In the video you are about to watch, which was recorded somewhere in Syria between 2015 and 2017, a technical vehicle from the Islamic State sets up shop to suppress members of an opposing faction. The technical crew sets up shop utilizing a nearby building in an attempt to mask their position, and begins firing off rounds in the direction of their enemy. What they aren’t prepared for however, is the swift and immediate response of a skilled RPG gunner from the opposing faction.
Within seconds of beginning their suppression based mission, an incoming RPG slams into the side of the Islamic State vehicle. This causes a funny little thing known as sympathetic detonation to occur inside of the vehicle. Everything combustible in the technical instantly ignites resulting in a massive explosion that kills the gunner, and sets the vehicle on fire. It appears as if the driver of the vehicle manages to escape the carnage, regardless of this fact however it easy to say that this was in fact a catastrophic kill against the vehicle.
