  • A thankless task. They serve their country, then are given the golden hand shake when they get back. They get fuck all support from local councils for housing, needs, etc. Meanwhile, drug addicts and wife beaters get all the money and help they do not deserve.

    Keep up the good work lads. Here is one citizen (and former attached civilian) who appreciates the job you do.

  • These guys are often forgotten about - without their expertise and ability to keep these machines in action, the casualty rates on our sides could be a LOT higher. It's not as glamourous as being the pilot, but arguably just as, if not more, important.

    • @Commando_Jihad we were not assfucked in iraq. you see what fallujah looks like now? a piece of dog shit thats what. Our country is strong, we toppled the leader of that country and we set up base in your main city. And we gained military strategic experience for fighting in large urban cities. We are dominating the taliban who have resulted to suicide attacks on its people and using civilians to mask their attacks. You sir are the one that is assfucked.

    • @kabuto I wouldnt be proud of dominating taliban who are peasants with ak-47's and they are still causing casualties. That is not winning if you look at Fallujah i'd call it lose.

    • @Conglomerate fallujah was a clear cut victory! But again stupid politicians who have no place calling shots or giving orders in a war. Got in the way of victory during the first surge into fallujah! You need to do some research before making a stupid comment like that !

    • @Muhammad_is_a_pedo Donttt start trolling on the brits now bud!

      he is right , we did make it better , better avionics , Radar and Engine , Its also the only seaborne Apache variant on the globe ...

      American craftmanship is good , but so is British and German

      check your main tank for example , German gun , British Armour

      Its not a competition, they will never fight each other again , only alongside , so you should be pleased that your allies can engineer well :)
