    These are the distances where the 7.62 round comes into its own. This heavy weapons team should have at LEAST TWO of the third generation M-14's in its inventory with a tracer round to mark specific targets for the AT-4 and the M240.

    Wouldn't a 50 cal sniper rifle be better suited?

    Why did he turn the camera away just before the AT4 hit in both cases?

    My war was Viet Nam and we expended a huge amount of ammunition for very VC killed or wounded, many thousands of rounds. It seems not much has changed.

    As a US Marine M-60 machine gunner in Vietnam, I would be ashamed to be in that video! Shameful!!

    Afghanistan was made for the M-14, hell they wood do do better with surplus M1 Garands! Thats the price you pay with a one gun meets all mindset. I didn't see anyone with binoculars. Poor show gentlemen, but its not their fault, its Commands responsibility.

    That has to be a reserve unit.

    Wow, i see the NCO was doing his job keeping the fight going, too bad the troops were not. I dont know if this was a failure to train, failure to engage, failure to give a crap or what. I know this video is not a true reflection of our modern troop capabilities, well I would hope to God it is not. Relax the age requirement and I will go back in, and by the looks of the comments I would be joined by many old school troops. I pray for our military's safety and for their families. Thank you guys that are willing to take up our cause and fight.

    The comments related about this video crossed my mind also before I read them.The firefight seemed at an extreme range and rather "discombobulated" for effectivenes.

    50 years ago we were taught a line of fire--These guys look like they are at a turkey shoot. Some one should be held responsible for putting these troops out there so poorly readied for combat. Kudos to the NCO telling the troops to get that gun in action ---truly disgraceful.
