@ Mr Crane,



Could you be refering to this?



http://www.longwarjournal.org/threat-matrix/archives/2011/07/the_uss_overhyped_provision_of.php



Then there is the recent visit by the Israeli military top brass to selected African countries-Ethiopia,Kenya,Uganda etc whose purpose was seen as marketing the Israeli drone. I can't find the link now, but will post it as soon as i find it.

Though I am back in class, god help me, I have followed this Drones debate with some trepidations, coz I think there is some disinformation being seeded here.

From my present understanding, and I have asked for validation, (a) the variant UPDF received from the Americans is the Infantry-launch variant with specific tasking as a tactic battle-field advance recon utility. Clearly though it lacks an offensive capabilities, this equipment does requires greater and more specific/specialised development of the user-troop, an enhanced command and control capabilities, not presently available with the UPDF, and is usable in defined constricted conditions such as a very fluid, very asymmetric, very brutal / savage situations borderline on the Geneva Convention on Military conflict – ergo, it is a very serious aggravation of War. I reckon that none of the Threat Matrix we all face in Kenyana would justify substantive inclusion of these utilities into our theatre- only Four of these were delivered to UGABAG6. These are however very useful for laser-targeting on a limited battlefield in Afghanistan.

(b) even the Israeli variant has a bias more to surveillance for a porous, hostile, active border with an tactical offensive ability integrated into a larger system, than tactical aggressor-recon capability on a reduced battlefield. Obviously the Israelis would not off-load any such without the concurrence of Uncle Sam – The Chinese have really altered things in the world, by gawd!!

@ ole Nkarei, I feel you bro about classes every other time. Believe me, you are not alone.

Straight to the point(s). These stories about which command and control capabilities UPDF doesn't have and stuff, they are beginning to look, for lack of a better word, stale. Those drones don't need any of that, they are field kit that a battalion can use to stream video about enemy strengths, deployment etc directly to a monitor (in a tent or some tree shade command post). Period.

The Americans who provided them know UPDF's capabilities and were confident we could use them. Talking of capabilities, wikileaks has an earful of about Kenyan military capabilities. The cables come in the wake of the Jubaland initiative. Zenawi, the Djibouti PM, M7 and even the Americans themselves give damning assessments of the Kenyan army's ability to pull off the most basic of military operations.

Does anyone want a link?

Yes, link please. I did read a story attributed to the British who kind of trusted the Kenyan APs more than the army. Is this it?

@ Spartan,



How much do we believe of the Wikileaks? I don't think everything there in is necessarily true.

Anyway waiting for the link as indicated above. Separately mJeshi mMoja has posted useful information about the drones in the Kenyan page. Apparently UG has also purchased 2 drones from Israel. I believe these are in addition to the 4 given by the US.

Hey Bro, I don’t intend to give offense at all. But we can dispassionately call a spade a spade, between Uniforms, no? It does gall one for certain when negative assessments are made but it is not my intention to cast aspersions on comrades in uniform.

I suppose if one choses to restrict the definition of ‘Command and Control’ to a basic Unit level, then your point is quite valid. Now, bearing in mind the extremely specialised nature these 10KM range, 2Kg tare-weight full-laden, 90 minutes maxi flight-time, drones will serve, due to their absolute lack of either (i)offensive capacity or (ii) tactical battlefield versatility – as they will simply just provide raw/immediate intelligence AT BASIC UNIT LEVEL, in a small cyclic radius, even the basic Unit will require greater specialisation in training ability and leadership to properly utilise them. Not to mention that their interfacing with general command necessarily requires greater specialisation of equipment and .ability of Coordination than presently available with UGABAG6.

As concerns the Wikileaks expose on American Diplomats gossips, - c’mon Spartan!! You know as I do that in Intel terms, there is no probative value to these gossips. There are intended to trigger validation by the Intelligence bodies, that is all!! A weather balloon, really. Not one of these exposes is credited to a body whose statutory purpose is the validation of information for immediate consumption.

Meles and M7 are all in competition with the Ole Man for the attentions of Uncle Sam’s Billions of this War-against-terror Chest.

They do not have to interface with general command and control, that's for the big boys - USA, UK if you know what I mean. Uganda has not claimed to belong to that club, neither has UGABAG6. And if I were the C.O of a battalion in hostile environs, I wouldn't want decisions concerning the safety of my men to be made by some generals in air conditioned 'Control Rooms'.

Now about the 'gossip', you haven't read it yet, have you? It is the views of people who have waged wars and could be your potential adversaries.

@ ole Nkarei, welcome back from class.

Call the reports 'weepy' and all. The fact is, regional leaders did not have faith in a Kenyan operation to capture Kismayo, and made their feelings known to the Americans and Brits. And they believed them. If that's what you call weepy, we are on the same page.

Well, we all know the reasons for all these and i believe you do also bro Spartan. The lack of faith has nothing to do with Kenyan military capabilities, but rather on the likelyhood of success. The reason is that it is much easier for Uganda and Ethiopia to wage a war in Somalia and win than it is for Kenya. This is because for the Kenyan case, a large size of the force is composed of ethnic Somalis who are more likely to side with their kin on the ground hence hampering the chance for success.

I' am referring to engagements deep in Somalia sir. These we have to approach with caution given the ethnic mix of our forces especially with regard to Somalia. Elsewhere this cannot be a problem.

Vitruvian, good question that, buddy. I think in the last year or so we have been back and forth on just this pesky query, and the answers are as many as the situation is completx.

Olekoima does make a good point about this. But I reckon that even on a common threat like that from Al-Shabaaba/Al-Qaeda in Somalia, it represents different Matrixes to Kenya, Ethiopia Uganda, because the dynamics are entirely different. Hence, the Philosophy that drives Policies to counter this common threat must necessarily be different. Whileas Ethiopia seek to annihilate this threat and be damed with the costs of it, Kenya develops a containment policy to allow for appropriate assimilation and enculturalization - which is inevitable given the demography of the region. Many ways to skin a cat, I reckon.

http://www.armybase.us/2009/01/fc-1-jf-17-is-the-most-popular-chinese-military-exports-to-africa/

Sometimes the Gumboot Army can come across as quite "well fed". Luckily, these ones were returning and not going for active duty.

On the other hand Spartan, i hope you don't expect us to believe that the UPDF is uniformly kitted with Kevlar BP vests and new gen imperial helmets.

Soldiers aren't supposed to gain weight bila mupango, gentlemen. Unless of course if they are in some country where the army is a career army doesn't go to war and has no plans to do it. Uganda is the only country in this region which feeds itself (and a great deal of Western Kenya and South Sudan), remember? Gaining weight shouldn't be a problem for any Ugandan, as long as you aren't in the UPDF, that is.

As for the kit, I don't know what you meant, bro. Elaborate. But you could start from here: almost everyone in the UPDF will have been to Somalia by the end of the year.

@ The gumboot issue.
I wonder why someone can deliberate about UPDF wearing Gumboot while we buy some of the most expensive military equipment in the region. The UPDF wear gumboot due to the terrain that we move in. Gumboot covers a large potion of the leg when moving in mashy areas. We use those boot for a purpose gentlemen and not by default. Are we done with gumboots boy!!!

jasiri, I gather from your comments here that you have little personal experience in any uniform, school uniforms aside. Half of your country has conditions similar to Somalia's. Do your troops wear sandals when there? I find some of your comments, frankly, condescending and contemptible.

And I think you can do better than that.

of course i can do better than that spartan. However Crane reasons that you ned gumboots coz of marshy areas right? Kenya has such conditions too yet we don't wear gumboots. This is not about KDF's footwear but UPDF footwear going by what Crane here has tod us. Surelly if gumboots are used for marshlands in the UPDF then i half expect sandals for hot and dry.



By the way, u are right. I do not pretend to have experiences in any uniforms other than school uniforms.
