In whats being seen as a big step forward for the Afghan National Army, a joint engineering project is underway with British troops in Nar-e Sarajh.

Afghan army engineers take part in practical outdoor training exercises using heavy machinery, including bulldozers and loaders, at Camp Shorabak in Helmand. Whilst the current training is overseen by ISAF there are now efforts in place to train Afghan trainers to provide a sustainable model for future training.
