Video shows helmet cam footage of US Army humvee machine gunner recording the front vehicle of a humvee column being hit by an RPG during an Taliban ambush in Afghanistan.
There is not much background to the footage but when we look at the quality of the recording and the uniforms the soldiers wear this must have been pretty early in the war.
The soldier records his column being ambushed by taliban fighters from several directions. They keep on driving through the attack, responding with ther heavy machine guns until the front vehicle gets hit by an RPG and stops.
We do not see much of the aftermath of the the initial RPG attack but what the footage shows us that the Humvee appears to have taken the damage quite well and also none of the soldiers inside were seriously harmed making this a lucky close call.
