A TOW Missile is a dangerous thing, especially for a group infantrymen who have decided to present themselves as a target of opportunity. Out of the ten SAA soldiers in this video, only one survives, meanwhile his nine friends completely disappear.
Currently the CIA is providing TOW missiles to the FSA. There is a strict requirement on every missile fired. Those requirements include recording the shot, and submitting it to the CIA. As well as returning each expended shell to the location of issue for logging by CIA operatives.
In the past we have logged many of these TOW shots here on Funker530. The amount that we have logged, is only a small fraction of the shots available, and that is for good reason. The FSA has been firing TOWs at anything that moves since the issuance of the weapon system began.
In this instance, I believe the TOW missile team made the right decision. A serious target of opportunity presented itself, and while a machine gun could have done the work for a tenth of the price, this tactic avoided a drawn out gunfight with any survivors.
