British Troops Ambushed Crossing Danger Area

first published on September 10, 2015 by

Just days from the end of their deployment, British 2 Mercian H15 “Pioneers” troops are on a dismounted patrol.

A light machine gun team gets to an overwatch position to cover friendly elements as they cross an open danger area. The unit walks into an enemy ambush, and after giving covering fire, the machine gun team becomes separated from the larger element. They use the defilade of an irrigation ditch to rejoin with the larger force.

Most of the combat action occurs in the first five minutes of the video, and the rest of the clip is huffing and puffing, perfectly demonstrating how bad Afghanistan sucks.
