[:K] This thing keeps getting posted, day after day, like it was new. If it is real, it's Chechens attacking a Russian APC. Old. Not new.

Oh well...this is what I got: [b][size=4]ACTUAL FILE FOOTAGE: US ARMY DECEMBER 10, 2001. 07:30[/b][/size] Gives you an idea how close the Army is to the bad guys. Subject: Attack on a Taliban BMP This was just sent to me by a friend on the USS John C. Stennis. He was the strike element lead on this attack, and received these pictures as a "thank you" from the U S Army controllers on the ground. It is an excellent example of a joint, combined arms operation. A Taliban/ al-Qaida armored vehicle (ex-Russian BMP) with troops embarked and riding on top is targeted by forward air controllers (FAC's) of the US Army, 4th Special Operations Group. A flight of two Navy F-14 Tomcats are called in by the Army FAC's and strike the vehicle nearly simultaneously with GBU-16 laser guided bombs. As a bonus, there is a nice secondary explosion in the middle of the road, towards the end of the set. Jerry Burns Project Manager KC-135 ATS 303-783-3261

I've seen this footage before. If I remember corectly it was originally billed as a [i]Russian[/i] APC that was destroyed by Chechen (or Afghan, I can't remember) soldiers when it drove over a buried mine.
