Remember when NATO frowned upon the Libyan rebels having tanks? Well, things have changed significantly on that front. Our friends at RAW posted this video earlier this week showing a Libyan rebel tank column ready to move towards the front at the oil-terminal city of Brega.
The machine-gun mounted pick-up trucks that had been the only "armor" the rebels previously had to work with now follow behind the captured tanks that formerly belonged to Moammar Gadhafi's forces. A rebel source contacted overnight tells me there is much better coordination with NATO now, reducing the chance of alliance warplanes accidentally bombing their well-armed allies on the ground.
