French Foreign Legion Engage Taliban in Intense Firefight

Published July 22, 2021

Not a lot of information on this firefight in particular, however this intense fight in Afghanistan gets the blood pumping! This short clip captures the moments a squad of French Foreign Legion troops are pinned down by Taliban gunfire.


By the sounds of distant gunfire, the soldiers in the footage seem to have an additional unit providing heavy cover fire for them. Going off audio purely, it sounds to me like a vehicle mounted 25mm is laying down some heat as well. You let us know what you think in the comments below.


For those unfamiliar with the French Foreign Legion, it is a sub-branch within the French Army which was established in 1831, where soldiers are given the opportunity for a higher level of infantry training. In addition to the higher level of training, non-French individuals who have sworn service to the Legion are given the opportunity for French citizenship after five years of service.


If anyone has the extended version of this footage, please shoot us an email.
