    This is an excellent example of why the Apache is the greatest helicopter on the planet. Those guys didn't even know they were being watched.

    My Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control in Orlando = TADS/PNVS, LongBow Hellfire Radar and HellFire Missiles. We always take pride in our little toys that we manufactured.

    All we need now is some lib to come on here with a cost per KIA complaint, or better yet, the inhumane way those savages were killed.

    This must have been filmed before Jughead's last Rules of Engagement meeting. His newest rule is, "You cannot engage the Tollybohn unless you have been wounded - they could be just out, plinking" ;-)

    If their kin can't find all their body pieces, Muhammed says they can't go to heaven and see their 72 year olf virgins. If you have ever seen some of these muslim women, you'll know why they cover their faces. It takes 32 women to get a full set of teeth.

    Talk about fish in a barrel. LOL. I agree they didn't know what hit them. GOOD JOB TROOPS. Thanks for your hard work.

    I didn't think it was at all disturbing. Good shooting.

    That is some really neat footage. I had the pleasure of doing R&D on NVAS and Flir when I worked for T I in 67. Some really unique stuff. I only wish it had come out earlier. It would have saved a lot of my buddies lives in Nam.

    Blade819, I saw some of your stuff when I ran the communications facilities at Lockheed Space and Missile in Sunnyvale/Moffett Fld. I had a comm center in each of the different facilities and got to see some of the stuff first hand and boy was I amazed. Jackie B.

    Shooting Jack...... my last project was a Air to Surface Cruise Missile named JASSM. Look up the capabilities on that one. Unfortunately they are being use sparingly. It seems that the Drone, which was originally intended to be used for intel only, has turned into quite the platform. Enough Hellfires are being launcehd to start up production again.
