A video out of Kunar province, Afghanistan, likely recorded around 2010, shows 173rd Airborne paratroopers of Able Company 2-503rd duking it out with Taliban forces deep in the mountains. The soldiers can be seen engaging with light machine guns and what appears to be a shoulder-fired AT-4 rocket launcher as a pair of now-retired Kiowa scout/attack helicopters buzz overhead.
