  • Description

    Location unknown. Possibly Arizona, New Mexico or Texas, United States of America.

    American motorcycle machine-gun corps (sounds like modern street gangs) practices near the Mexican border; 'under active service conditions'. Shot of motorcycles crossing south west type terrain - lots of low scraggly bushes; sagebrush etc. Motorcycles driving on path; toward camera. All have sidecars with more soldiers in them. Also driving up road is an odd looking small armoured vehicle. This weird 'tank' and the motorcycles come to a stop. Shot of battle simulation in progress: soldier lying on stomach shooting a machine gun. War games in Arizona or New Mexico or Texas.

    Military; USA

    G 416 B.
