Counter Battery Fire

Posted by Warren Peterson on May 12, 2010

A friend sent the following You Tube video from November 2007 and his comments; not for the squeamish:

Allah answers the call . . .

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.

No more Allah Akbar’s from this source!
