If it's an Apache, it's 30mm.

Re: Helicopter Kills

I don't know if this video is part of it, but I read an article about the hele attacks. The article stated about something to the effect that if they were able to spot some the bad guys immediately after they fired a weapon (or blew up something), that instead of shooting them on the spot, they would follow them back and then pick off whoever they met with as well as the bombers.

Re: Helicopter Kills

unreal. It's almost like a video game.... and yet, the fact that they are real people. It's mindboggling.

It's one thing to be shot at and then you return fire, it's another to be so high above, w/ these night vision images, shooting at moving blobs that mimic human movement. Dunno if I could do that.

Be fast or be last.

Re: Helicopter Kills

I think if you saw your friends getting shot by those "blobs", you wouldn't have much trouble. Maybe after, but not during.

Re: Helicopter Kills

Did you notice the second guy they hit in the video looks like he is uncovering something with cloth over it. He tears at it for a second or two before they blast him. RPG?

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Re: Helicopter Kills

You mean the big piece of artillery they were near, on the left? It was still white hot from being fired recently. You could make out the barrel.

Re: Helicopter Kills

I keep thinking. If the 3rd dude that hid underneath the truck hadn't moved, would he have survived? Probably not eh? I assume they would have blown up all the vehicles anyway?
