The military poured more troops and intensified its artillery assault to flush out renegade Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) rebels from some 22 villages they had occupied in North Cotabato. The fighting erupted after the Supreme Court last week stopped government from signing a deal with the MILF that would have given them powers to control vast swathes of land in the south.

Re: Worlds Armed Forces Pictures III

Well my toughts exactly. Are you sure that these aint the Muslim gurellians firing?

If they really are from Philipine army, the disipline is quite low. And without disipline conducting any sort of military operation, even as simple as all walk togheter as a group is impossiple.

Another interesting point is the low manning of the guns. Only two guys per gun. Firing a field howiters doesen't require more than one guy...if time is no asset. With two or three guys the firing rate can be acceptable. We ofter sort of accidentaly practised this as everytime when we started firing, the radio went on and said food has arived to the battery HQ...and nothing is more important to conscripts than food...:spam::spam:
