ITALIAN ARMY Aviation Battalion - Validation

Postby MasterJet on Fri 17 Feb 2012, 4:03 pm

This week I was lucky to 'embed' with the italian army aviation to follow the validation of the Aviation Battalion that soon will go to Afghanistan.
This exercise was the final phase of a six months training that all the units (ground and air) must do before go to the hot zone.
Every mission is made as if they are for real in AFG...the aim of the exercise is to increase the cooperation between all the units that soon will work side by side in a hostile environment.

Hope you like

Super shots of the Mangusta. Not a helicopter we see very often. :clap:

Simply great set with lovely colours and composition throughout. Shame there is not a tad more rotor blur in the Chinook shots but we all know how awkward they are! :clap:

Really great. I love Mangustas and "gunner" shot.

Spectacular set, but my pick of all of them goes to the venerable Huey!
