Invisible to the naked eye, Taliban insurgents have no idea that a giant beam of infrared light is marking their position. An A-10 Warthog comes out of nowhere and rocks them into a quick end.
The infrared beam is most likely originating from the Forward Observer or JTAC’s IZLID (Infrared Zoom Laser Illuminator Designator) made by B.E. Meyers, which emits an ultra bright beam that is used to identify targets for high-altitude aircraft or ground troops with night vision optics.
