In my last post i talked about the Malian Army and mentioned in the end that they sometimes can’t afford to train with real bullets. Well, i found the video that i was referring too.
If you look away from the fact that It’s fucking sad that a real army can’t afford to train with real bullets this video is fucking hilarious.
Haha, holy shit. I remember watching this on Youtube a year ago (or something, can’t remember)
For anyone wondering, this is the Malian Army. One of the worst armies I’ve seen in action, ever. They were in a firefight with a dozen or so insurgents and got rekt until the French had to intervene and help them.
Here’s the link if anybody want to watch it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hQLrbfxeiQ
I feel sorry for them though. It’s a very poor country and sometimes they can’t even afford training with real ammunition (They have to make sound effects themselves, no fucking shit)
