Good to watch, incredible that someone should attempt this ? Then again ... look around you ...
7.62 short from approx 2-300m, first round strikes low/left, wonder where the next one's gonna strike ... the guy holding the plate is in the wrong job, the guy(s) spotting/filming are also taking the p**s surely.
Someone please prove me wrong, but I think this is genuine (recent) footage ?
I beg to point out that the brain donors were americans and since I have not heard of any british troops trying out the ballistic capabilities of their armour. I cannot believe that they would be so stupid to do this.
I dont think that the guys doing the shooting and holding the plate are septics, they wouldnt need an interpreter and speak in a foreign language if they were. Middle eastern maybe? Is that the old Inshallah in action?
ie if my times not up then even if I stand 200m away from some dude in the standing unsupported with iron sights nothing can possibly go wrong!!! Scary.
I saw the impact of the first round into the bank also, it would appear that they're playing for keeps. You also hear the voices pretty clearly- they're definitely septics, not Canucks or any other variety of colonial.
What a fcukwit, but I guess this is what happens when they take your porn stash off you as soon as you land and you only have Bruce Willis singing songs on a USO tour to entertain you.
Well true they ain't all septics but they do appear to be the ones running the show. Even in my most alcohol affected moments I think I may have baulked at taking part in such a event. As for the question of blanks vs live rounds I favour the latter. You can clearly see the first round hitting the ground and they have even edited the movie to show the impact on the "target holder".
Mind you the death of anyone stupid enough to try this wouldn't be much of a loss to the gene pool.
