But how's about 11 years in the 'forces'
10 operational tours
Countless other 'deployments'
Where the majority of time, my work has been predominantly done at night, including with the use of mortar illum.
I'm a (semi)qualified MFC ( mortar fire controller ) and have called in these illum plans myself
And have seen illum drops and spreads more times than I can remember
I'll admit on the first and second light I was watching, wondering, the third and fourth intrigued but the fifth and sixth and the way they then drifted/moved made me instantly think illum fire mission
Notice I say semi qualified .......I'm no mortar geek .....more .......needed the skill to call in tubes effectively so got dropped on an MFC course...... But mortar geeks will tell you how they go up through 11 different layers of wind blah blah blah and again the layers the illum round falls through ....this is why you don't see uniform drift
I may be wrong it maybe an annunaki recon or strike ship .......but for now .....with the quality of the video I'm more inclined to a mortar illum task from a 2 tube det
If the vid was longer that could indicate possible burn time, then I could say for sure, but he stopped filming .......in the middle of a UFO sightingedit on 26-9-2012 by Neocrusader because: Added
Also ......mortars are an area weapon .....when the first round is fired the tube 'beds in' under the recoil so the next round falls in a slightly different position due to that small movement of the tube.... The second round will again 'bed in' the mortar a little more so the third round will fall in a slightly different position again ...and so on .....factor in changes in wind strength and direction through those 11 layers of wind ......well I hope you get the pictureedit on 26-9-2012 by Neocrusader because: (no reason given)edit on 26-9-2012 by Neocrusader because: Auto
