A British Soldier on patrol speaks to an Iraqi boy in the southern city of Basra, kms south of Baghdad 06 January It is mainly British forces that patrol this city.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: Airborne forces must be able to rapidly converge on the enemy's most critical center of gravity by AIR power in order to gain strategic and operational surprise; as proven in GrenadaPanama and Haiti.
Our loss of Pristina airport to the Russian Airborne in a permissive motor march in Kosovo is a perfect example of the weakness of having to wait for marine peacekeepers driving long distances overland from Greece!!!
The days of piling supplies on the beach for an enemy to cream a bloated marine force are over; the Russians know this, we do not--as we insist on wasting BILLIONS on land-locked, slow-to-deploy, sea-based gyrene units that once ashore foot-slog and truck-hop into enemy land mines.

Infantry magazine, January-February, ITSG Begins Military Bicycle Development in Our early parachute test of the folding bike was not conclusive due to the exposed condition of the bike for the jump, though we found out later this was successfully done by the British Airborne in WWII combat see below.
However, it proved the ease which parachute delivery can be used to deliver ATBs. Click on thumbnail to view a larger image of picture: On the second C pass, Team Leader, LT Michael Sparks jumped with the folded bike over the rear ramp in its airdrop bag as a lowering line load.
All done in under a few hours time. As way of comparison, according to Gerard Devlin's book Paratrooper! What's fascinating is that the 88th GIR was the Army Airborne's Experimental unit and they had bicycles so they could have went much faster!
Mrazek The history of the 88th Airborne Battalion, from its activation, to the time it was amalgamated as a regiment with the th Glider Infantry Regiment in France during World War II, is covered in an eclectic assortment of conventional official documents.
Not recorded in them, or elsewhere, are its contributions and the impact these contributions have made to airborne warfare operations and doctrine, to military and commercial airlift operations, to military helicopter operations or to the progress of America, especially through the aircraft industry.
At its activation as the 88th Airborne Battalion on 10 October,it was intended to be an experimental organization that would introduce the air landing aspects of airborne warfare to America's military forces.
Germany was able to keep information about these operations from leaking out of Germany. This much the allies were able to glean through intelligence sources - a number of German Soldiers in large gliders had landed on the surface of Belgian's massive Fort Eben Emael on May 20, They subdued the fort in less than one hour.
The loss of the fort created a gap in the Belgian defenses.ignatz Jerry Miller Andres Huicochea Kartways, you almost certainly just hear fun, Thank you for making the sincere effort to idp ilsaf13 embarrasing ยินดี.
