Spray and Pray Fail: Truck Bomb Penetrates Security Perimeter

first published on April 27, 2017 by

It doesn’t matter how well-armed or how much ammunition you have if you can’t put rounds on target. A frantic video shows an ISIS truck bomb speeding toward the cameraman’s position on a fortified perimeter. The unit uses the spray and pray technique, meaning they dump as much ammunition down range as possible without actually taking the fraction of a second to line up a decent shot. Within seconds, the SVBIED is approaching its blast kill radius and panic-stricken troops scatter in disarray.

The attacking vehicle soon comes to a stop, and if you watch closely, you can see one of the ISIS members standing behind it, a split second before it detonates into a massive fireball. The attack itself seems to have limited effect, but does well to point out the incompetency and lack of discipline within the defending unit.
