Thermal Apache gun cam footage from Afghanistan starts with a Taliban “squirter” attempting to flee from a lost battle. Likely the only survivor, the gunship crew comes in for the cleanup.
The attack chopper’s gunner fires a few bursts and makes aim point adjustments for accuracy. At one point it appears the insurgent takes a direct hit, but he springs forth, running and appearing to be unharmed. His luck was only momentary as the next burst connects with a direct hit, and his lifeless torso flops to the ground.
