    Really nice pictures.

    Do you know if they have filled those spend shells with sand or anything to actually increase protection or is ist just "spaced armor"?

    From the looks of it, it looks like just pure spaced armor.

    I was going to say AK-103, but the shape of the magazine makes me unsure of the caliber...

    Either an AK-74 or perhaps an AK-101, which is an AK-74 in 5.56mm calibre... I think AK-74 in 5.45mm calibre as the 5.56mm mag is almost straight.

    It has an under barrel 40mm grenade launcher and a scope.

    The SAA looks completely spent and exhausted; their vehicles are battered, equipment/uniforms becoming ever more non-standerdised, no time for paint-jobs or cleaning - everything and everyone looks like its been through hell, extensive piecemail field modifications to vehicles, ever more manpower reliance on older men and women... parts of it look more like a militia than a regular army.

    Really, I hope the conflict finishes soon. I'm surprised it's still ongoing. It has entered stalemate long-ago and no-one on any side is in any condition to fight it anymore, nor is there much reason to; other than perhaps finishing off the extremists like ISIS or Al-Nusra. Everyone else should accept negotiations/coalition government/general amnesty/whatever.
