In what looks to be a throwback American psy op from Vietnam, Project Eldest Son appears on a Middle Eastern battlefield. A member of an unnamed terror organization (probably the Islamic State or the Taliban from the dress the fighter is wearing) fires a sabotaged rocket propelled grenade. The round detonates inside of the tube, and causes the terrorist’s face to splatter like a ruptured pumpkin.
Project Eldest Son was a military psy op conducted by the Studies and Observation Group (SOG) during the Vietnam war. Caches of sabotaged ammunition were placed in and around battlefields that would be frequently used by communist combat forces in southeast Asia. In total the United States technicians assembled 11,565 7.62×39mm cartridges for AK-47 rifles, 556 12.7×108mm heavy machine gun cartridges, and 1,968 82mm Type 67 mortar shells to detonate in the weapon when firing was attempted.
This operation was also carried out in Camodia, and Laos. Now it appears that we are seeing it in the Middle East as well.
