Rapid share download.



The 5 man BW crew that was assinged tto CPA Najaf were coming under heavy small arms and mortor fire, the city was being taken over by insurgents. The Police stations and hospitals were taken by as well, after a day of fighting off hundreds of insurgents the city had been completly overran, with the CPA in the heart of the city and no way out.

the Team called up to Baghdad and reported the situation. they said they needed immediate extract which Gen Sanchez also denined due to the fact the city had been overran and they were no US troops there, only contractors. Well Ambassador Bremer was pissed at sanchez and I remember being on office watch during the massive arguments! ambassador bremer and our Baghdad TM Leader got together and Bremer said "I dont want another Bridge hanging! Get those boys out of there by any means nessassary!" so 12 of us 6pilots and 6 gunners loaded as much as we could in 3 MD530 little birds and headed 70 miles south. we flew in the first day and blind (no comms, and no intel on the heat) to try a resupply, land find out was was going on and then head back, rearm and get ready to go again. Well that night all hell broke lose and we flew back in. Over 1000 insurgents (reported by the F18 pilots) had taken the city and now wanted the CPA after a day of intense fighting by 11 BW guys, airstrikes, a handfull of Marines and 1 sniper we were able to hold them off. After it DIED down and gunships and SF guys finnally started to roll in the battle was soon over and we the CPA was saved.
That pretty much it in a nut shell...

The pics are good. The guy with the "sniper" set up has his mags ready to burn through.

I saw that video last year, it is remarkable the calm that is kept by the shooter and the amount of rounds he expends in a very controlled manner in a short time although it appears he has trouble with one reload. I have been told that the shooter at the time thought he was missing his targets who were out to 600m although his spotter is confirming the hits. I forget the exact # but the end result was a great many virgins were given away that day.

Isn't that vid already on the "Blackwater fight on rooftop" thread?

Hosted on Bit Torrent, but I think many here that can't get BT to work are waiting for a direct download link.

I keep telling you people (and my soldiers) ear plugs have a place in combat (not all the time, though)

No this is a new vid. I have seen the one you are talking about. It was in Najaf too I think. That video also had Marines on the roof top.

Check page 10 of the "Blackwater rooftop" thread, there is a bit torrent link to a vid that looks very similar.
