I was wondering it I heard right in the video that the gunner was an lieutenant?Perhaps someone should have thought about putting on a more experienced gunner on the FN. I mean the report /doc does say that they are scouts 15 clicks in front of a convoy. BTW, does everyone get this in English? Not the video obviously, but the write up?
For the article, my phone will translate it to English. I can paste it here.
In the Sahel, the legion tracks Daesh. The exceptional report of our special envoys.
Two men who resume their race after taking out their weapons. Behind them, legionnaires as scouts, 15 kilometers ahead of a convoy. After difficult months, where the jihadists succeeded in deadly attacks against the local armies, the French army goes back to the crenel with reinforced manpower to 5 100 men . That day, leaving from Ménaka in Mali, around twenty heavily armed vehicles were advancing in the Liptako-Gourma region. Objective: to flush out jihadist groups which take their ease around the Nigerien border . In three weeks, this intervention has already eliminated 80 rebels, most often by air strike. This kind of duel on the ground is exceptional.
