Looks like the Dutch are gonna settle down in Afghanistan :)

But can someone with knowledge about the Afghan Terrain tell me why the Donkeys? I mean, is it necessary, or are they gonna be shields in firefights with the taliban?

and slow speed.

they plan to move at the speed of an ASS now.

There is a reason why the dutch pay tax, it so that their troops can then use all the modern convinces like helicopters and Motorized transport.

Clearly some one made a horrible mistake

May this be a lesson to all To DRDO critics.
they never turned around and presented the Indian army with Donkey's , for their troops operating in mountain areas and rough terrain.

It may take them 20 years and budget overruns, but they come out with a product.
