What did they fire that thing out of? Looks like a '57 Chevy.

... It looked to me that the contrail went up and to the right. I'm sure it missed or we wouldn't be seeing it.

Not necessarily, most of the video is fed back in real time. I'm sure we would have heard of it getting shot down though. However, from the video, it is hard to tell what happened.

Looked like that vid first showed the image zoomed in, then.. they backed it out a bit for the final image.. with a miss of course.. :)

Thanks for linking to that! I've never seen anything like that before....watching a SAM being fireed straight at the camera. The missile was wobbling all over the place as the stabilizers adjusted to guide it towards the Predator. That was just too cool.

I wonder how the pukes saw the drone, had to of been radar uh? You could'nt see the truck on the ground in the last part. edited to ad, Pretty frickin cool video!!

... You know, I've looked at this thing a dozen times and I think I know what is going on now. ... Look carefully at the surroundings of the Iraqi truck, after the digital scramble the "pilot" zooms out. Ergo, the contrail is now back in the field of view. ... Gemme the controls to one of them drones, Hell I'll fight them bastards from this cockpit right here!

I wonder how the pukes saw the drone, had to of been radar uh? If it was a Roland missile system then yes. Chassis AMX-30 , Marder APC, trucks, or in fixed shelters. That didn't look like an AMX-30 or a Marder. Here is a photo. [img]http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/land/row/roland2_cat1g.jpg[/img] Look carefully at the surroundings of the Iraqi truck, after the digital scramble the "pilot" zooms out. Ergo, the contrail is now back in the field of view. Yep. And probably the reason why it is so off track is that the Predator is just beyond the thrust time limits of the rocket motor. Without that thrust everytime the missile tries to make a correction it can't recover from it so it overcorrects in the opposite direction. You wanted a Predator? Here is one with two Hellfire-C missiles ready to go! [img]http://www.ga.com/news/phell_445.jpg[/img]

Hey RagHead " NAAA NAAA NAA NUA NUAA NAA, You missed me you missed me " Should have shot one right back at the dumbass. Do you think they were still sitting in or around the weapons platform after they fire the missile or do you think they turned the radar off and hauled ass waiting for the HARM missile to come rain down on their position ?
