what i can never understand is when something like this goes off you can bet theres a camerman for the terrorists filming somewhere id look for him and shoot the fucker but they never do
A wise man once said " "
thats what happens when an IED is buried a bit too deep - properly deployed and triggered at the right time that first vehicle would have been airborne like a champagne cork and coming apart like a clowns car in a circus
just another reason the armed forces arent paid enough or supported well enough when they get injured or leave the forces
errrrrrrr that came from the sky if you look close not the ground
I dont think so m8, unless you and me are looking at different things
why dont the army get a remote control jeep filled with dummies to drive along first so they know what they are in for.
failing that, build a wall around the country and get out
at the very start of the video you can see a black (blob) in the view, to me it looks like its on the windshield and in frame as the truck goes over a bump in the road. what looks like something coming in from the right as suggested could possibly be the same (blob)... if you look at the roadside just before the explosion you can see something on the side of the road right were the explosion happens.
My cousin is a mechanic out in afganistan and i have heard that they often mark the location of buried IED's with bits of rubbish,roadkill etc..because as Detector said they often film these attacks and they use the roadkill etc to line up the camera from a distance.
my eyes are shite I cant see anything lol saying that I have noticed something black flying up just as the bomb goes off which looks to be shooting up from the road surface rather than falling down from above
either way, it makes me look a total knob for getting the arse yesterday because someone used up all the coffee at work and didnt replace it
yup you guys are right had bear googles on when watching first time
looked like a meteor/mortar strike to me it first lol
Good reactions from the driver to avoid it! Fucking hero's all of the guys out there!
We all make mistakes sometimes
to be honest these fuckin ****** are ameteurs at it, you should have sen the boys down the bogside and the creggan back in the day, now them fuckers new how to inflict pain! Like NorthernBloke said that was either too deep (Most likely) or was incorrectly set up to direct the explosion. It actually looked like a mine to me that had been re-deployed under the tarmac. Thick fuckers probably set it updide down.

Mmmmm 1980's Northern Ireland - great place to learn reactive driving skills .
Mind as the scum who planted it were probably trained by guys who were trained by some of the NI Paramilitaries I guess you could call that The Paddy Factor - as long as they keep fucking up deploying and triggering them I'll be happy and more of our boys will avoid death/injury

Can we keep the possibly racist terminology out of the thread guys please!!
"Where you are is what you eat. When I'm in London I'll have beans on toast for lunch. On holiday — what? Tapas? Go on then I'll have a bit. You eat whatevers in that area"
From the ground or air, that was awesome.
