Swiss Vigilance

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXWUCmeUF9o

An award-winning film about the Swiss military made in 1965, posted on Twitter by The Aviation Historian (an account well worth following) here:

Not in English I'm afraid, but well worth 25 mins of your time (less if you skip the intro) just for the gorgeous visuals.

Some highlights:

5:00 - End of the intro

10:00 - Hunters flying through the alps  :wub:

17:00 - Live air-to-ground weapons:
            Hunters with guns, rockets and bombs
            Venoms with napalm
Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

Interesting video.  Bit jingoistic but hey, it's one of the few around about the Swiss in the 1960s.  Lots of great visuals. :thumbsup:
