I am an Apache pilot. The video from an Apache looks that clear up to 5 miles away in zoom. Yes, it could be they were very far away and the enemy
never heard/saw/knew what/where it was coming from. Apaches hover fairly quietly, especially over a mile away. Unclassified range of the gun is out
over a mile or 2. it is avery accurate. Answer to shooting the wounded.... many, many times a crew has left the wounded to either die a very ugly
death since no medical help was available, and/or the wounded has picked up a stinger or other man held weapon and fired back killing the
crew/aircraft. Safe than dead. War sux. It is what it is.
