    Those are American and other coalition aircraft providing training to Iraqi forces in camp taji.

    Camp Taji has a training program for the 'Iraqi Rangers', an SF unit of the regular army, not ISOF. It's overseen by the Australian army and modeled after the 101st US airborne, That's why many coalition helicopters are involved, to train this unit on airborne assault raids.

    Iraqi helicopters are deployed in combat ops so they're not free for training as often

    I've heard from some sf soldiers that their training is way longer than U.S. 75th ranger regiment training (RASP) which is 2 months long. ISF training is around 9 months. And that there is some training performed in Jordan.

    that's true regular iraqi army training is quite short from what i know, the US/UK SF creation of ISOF was a proper success as it's very effective in every way and remained so throughout several wars. Unfortunately the same can't be said for many other units, the ministry of interior's ERD/ERU is also effective. Same for the 9th armored division lately, not so much a few years back though.

    Who knows, the army rangers unit being made in Camp Taji will turn out a success. In my opinion the police forces need to be enabled a lot more to be able to handle the tasks without the army, will have to be quite a strong police force though compared to other countries police duties.

    From what I hear back training for the Iraqi army is 3 months long. And ranger training is 9 months. And you’re correct the police need to take more responsibilities. The army should be on the border and in more isolated regions that ISIS is still operating in at night. The army should adopt a new uniform policy and upgrade equipment as well
