Panjwai IED blast on a Stryker ICV POV helmet cam
Aftermath of a big damn IED in Afghanistan. Taken in 2012. No life threatening injuries, but it was a close thing. The IED launched the truck into a wheelie, and the force of the front hitting the ground again turned on the helmet cam. It wasn't noticed until hours later that right red light was on.
"quote from the soldier" this video is actually a compilation of several firefights that took place in afghanistan which were edited all together to look like one single event since many events were never able to be filmed (for obvious reasons). We managed to film a short clip of the footage before we had to get back into the action. A few months later, one of our guys saw that the taliban uploaded their point of view of it on liveleak, so we downloaded it and were able to combine both perspectives. this all happened between 2004-2005.
