So i am back for a few days before i head back to work. In my last post i did not mention what i was doing. I was currently finishing off my military boot camp course. The second portion of it. Also known as BMQ Land (Soldier Qualifications). So i will keep this post short, as my writing skill has diminished a little. "BMQ" stands for "Basic Military Qualifications". "Land" means what side of the military I am on. In this case Land is well land and not air or naval.

Course details(what i learned):

M72 Rocket Propelled Grenade (SRAAW (L))
C13 Fragmentation grenade
C9 Light Machine Gun
C6 General Purpose Machine Gun

Platoon Attacks
Section Attacks

Recce Patrols

Offensive and Defensive Operations

How to dig and man a trench and not sleep for a week straight

The last point was the highlight of the course. Now i will display a picture of myself and the killing tools I was trained on.


  1. No sleep for a week? I guess I'm not cut out for war. =(

  2. Nice toys. I wish I could get ahold of a couple of those M72s, just because.

  3. Hope you don't actually kill anyone.

  4. Awesome weapons. Here in germany we get qualified for other models like the G36 and the P9. Or the MG3.

  5. Wooaaah Granade Launcher in this case " M72 Rocket Propelled Grenade " awesome i always liked weapons :P

  6. No way no sleep for a week? D: damn dude, that's sick and unhealthy, is it true that you start to allucinate? Hahaha, take care man :)

  7. Sounds pretty nuts. I hope all goes well for you!

  8. Blowing shit up with the M72 would be awesome, not sleeping for a week would suck ass.

  9. Your post reminds me that I should really talk to my dad about what weapons he was trained in. Never really ask about his current army career.

  10. Congratulations! Nice equipment, almost all we can get trained for in my country is Russian-based - AKs, RPGs, etc.
