Taliban Leader Catches Hellfire Missile With His Stomach

A Persistent Ground Surveillance System blimp catches the moment an Apache drives a Hellfire missile directly into the gut of a Taliban leader.


An IED emplacement team, operating inside of Helmand province, is captured by the nearby PGSS blimp. The Taliban IED team continues about their operation, not knowing that they are being watched, as a nearby Apache waits for the word to drop bodies.

Once the leader is identified, a nearby Apache gunship gets within firing range. He confirms his target, and drives a Helfire missile directly into the Taliban leaders stomach. A few seconds more, and there would have been a small chance that he could have escaped with his life. Probably not though.

Surveillance systems are awesome.
