Checkout Photos Of Some Dangerous Weapons Seen In The Hands Of Boko Haram Terrorists

Some sophisticated weapons has fallen into the hands of a powerful enemy: The terrorist group known as Boko Haram.

All types of military vehicles – from Toyota hilux trucks, SUVs to Armoured vehicles, AK-47s and RPGs – have been identified as being captured by the jihadist group ISIS in their campaigns across swathes of Northeast Nigeria and sorrounding countries like Chad, Niger and Cameroon.

In a video recently released by the Shekau faction of Boko Haram, there are some notable weapons sighted in this video. These weapons includes; Zastava M21 S, NSV HMG, technical with a howitzer which seems to be an OTO Melara Mod 56 and a possible Norinco LG4 Revolver GL.

Also visible in the screenshots are some 7.62x39mm AK platform rifles —including a possible Romanian PM md. 90 and Type 56(-2)— are also can be seen as usual. Type 69 RPG LNCHR with PG-7V/T69-1 rocket and PK/Type 80 GPMGs can be seen —note the stockless GPMG.

Problematically, however, when military bases have been defeated by Boko Haram, the group has commandeered their weapons too, strengthening their arsenal further and leaving the Nigerian security forces little option but to fight an enemy using its own weapons against it.
