Combat GoPro: Rapid Fire ATGM in Ukraine

A GoPro donning Anti-Tank Guided Missile (ATGM) gunner fires off six missiles in rapid fashion somewhere in Ukraine. The first-person perspective provides an interesting look at the combat conditions of the stagnated frontlines.

Purportedly occurring in eastern Ukraine near the city of Donetsk, an ATGM gunner of an unidentified faction quickly mans his weapon system and rapidly fires off six projectiles in about three minutes. Co-located in an extensive defensive network with machineguns and an apparent second ATGM launcher nearby, they continue to engage the unseen enemy in the foreground. If the timestamp of the video is to be believed, the incident occurred after the major combat operations of 2014-2015 and during the stabilization of the lines between the Russian Separatists and Ukrainian Military.
