Anti-Junta Fighters Hurl Dynamite with Home-made Artillery Slingshot

This footage shows anti-Junta fighters in Myanmar loading and firing a home-made slingshot-ballista piece, reminiscent of the field-expedient artillery soldiers came up with in the trenches during the First World War. Although it is unclear at whom they are firing (a staple of Myanmar combat footage), they're certainly having a good time with it. "Dude, check this out" transcends nationality or politics.
