...........pushing up daises!!!
or did it go off?

You can see the designator icon on the HUD.........
funnyer with the aduio on dem vids,
done and done
that will slow them down. These cowards who think its fun to set bombs around and then set them off from afar need to be owned in every way imaginable. Shave their face, stuff 'em full of pig, have a dominatrix spank them with a big copy of the Koran and then put 1/4 pound of c4 in their bungholio and set it off. And put video of all that on Al Jizz-era so every POS in the middle east sees what happens to you when you are a terrorist a-hole.
Anyone have an idea of the ordinance used?
Don't hold back, tell us how you really feel J...
Not that I object in any way, shape, or form to reducing those two to rubble, but that seems like a hell of an expensive way to do it.
That looked like a arial sniper shot to me. I think they used the ordinance the raghead was using to blow them up.
Well on second glance . Either way they wont be doing that anymore. Expensive, well yes. Worth it, damn straight.
I like the bucket of gas and a match treatment better . Play some rap music and watch them do the "oh f--k I'm on fire dance" while throwing pigs blood on them . We need to get mid evil on these bastards and not let up .
My theory is:
A Hellfire missile, remotely designated. From the size of the blast.
The tactical missiles are propelled by a single stage, single thrust, solid propellant motor. When thrust exceeds 500 to 600 pounds, the missile leaves the rail. Based on a 10g acceleration parameter, arming occurs between 150 to 300 meters after launch. Maximum velocity of the missile is 950 miles per hour. Maximum standoff range is a function of missile performance, launch platform altitude versus target altitude, visibility and cloud cover. Remote designation allows the launch aircraft to stand off at greater distances from the target. This standoff range can be out to the maximum missile effective engagement range.
There are different techniques for tactical employment of the Hellfire missile on the battlefield. These techniques are ultimately driven by the two engagement methods by which the missile can be controlled to the target: autonomous and remote. An autonomous engagement requires the aircraft launching the missile to guide it all the way to the target after the missile is away. In this method, a single aircraft and its crew will locate, identify, fire, and guide the missile until destruction of the target in the same way an M2/M3 Bradley crew employs its TOW missiles. In contrast, a remote engagement requires an aircraft to serve as a launch platform, providing a missile for another aircraft or a ground observer, designating with a laser, to guide the missile to its intended target. A ground designation station such as an FO or Combat Observation Lasing Team (COLT) accomplishes this with lasing devices like the G/VLLD or MULE.
With a remote engagement, the air crew is responsible only for delivering the missile toward the general location of the target, but is no longer responsible for its guidance once it leaves the external launch rails. This allows remote engagements to provide one distinct advantage over autonomous engagements. Using this technique, the launch aircraft is often able to remain masked behind terrain, greatly reducing its visible launch signature while delivering missiles toward the target array, thereby increasing aircraft survivability - a force protection consideration. Remote engagements, however, require a great deal more coordination and plan-ning between the “shooter” and the “observer.”
In addition to the two methods of engagement, there are four modes of delivery that aircrews can utilize when firing the Hellfire missile. These delivery modes are driven by three factors: distance to the target, the weather (primarily visibility and cloud ceiling height), and terrain conditions under which the missile will be fired. When a Hellfire missile flies through obscuration (fog, clouds, smoke) or if the designator fails to lase the target properly until impact, the missile loses laser lock and will be lost for good. Only one model of Hellfire missile, the AGM-114K, has a built-in system to assist in the reacquisition of the target after laser lock-on is lost. The AGM-114L, when fielded, will provide a true fire-and-forget capability.
I've seen the video footage of them using the nose cannon on 3 other IED planters. Turned them into fluid mist.
Someone here ought to recognize the HUD, whichever A/C it is........
