Default [Off Topic] Norwegian Forces in A-stan

Hello guys,

I have been searching the net for some detailed information about the fighting in Ghowrmach during Operation Harekate Yolo, November 1-6, 2007.

My most detailed source is Wikipedia...

In recent years, has anything new emerged re: the Norwegian participation in Herakate Yolo?

Yeah, I know.

Figured maybe something more meaty leaked out - documentaries, memoirs, newspapers etc - given it's been a few years now...

If you haven't seen this: Harekate Yolo II, Afgh - The Norwegian Perspective

Poster Marsuitor took part in Harekate Yolo II. Some interesting notes on the Iveco as well there.

Suppose you've read the Wiki article.

More guns and bullets make bad guys go away faster,
which in turn makes everyone in the area safer.

During the mission, a Norwegian sniper with the 2nd Battalion hit one of the Taliban insurgents from a distance of 1380 meters on the first shot, using a Barret M82A1 .[4] Another Norwegian sniper team shot and killed a Taliban insurgent from a distance of approx. 2010 meters, this was, however, not a first round hit. Several targets were engaged with the Barrett, some of them almost 3000 meters away.
thats a sick shot :O

[R-DEV]Ninja2dan: Not having a spotter is like masturbating with a cheese grater...mildly amusing at first, but generally painful and bloody in the end.

Thornehaw: If all this have been evidently true, Battlefield is a much scarier and dirtier than ever imagined. Not a conspiracy, but a possibility. If it is true, then trusting another is quite worrisome.

I found this sentence quite funny and since this is a war game forum I will put it here. No offense to the french just a good laugh.
