How did they get that terrorist video? Damn! The Arabs were just chanting God is great when he fell. Those suck motherfuckers should die for trying to kill in God's name. Fucking terrorists. Sometimes I wish I could join up and get a few hundred kills in. :clap

I actually saw a video on this a while ago. What happened is these 2 soldiers were just watching an area in bagdad when they came under sniper fire. Sniper let off a shot which hit this guy in the breastplate giving him a pretty decent bruise. The 2 soldiers searched the area and were able to wound the sniper, while his sniper team fled ditching the video at the scene. The soldier provided medical aid for the guy that shot him before tending to himself...

There was a vid on iFilms interviewing the soldier... I'll try to find it tomorrow.

~Peace

Forgot to look today. I can't remember if he got the rifle. I think that he treated they guy and got brought back for medical attention because he had a huge bruise on his chest. His CO walks up and says "Hey, you want to see yourself get shot?" And tells them that they recovered the video... pretty messed up

The rifle must be pretty weak...not saying that it's a good thing if he would've died.

I don't even think a standard US Army armor can't even withstand 5.62mm
It was the SVD sniper rifle chambered in the 7.62x54MM. The soldier was hit on his SAPI plate which is rated to stop those rounds.

I'm pretty sure he did. Saw this video numerous times at basic.

That vid was also shown on CNN & FOX just recently also actually. Yeah good thing that soldier was wearing kevlar vest. Kevlar vest will save your ass but not at very close range or by neither by a IED also.

Thank God for the ballistic plate. :tu

I don't know if that weapon/ammo combo is supposed to be CRISAT defeatable or not, but that had to have been a shocking experience for that poor guy. :( Glad he seemed to be OK.
