    This is an older video but since we got permission to share it with you guys we wanted to share this one with you since it has some pretty educational value when it comes to close quarter ambushes and proper reaction to it.

      Are they actually taking any fire beyond the initial shots? Hard to tell where the sound is coming from, but doesn't seem like it

    This guy is some kind of leader. Everyone else is taking cover like any sane person would and he's checking on his dudes, communicating with his leadership, and laying down hurt on the enemy. What a baller.

    That guy who ran in front of the squad leader while he was actively shooting is either the luckiest man alive or he had a guardian angel looking over him. The squad leader would have 100% shot him except for the fact that his gun jammed at that exact moment. Insane.

    The soldier filming has a good, calm first reaction. He responds with gunfire while still sitting, lowers rifle when his buddy runs past without looking, clears a jam in his rifle, and the first words that come out of his mouth before he moves to cover is “Anybody hit?”

    The soldier standing up firing while the other members take cover seems incredibly invincible. He's literally standing and shooting! For a second I wondered if this was training practice or a simulation. Either way this takes a lot of guts that most people don't possess.

      @Jahangir Akbar the Taliban won through political means. They procured a peace agreement witht the ISAF and then toppled the Afghan Government when the ISAF pulled out. The ISAF controlled Afghanistan for over 20 years. Meanwhile the Taliban hid in the mountains and ran into Pakistan anytime they took contact. The Taliban actually killed more Afghans than they did the ISAF.

    Is the guy recording a squad leader? I hope he is. Its awesome to see him fighting while simultaneously keeping his situational awareness up. I also like the way he doesn't have to repeat himself. After he recovers whatever it was he went to get he told the other two guys to move over and cover down and they did it with no hesitation. I know our military is one of the best if not the best in the world, but to watch this and be able to see the bigger picture is fucking awesome. Good luck and thanks to all our brave men and women in uniform. You'll always have my respect and admiration.

      No discipline at all. Gun jammed. Both of them made HUGE mistakes and the only reason he didn't shoot his teammate in the back is because his gun jammed at that exact moment.

      Jamsheed RPG GOD Year ago +33

      @Ryan Blasphemous its the camera not being able to process that level of brightness, could be defected or simply an issue of that cameras time. It all depends on the censor, CMOS censors are known for causing black pixels when overexposed and depending on how hot it was during the ambush (its afghanistan so probably hot as fuck) it could have been a factor in causing the black pixels.

    Helmet cam soldier is first class, not only does he avert a blue on blue during first contact but he proceeded to take command of the situation in a calm controlled manner. The soldier who crossed his muzzle needs to be spoken to about discipline as he could have killed himself and, depending on the first guys reaction, could have caused chaos among his own men 🤔 Good work from camera guy 👍👍🏾🖕🏿🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲

      GuitarJacob123 Month ago

      @За Монолит Any sane army usually has a 90 degree total forbidding of shooting, meaning you can never shoot if a friend is within 90 degree (45 each side) of fire angle. What happens is the video is an insanely stupid risk that could have killed the entire squad and is the exact opposite of muscle discipline.

    • За Монолит

      @GuitarJacob123 shit changes when you have nowhere to take cover and have 2 choices,
      Choice A, stand there and be shot dead by taliban.
      Choice B, rush to cover, even though your homie is shooting,
      My point being, in the fog of war, there is not time to react rationally, I get that you train for this sort of issue, but sometimes its as simple as standing in the wrong spot, or shooting to keep the enemy down so he doesnt kill you even as your friend is running in front of you. Its war, shit happens. Aint gonna go to jail though lol
