This one's making the rounds again . . . the guys I work with on the other side of the Pond sent it in this morning . . . I first saw this clip about five years ago . . . I guess it takes some time to make it over there to PommyLand . . . anyhow it's a great clip; it cheers me up to watch it again, in fact it warms the cockles of my heart . . . S.L.
This video was actually made by the Bad Guys. The cameraman is filming his friend as he praises Allah and launches mortar shots at American troops. Little does he know that new mortar shell tracking technology can track the trajectory of a hostile round and fire a retaliatory shot to precisely the spot from which the hostile shell was fired. This only requires the hostile mortar to fire 2 to 3 rounds.
Count the number of mortar rounds the masked insurgent fires in the video. See how well it works. If you listen carefully you can hear the single round from the American artillery fired in the distance. It comes just after the terrorist fires his third round - and his fourth round drops down the tube but that's as far as it gets.
Edit: This is the way the story appears when it circulates on the Internet. Other people are saying that this is incorrect, that the round itself exploded before being fired. Either way, good riddance to bad psychotic rubbish.
No more Allahu Akbars from this source! God Bless America and our Troops!
Isn't technology wonderful?
