Oh cool, the Japanese are entertaining their people by blowing stuff up for an audience. Thats nice of them, why cant we get neat demonstrations of power for an audience here in the states? Like a 4th of July blowout in the Grand Canyon?? Sure would be something fun to do for the people.

Its actually from October, and the fuller video is on their official channel

So last week, The Mexican marines carried out the first targeted helicopter strike of some terrorists in North America for 2017. It is refreshing to see a renewed effort to combat international terrorists and their drug funding operations from our neighbors in the South.

Video shows several vantage points of a low flying helicopter hovering over a commercial district firing a mini gun at several terrorist firing rifles at the craft, as well as targeting a vehicle with fleeing command personnel. Street cameras and other CCTV show the vehicle being struck, as well as the armed men attempting to fire at them from the street.
The police impound and tow away several vehicles at the end, including the one struck from the air.

You do realise some of that footage in the video is from the failed Turkish military coup?

Oh, yea looks like those guys shooting at the chopper are Turkish personnel. What are they doing in Mexico?? Haha j/k. So the first video is 0-32 seconds is the mexican marines, 33 seconds to 1:22 is turkey helicopter coup strike, then the police taking their cars after 1:23 seconds. This is a different video of only the helicopter reported in Mexico until a better one I can find.

Yup someone has stitched together 3 different videos to try and make it look like one video. The helicopter video yes is the one in Mexico and the ground footage of people shooting up at the sky and the video of bullets hitting a driveway is also from Turkey. The video of cars being taken away is again from Mexico

I don't think I had that video in this thread anyways, so luckily it still fits. Thanks for the heads up! Spain is set to deploy some units to the Baltics this summer, so I will be keeping an eye on that.

IHS Jane's 360
The Spanish Army is understood to be sending a heavy armoured unit abroad for the first time as part of the NATO mission to bolster the defences of the Baltic republics.

The Leopard 2E main battle tanks (MBT) are scheduled to leave mid-May, supported by soldiers from the Extremadura XI Mechanized Infantry Brigade, according to military sources cited by the Spanish newspaper ABC .

The report states that six tanks and around 15 Pizarro armoured fighting vehicles will form part of a multinational battalion led by Canada in Latvia. The army declined to comment to Jane's about the report.

Latvia is one of the three Baltic republics along with Poland that are receiving additional defence support from NATO in response to a perceived threat from Russia following the latter's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.

The Spanish deployment is now expected to involve some 350 troops, including a logistics unit and a team of engineers, which would make Spain the second biggest contributor after Canada to the Latvian-based Battalion. Other countries due to be involved in the battalion are Italy, Poland, Slovakia and Albania.

No problem
sorry if my replies come across as stuck up or rude I think I watch to many military/war videos hah. Thanks for posting them though some of them are a joy to watch especially ones like the Japanese live fire demonstration videos

Thats what I am talking about! I have been begging for years for the Pentagon to offer something similar for our citizens to enjoy. We have two annual holidays where blowing stuff up is not just a given, its expected! Where is our live fire demonstration dammit?!

as the Syrian Defense forces make their gains towards the liberation of Raqqa they are met with stiff resistance. It appears to me, that this guy was surrounded and alone, detected the guys coming from the roof, and was anticipating the crew to be right around the corner. Hoping to go out in a blaze of fury, he jumped out and pushed the button, only to see they just were not close enough
. Thankfully these localized Kurdish and Arab paramilitaries sustained no casualty from this kamikaze bastard! Helluva close call though. Any Atheist even would be thanking God after dodging that bullet.

Indian army engages militants from Myanmar on the border.

This video covers at least three different fronts from the perspectives of local jihadi rebels, the SAA (syrian forces), Turkish/FSA coalition, and Daesh/ISIS. Its gritty, and all kinds of ground and air weapons platforms are deployed. Covers Daraa, Palmyra, Al-bab, and Latakia mountains from the last two weeks. Included is also the first use of TOW ATGM by rebels in Syria for the month of February. I assume many were destroyed or captured when Aleppo city was liberated. Nothing but high octane intense war from start to finish.

Graphic content warnings from 4:00 - 4:30 (neutralized militants) and from 12:00 - 14:15 (collateral damage from Turkish air and artillery strikes. Injured civilians)

Turkey says Al-Bab completely captured from jihadists. Turkey backed jihadists. Now what? SAA will capture it from these rebels later? They can't keep it, can they?
I won't applaud. It's such a mess. They are all mad. Who can look at the vid, see the suffering of those children and the old shaking man too and stay calm. It's so sad and unacceptable.
Your reporting is ok but it's lacking
-your opinion
-and almost any response
A cold documenting. Try creating new threads. Here is obviously only a couple of people coming for the news, enjoying the action part and skipping the emotional aftermath.

Yea I thought about doing a thread for Al-Bab recently being captured, but I figured others would jump in. I usually offer a quick synopsis of whats happening, for those who cannot watch a video on the moment. This really was mostly just for video highlights starting from direct Russian action against NATO encroachment in Georgia in 2009 through present. Although, sometimes I get the wrong video.

In my perspective, the amount of its own land that Syria gets to keep depends on who gets the Berlin Raqqa first and/or whether it suffers a similar partition that Germany did in WW2. If the SAA/Russian coalition can get Raqqa first, most of Syria's borders will remain unchanged, save for some contested areas along the North with Turkey.
If the SDF/NATO coalition get their first, Syria is going to get all messed up and checkered with multiple parties laying claim to territory. Kind of similar to the West Bank and the contrasting Israeli settlements.

Thats my analysis, and we should see who is where by Memorial Day to make a strong inference as to who will likely succeed first.

A recent attempt at a surprise attack by ISIS on Iraqi Hezbollah militia outside Tal Afar air base North West of Mosul. It was unsuccessful, all assailants were neutralized in a trench after their drones were shot down and vehicles blown apart. They made the video stylized a bit with some graphics, perhaps for domestic propaganda consumption.

Alot has been going on, but I have not been on the computer much. I will just pick up from the last day. Recently the US soldiers have entered the town of Manbij which was recently captured by the Syrian Defense Forces also backed by the US coalition. Turkey and the FSA attempted to take it back, but failed in an offensive which they lost an armored vehicle to ATGM.

Published on Mar 8, 2017

The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has claimed that they killed a plethora of Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters in a village to the west of Syria's Manbij.

The SDF, who are made up primarily of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), killed 16 members of the predominately Turkmen batallions of the FSA in Al-Bughaz on Tuesday night.

The SDF captured the village only yesterday, pushing the FSA with the backing of the Turkish military to hastily launch an offensive to take it.

In the failed assault, an armored vehicle was also neutralized by the Kurdish-led forces.

Sporadic skirmishes have continued today.

Meanwhile, Turkey sent a new batch of T155 FIRTINA artillery tanks across its border to join the Manbij front line.

The YPG are the Syrian extension of the Kurdistan Worker’s Party, a militant group that Ankara recognizes as a terrorist organization as it has led a decades long insurgency to get Kurdish autonomy in eastern Turkey.

After seeing those last two, and seeing all these exercises we did with the South, it is kind of hard to take the North's threats any kind of serious.

With THAAD and drones deployed in the South as well, its checkmate for NK, and China is just going to have to accept it like Russia when we moved into Afghanistan and Ukraine.

Well we got some stuff to add.
Libya's internationally recognized government lost a Mig-21 recently when it was shot down over Benghazi. The pilot ejected safely

He added that the aircraft, which had been hit by the projectile fired by “terrorist groups”, crashed in Suq al-Hut district of the coastal city, after it successfully conducted an aerial raid against the last bastion of “extremists” in Benghazi’s Mediterranean seafront district of al-Saberi.

They lost another Mig-21 earlier this month.

And a Saudi Airbase was hit by a SCUD missile also recently.

he Yemeni military reportedly launched a long-range ballistic missile towards the Saudi capital tonight, targeting the King Salman Airbase near Riyadh City.

There has been no confirmation whether or not the missile hit its intended target; however, the Saudi military has now been put on high alert.

Tonight’s launching marks the second time in six months that the Yemeni military has targeted the Saudi capital with a long-range ballistic missile.

And some more Houthi attacks out of Yemen.
