Special Forces raid a house with ANA soldiers, only to be ambushed inside the house itself.
A round impacts the ANA soldier’s magazine (seen in the second gif, watch for sparks).
Apparently the ANA soldier who cut and ran was killed outside the compound, but the SF killed the ambushing insurgent and captured at least two others.

They had calculated that the West would deploy a token force and when threatened would duck or run. They knew us better than we knew ourselves.

Chechen Conflict video.
Probably one of the most gruesome wars of the 90s, mostly because the Russian government and military was still in shambles from the fall of the USSR.
The radio talks in the beginning are a dialogue between between a chechen and a Russian officer. The Chechen asks the commander to turn back, to save his soldiers, to bring them back to their mothers. First, the officer says he isn’t that high of an officer to give such orders. When the chechen continues to ask him to turn back, He says, rather calmly, that he has an order, and he will comply to this order.
Fuck me. This is some pretty intense footage, not for the faint of heart.
Is that seriously a knocked out Abrams? How the everloving fuck does that even happen? These are the tanks that eat other lesser tanks. Lesser tanks being anything that isn’t an Abrams.
I think an RPG or a shell or something might have hit the back of the turret and caused the ammunition to explode(assuming that’s where they keep the ammunition). I don’t notice any big gaping holes in either of these two pictures, just one really fucked up vehicle. And the turret’s turned at a weird angle, like they were trying to shoot something firing from the sides?
Although I don’t think an RPG could do diddly squat to an abrams.
