Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Dan Robinson, who writes:

In these screen grabs from Spy Ops, an Afghan military leader is shown using an ICOM HT as part of post 9/11 operations against Taliban forces.

Thanks for sharing this, Dan! One can almost read the model number on the HT.

    The second photo (closeup) might be the ICOM IC-V68. It’s the only ICOM I could find that has the keyboard at the top of the front of the radio.

    I couldn’t find anything using my normal search. But I copied the photo into the Google Search Images Lens and Google came up with the V86.

    The HT’s in the photos are not the same…the one with the man speaking into it shows two knobs on the top. The ICOM in the closeup photo shows one – I don’t recall ever seeing an Amateur Icom HT with the keys like that at the top – Icom makes aviation HT’s as well, maybe its one of the Aviation models??
