105mm Howitzer Charge 8 (unexpected outcome) - Afghanistan'
 Part of channel(s): Afghanistan (current event)

This was our first shot in country at a new location and also the first
time we had shot charge 8 out of the tubes while our setup was located
this close to the guns. At our previous location we had knocked down
some clay walls while shooting, so we expected a whallop - but not what
happened.

The view is from the tower cam that we used
for base defense. It is looking straight down at the guns, we were right
at the base of the tower about 75 meters away from the shot went off.
We had to glue everything down after this to continue the mission.

Note: That was not me screaming.
