    The Soviets withdrew from Afghanistan in a way that can only be described as expertly.

    NATO was gathering as much information as it could over the last half decade to study exactly how they did it so they could emulate it themselves.

    Previously in past invasions British forces paid heavily during their withdrawal from the region.

    Why should they give a f*ck about afghanistan? If they want to fight terrorism they should start by crushing petrodollar and next israel and the dictatorships like Qatar,Kuwait,Saudis who are financing on orders of USrael and sending terrorists to overthrow and destabilize the region. Fight the cancer not the symptoms.

    The 9th Company (Russian: 9 Рота) is a 2005 Russian film directed by Fedor Bondarchuk and set during the Soviet War in Afghanistan. The film is loosely based on a real-life battle that took place at Elevation 3234 in early 1988, during the last large-scale Soviet military operation (Magistral) in Afghanistan.

    If possible, why the Soviet Union attacked the Afghanistan? And where was she going? To the Pakistan or to the Iran?

    Situation then was the same as now, Soviet Union feared of the spread of Islamic fundamentalism in former soviet Asian republics, their main concern was their boundaries safety with Afghanistan. The difference with now is that USSR faced a large scale guerrilla war that promoted from USA and Pakistan mainly against the Soviet troops

    The soviets weren't "going" any where.

    What the Soviets did in Afghanistan was very similar to what happened in Korea... Before the US got chucked out of Iran in 1979 it was infiltrating Afghanistan, which was a Soviet friendly country. When the Shah was overthrown and the CIA was thrown out of Iran they started moving into Afghanistan.. the Soviets went in to Afghanistan to stop the US creating another Turkey near the Soviet border.

    There was never any consideration to invade Pakistan or Iran and it had nothing at all to do with trying to get warm water ports... they already had Cuba and Vietnam and if they asked possibly Indian ports if they were so desperate for such things.

    the US claim the Soviets invaded Afghanistan so they could then invade Pakistan and get warm water ports was at best a delusion, and at worst a cynical attempt to recruit Pakistani support for opposing the Soviet presence in Afghanistan.

    I have a professionally made British aviation video about Soviet aircraft that identifies an Su-17 as being a MiG-21 several times... if the wing root mounted cannon didn't make it obvious the swing wings certainly gave it away...

    Nice vids BTW... my vote.

    Off Topic

    I have seen a British aviation video about MiG aircraft, which identifies a Lavochkin La-15 as a MiG-15. That was a fortuitous error, as video clips of La-15 were rare at that time. That was the best part of the video actually.

    Hehehe...so long before they were jury rigging rocket pods on light vehicles in Libya they did the same in Afghanistan...

    Those pods look like 80mm pods so they would have quite a bit more punch than the 32 shot 57mm pods being used in Libya.

    80mm rockets being cheap and easy to get near any Soviet airfield... and each one packing about 4kgs of HE punch... twice the warhead weight of an RPG-7 with 20 lined up for a volley... not very accurate but the target will notice... and an excellent anti ambush weapon too... along with the 14.5mm HMG.
