RPG Hits House Full of Soldiers

Sorry not a lot of info here and no translation. From the source: Several French Marines were wounded in an attack in Afghanistan. One French Officer was killed during the operation and seven Taliban fighters were killed. Ten Taliban fighters were also arrested. Skip to the 2:08 mark for the impact which is beleived to be an RPG. What do you think?

    No way that was an RPG. It looks like a bullet went through the window and hit part of the frame, before striking a soldier. RPG warheads are large directed blast weapons that would have killed or wounded several of the people in the room, and the explosion would have left the room filled with smoke and dust.

    Not sure why user 7988494 said it wasn't...but that looks like an RPG strike to me. I've experienced them both in Mogadishu, Somalia in 1993 as well as during deployments for OIF/OEF over the past 10 years. If I was a betting man, I think I'd be taking Mr. 7988494's money...Yeah Boy, Major Medical!

    It might have been a RPG but the explosion was not loud enough. A rpg would have killed more than 1 soldier as well. May the one that got KIA rest in peace though.

    To members 7988494 and TheBandit4, I believe that it was not a rpg but the main subject is the loss of a brother in arms despite what country he was from. Just like US Soldiers they have family as well and the price he paid is no less than what our fallen paid!!!
