Operation Enduring Freedom 10 - "Schumacher"

Besides the Americans, Australians and British forces that make up the coalition Special Forces in Afghanistan, there were also Canadians, Danes, French and German Special Forces operating there too. Unlike the GSG9 which is a paramilitary unit, the Kommando Spezialkräfte (KSK) is part of Germany's Special Forces, formed since 1 April, 1997. German troops were actually taking part in combat operations since World War II ended.

Michael (head sculpt resembles that of Michael Schumacher, former Formula One driver, seven-time world champion, and current test driver for Ferrari) is getting ready for patrol. He wears German desert "Flecktam" camouflage BDUs and Body Armor.

Now he's ready for patrol with his Heckler & Koch G36 assault rifle (first time I saw this weapon was in the first Lara Croft movie)

Michael looks more comfortable behind the wheel of a Formula One racing car - LOL :)

Is this uniform set from Armoury?

I believe so - got it some time back. I especially liked the radio sets because the antenna's made of flexible metal like the real thing.
