DAMN!! at .22 seconds when they start to have small arm hit the turret you can see the Talaban firing points just keep your eyes just to the left of the SAW amazing video and good fire discipline on the enemy's part (ie not just ripping of 30 rounds screaming about a buffet or snack bar)

Amazing how videos get passed around. That was my MATV. Yes the gunner was alright. This was last year in Qalat, Afghanistan.

Wow.. Pucker factor would have eaten my drawers in that experience.

Surviving not one, but two direct RPG hits and then realize your still alive, but your ass is on fire and all you need is a canteen of water and everything will be alright.. that's all.

God was shinning on you my friend. I hope he took some vid footage or photo's of the outside damage. That was fucking amazing.

Rock on brother. Glad everyone made it through that shit storm.

(description from youtube) A Chemical surface to surface missile launching from Mazzeh military airport. This missile hit Eastern Ghouta (Eastern Damascus) and was fired at 6:00AM - on the day of the chemical attack. If you look closely you can see the chemical warhead housing attached to the rocket.
