartment..

            They used these for a while in UNIFIL also I think.

              Yeah thats the RG-32 Nyala, I thought the Simba wouldve been a bit odd considering we've already got Piranhas.

                Many thanks, as you may know I'm in the process of setting up a site covering all Armoured vehicles either designed/built in Ireland or used by the DF.

                I didn't realise these were in use in Kosovo so I need to add to the site.

                Thanks again,
