Wiesel 1 MK20 shows up at Swift Response 15...photo by Spc. Courtney Hubbard
Interesting. I'm not sure how I view Germany's armed forces. They have fabulous kit but I'm just not sure how well they're funded (to illustrate the point, check out the G36 on the hull of the vehicle first vehicle...they're suppose to be switching to HK416's and you would think that the premium units showing up for this big dog and pony would be first in line).
Having said all that, their Airborne forces are interesting. Much smaller than the US 82nd Airborne, they still outclass them in firepower and mobility. The Wiesel Tankette is the perfect airborne firepower vehicle.
