backblast. i fired an at-4 with a hmmv slightly behind me. it blew off the side view mirror and i went deaf in my right ear for about a minute. luckily i checked the backblast area before firing it. a lieutenant was about 15 feet behind me watching me prep it for firing. he had no clue about getting out of the way. btw it was a civil affairs officer and not an infantry one.

They're not Canadian. They're wearing ACU's and one of them is wearing the Foliage colored Fleece jacket underneath his IOTV (must be hot, probably sucks ass).

Backblast all the way. Concussion in that confined space is what threw everyone.

Firing angle looked very tight but correct to me. RU Sure that wasn't just backblast? Those were tight quarters with the backblast aimed towards the ground. The AT4 puts out an enormous backblast.

One of our young medics attached to us fired an AT4 from a second story building from a small apartment dwelling. It blew out all the windows in the apartment and almost blew down the front door. He suffered from a concussion as the backblast itself had no way to depressurize.


At any rate, I hope everyone is alright.
