RSF Fighters Make Massive Technical Target - Miraculously Don't Die

Members of the Rapid Support Force establish a street-side fighting position with several technical vehicles and then begin optimistically engaging fighter jets flying in excess of 1,100 miles per hour. Some how, they don't end up getting turned into people paste by the fighter jet they're engaging.


This video is both simultaneously a win and a fail at the same time. The win for these guys is that the MiG pilot didn't spot them and circle back to remove them from the battlefield forever. The fail is in the fact that they really thought they were doing something with their truck mounted ZU-23 anti-aircraft weapons.


The Zu-23 entered service in 1960. It was made to engage low and slow flying aircraft, not MiG fighter jets. To say that engaging any MiG after the MiG-21 with one of these is optimistic would be an understatement. Even in the case of the MiG-21, these guys would likely not be scoring hits on the aircraft.


For context, this video was filmed in the capital city of Sudan, Khartoum, over the past week during the recent fighting that has broken out there.
