Mission Afghanistan – Escalation of Force

In the Afghan base in Bagram, the soldiers of the 11th Czech Guard Company are responsible for patrols. When on duty in the MRAP armoured vehicle, they have to be prepared for diverse scenarios such as manoeuvring in the town or encountering a suicide bomber. The training for combatting improvised explosive devices at the local training range has been recorded by Lucie Výborná and Tomáš Černý.
