This has to be just about the worst training I have seen allied soldiers go through. How these guys don’t get burnt to a crisp is beyond me. The exercise shown was part of Kosovo Force’s (KFOR) mission rehearsal exercise conducted in Hohenfels, Germany that prepares multi-national forces rotating through Kosovo. Train as you fight and fight as you train, I guess.
