Apache A64 Killing Video (graphic content)

#1
An apology if this has already appeared as a thread. A mate of mine has just sent to my phone the video of an Apache A64 taking out personnel and a few trucks! Is this for real?

Sorry mate, it may look great to you, but glorifying the death of fellow human beings isn't exactly the ethos of the British Army now is it?

It sends out the wrong message.

Compare with the case of Pte Clegg:

Exactly what threat were they exhibiting?
Was it necessary to do anything other than destroy/disable the vehicles?
Are the coalition forces portrayed as decent, honourable, and just people or callous crusaders?
If that had been an AAC gun camera how quickly would SIB have paid a visit?

Killing for fun kills a little bit of your soul and washes away some of your honour every time you do it.

I remember seeing this film on TV. Didn't the crew receive a court-martial for this incident?

You need to see the whole footage (about 15 minutes long). You may see that the site with Harry Boomers link is being a bit selective. The footage on the link just shows the result not the reason.

Not quite so innocent tractor and truck. :wink:

Longer clip

This may give a bit more information.


(Its about 12mb so you pikies without broadband will have to try and watch it through Dixons window).
The site mentions 30mm Howitzer rounds, not a chain gun, or are the spams suddenly buying their weaponry from Toy'R'Us now?

The guys were not "so innocent" if you watch the clip you can clearly see them going back for a RPG! I dont agree with it, but if they were a threat to me in my nice jellycopter who knows........

None the less Flash, we shouldn't be showing it on this site. Other sites may get their kicks from it, but parading it here on ARRSE, shows us in the eyes of others as something we are not. Showing just the 'edited' bit merely highlights the beliefs others have of us.

It's just not British Old Chap.

Flasheart is right. In the full length version you get to see what looks to be missile\rocket launcher being handled and passed around. In fact in the footage off that site you can see one of the targets tearing the cover off it trying to get it prepped before being hit. There was nothing innocent about the activities being filmed through the sights.
