Yeah we were sitting in our up-armored humvee we were fine. But a 2.75" HE rocket is still plenty to ruin your day if it hits you.

Luckily for the pilot he missed. We were with the MEU CO, SgtMaj, the Bn Gunner, my EOD team and the Docs w/the medical officer.

This looks like a faked event to me.
I'll watch it again, but it looks like video sorcery!


What raises your suspicions?

They reported two serious injuries, so it was most likely sound related injuries. That kind of blast, that close would probably be at least as bad as being near a flash bang going off and mess you up pretty good.

The initial launch, the exhaust looks a bit cartoonish.
The explosion, the shrapnel looks too "in-focus"
the aftermath, cameraman able to take video but no shot of the impact area, and the person who is walking away, they seem to be just strolling away from the scene..

those are really just my initial impressions.

According to the reports, and you can take them or leave them, this was the media area. The target for the helicopter was further down the range, and there was either a short when he armed the weapons and they fired, or the target was misidentified and they fired early.

The guy has slight injuries but he's fine. Heres a better view of what happened.

Here, another angle, this camera is a bit more to the right. Sorry, it´s a gif, couldn´t find the video yet.
Ka-52 hits friendly units during the Zapad 2017 exercise
In that video you can see that not only civilian cars were parked there, but military material.
And exactly that material was hit.
Maybe the spectators were the idiots and had nothing to search there???


Edit:
Thanks to the LotLizard, when i checked YT and LL before30 minutes to an hour, the video wasn´t there...

That's fair enough. For the record I wasn't asking because I thought you were talking rubbish I was more intrigued as to what you saw that may of made you question the video

My personal favorite was the time the F-16 strafed a couple military guys in an SUV in Utah. Apparently they left brown streaks behind them on the way out the doors.


I remember an A-7 pilot who forgot to safe his cannon having an accidental discharge while landing at Cecil Field. The rounds went down the runway and hit a UPS truck traveling down 103rd. Street.

A crew chief on B-52s in Vietnam got shot at by his airplane. He was less than 10 days from going home, and told his boss he wasn't going out on the ramp until he got on his freedom flight.

They were three rockets, not a gun.

Looks like a hardware problem off the HUD...The big X is the laser designator isnt it?
Circle is radar looking for targets I think.
Im trying to find vid of a T72 or T80 at a demonstration day that misfires its autoloader internally causing the crew to bailout with the tank full of smoke..
