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.

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.

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)
