You really want me to prove its fake? So be it.
--evidence and explanation--
An AK-47 uses a 7.62 x 39 mm round that has a velocity of +/- 2,330 feet per second.
According to THIS VIDEO
that is cut to 87 hundredths of a second long, it took 80
hundredths of a second for the bullet to travel from the muzzle to the dirt.
That would mean the gun is 1,864 feet away from the landing zone of
the bullet. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that the camera guy, and the guy holding the ballistic plate IS NOT 1,864 feet apart. 1,864
feet is equal to 5.1777 professional football fields.
Also according to the video it took the guy holding the ballistic plate 21 seconds to run from the camera, to the spot where he holds up the plate. If
the distance was 1,864 feet, that would mean the guy holding the plate ran 88.76 feet a second, that is 60.51 Miles Per Hour. The worlds fastest man
can only run 328 feet in 9.77 seconds, that is 33.57 feet per second. If the soldier holding the ballistic plate ran 88.76 feet per second, and the
worlds fastest man alive can only run 33.57 feet per second. I think the soldier is in the wrong profession, and he should probably try out for the
Besides the slow bullet, and the ultra fast human soldier. Take a look at the guy just to the left of the soldier holding the ballistic plate. The
soldier appears in view 3 times, each time he is shown, it appears that he goes from a "normal" stance to an "aimed" stance.
Was he aiming a gun? Was he aiming a slingshot or wrist rocket loaded with a rock? It
Closer examination of the leg that was supposedly hit by a 7.62mm bullet, shows that NOTHING HIT. After the shot of the bullet, the solider drops the
ballistic plate and leans over to grab his leg. The very second he leans down, his pants make a crease because of his leaning forward movement. That
crease makes it appear as though something moved his pants, but it was his movement alone that made the crease appear. That fact that the crease
doesn't appear until he moves his body proves that a bullet didn't hit. Also, the crease in his pants reflect the sun. If he was really hit by a
bullet in that spot, there would be obvious markings of a hole created by the bullet, but no hole is visible.
Another thing to point out is the soldiers reaction. One wouldn't react to a bullet shot until it happens. According to
THIS SPLIT VIDEO
he reacts to the bullet, even though nothing hit his leg. Trust me when I say your
leg would move the second you get hit by this massive bullet. His leg never moved, neither did his pants, until AFTER he leans forward. So when the
video replays the shot in the leg in slow motion, with the blackout around the leg, it is showing NOTHING but a crease made in the pants because of
Now, listen to the sound alone, play the video but close your eyes. Every time the soldier replies to the camera mans questions, it sounds as though
the answers were edited in. Or at least they edited the sound's output to raise the volume of the soldier to make it more easy to hear. Now pay
attention to the questions and answers:
Soldier Target: "Whered' it go?"
Camera Man: "I don't know did you see it?"
Soldier Target: "No"
Camera Man: "Did it hit it?"
Soldier Target: "I don't think so, my arms didn't move."
These few sentences alone, prove they are VERY BAD ACTORS. Either both the camera man and the soldier target are BLIND AS A BATT. Or they are
"Playing Dumb". If a bullet from any sized gun, was being shot towards you holding a target, you would instantly know if that target was hit or not.
You would NOT say "I dont think so, my arms didn't move". You would either look at the target to examine it for a hole, or you would just instantly
This is a VERY pathetic job of acting, and special effects. And it is not even close to being real, it is certainly fake. It was filmed as an example
of "what not to do", to prevent really unneeded accidents. Hence the reason why it was filmed by the U.S. Army Combat Readiness Center, also known
as the U.S. Army Safety Center.
What makes me even more curious is why on earth would they test a ballistic plate that is previously rated to handle a 7.62mm M80 Ball round? If it
says 7.62mm M-80 Ball Protection on the vest, you better believe it can handle that round, because peoples lives are on the line.
