    That was a very interesting video. What did that guy keep shouting when they went to fire? It's kinda weird to see people running. I guess if I'm ever being shot at from the sky, I'm going to realize that I have no chance in hell (unless I run into a mosque).

    Pretty interesting. Impressive how restrained they were - if that had been my voice on that video I can almost guarantee there would've been at least one "motherf**ker" uttered!

    This is gun camera video from an AC-130. I've never seen anything quite like this, and it's fascinating to watch.

    Check that out, if you've got broadband. Be warned, it's 160mb, about 10 minutes long, and show's the enemy being killed.

    Fascinating. It sounded like they were yelling "get ready!" when they were firing.

    The kill shots at the end were pretty awsome. The pilot said something about it making the highlight reel.

    How the HELL did that get out to the public? [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img]

    I think they're yelling "gun ready!" The 105mm and I think the 40mm need ammunition loaded by hand, though I'm not sure on that. The 25mm doesn't. Watching that I'm real impressed with what we can do. I'd always known in theory what a gunship is for, but seeing it in action puts it in a whole other light. The IR stuff is pretty damn incredible.

    I'm not sure how it got public, seen. You'd think the news media would be all over it if it'd been released through channels.

    Gun ready sounds right.

    and yeah, usually any and all operative stuff is classified for what? 5 years automatically regardless of content?

    No idea. In a sense it's not much different than the footage of bombs hitting targets, but the fact that you can see people running for their lives and being hunted down is something I've never seen before. The thing that impressed me most was the communication between the FAC and gunship. When they slewed the camera to the cave entrance, that was amazing. "100 meters west," and they had it right on it. Seeing the people run out of the cave after the first hit surprised me.

    That'll end up taking a little time partner. Better grab a drink.

    I just tried it again here on my home pc and it is coming down between 75 and 150 kbps. I'm using download accelerator, but I'm not sure if that free cheap piece o' shit would affect performance that much.
