AH-64 Destroys Taliban Hiding Over Ridge - Clear Footage It says its from our site but i went back 10 pages and did a search and could not find it
From the video owner: Kapisa Province. AC-130 flying support can be heard firing on Taliban positions at 1:22. The Taliban had taken cover in a house and the surrounding woodline approximately 300 meters away. The house was being engaged by multiple .50 cal and a Mk19. A bit overkill which is why i said holy shit haha. At the beginning i as firing on the house in the tree line. At the end i shot at what i determined to be a muzzle flash.
