Pz Gren Bat 29 - Field Exercise May 26th, 2007

Nowadays a very rare sight in Switzerland. I attended a field exercise with the latest Tank Equipment: Leopard 2 and Recovery Tank, APC CV 9030, Mowag Eagle etc. It was held in the Swiss Mountains, at the training area Hinterrhein. It was raining like hell, took me a 4 h drive for 250 km because of the traffic jam befor the 17 km long Gotthard tunnel.

The Unit was the "Panzergrenadierbattalion 29" (Tank Hunter Bat), exercise "U. ATTACCO 29". Firing was with real ammunition.
