  • Does anyone ever get combat footage where the enemy is closer than a 1/4 mile away?

  • The supersonic crack (the click at 0.00) propagates at right angles to the direction of travel of the bullet so, the apparent direction of the crack is almost guaranteed not to be the direction from which the bullet is actually fired. The crack might not sound very loud but much of its energy is in the ultrasonic region beyond human hearing and its actually a very high amplitude signal.

  • It always seems like the insurgents know where our troops are, but our troops have no idea where they are. They just throw lead in a general direction guessing. I know they have a device on vehicles that gives you a precise direction fire is coming from by analyzing sound waves. Theres got to be a way to make that smaller and portable. With all the technology we have this just seems arkaik.

      You're right and there is. I worked on a system for a couple of years but there are also a number of other systems on the market. But, getting equipment onto the soldier is not easy, it has to go through endless rounds of testing and demonstration and, in the end, someone has to pay for it. A soldier is a blunt instrument and, in the end its about M16's and kicking down doors.

    • @FutboleroR10 Because its a helmet cam not an eye-piece cam, you cant see if he is aiming or not. When they aren't aiming though I guess it just because they don't know the exact posistion of the enemy and just want to get some rounds down range in the general direction in which they are.

      it's probably easier to find your enemy by looking through your scope than by just randomly fireing though

      yes, you can fire it at the range too... i can't say i have ever been to a war but i had military training and i always preferred other people to draw fire on them and carry a shitload of weight with them for days over having to do that myself. maybe the difference is, that in actual wars people don't have to walk as much as in military exercises.

  • Yeah, the troop in the foreground heard several rounds go flying fight past his head thanks to the cameraman behind him.
