Newly arrived Pandur armoured personnel carriers, that reinforced Czech contribution to ISAF mission in Afghanistan, accomplished their first live fires at a range near Kabul.

The live fires of four wheeled PANDUR II CZ M1 armoured personnel carriers were held at the Black Horse Base close to Kabul on the second January week.
