Night action in Iraq
Linked below is a night vision video from Iraq, showing live action against Iraqi insurgents.The pictures were taken from an AC 130 Specter gunship (plane) two and a half miles away.
The men in the picture are setting up a roadside bomb and planning to ambush an American convoy which followed a short while after the pictures were taken.
They are shown pacing off the distance from the bomb to where the convoy was to pass by.
Turn your sound up. The level of effort these crews put forth to control the enemy's antics is commendable, and their marksmanship with those electronically controlled 40mm cannon is astounding.
