    this is amazing.....
    Read this first so that you know what they are doing

    You'll have to watch this... it's unreal, 2.5 miles away, at night and it
    looks like they are right there. Heck of a weapon .?

    The pictures were taken from an AC130 Specter helicopter gunship two and a
    half miles away. The guys in the picture are setting up a roadside bomb and
    planning to ambush an American convoy which followed a short while after the
    pictures were taken. They were setting up for the ambush and were pacing off
    the distance from the bomb to where the convoy was to pass by.

    Turn your sound up. The level of effort these crews put forth to control the
    enemy's antics is commendable, and their marksmanship with those
    electronically controlled 40mm cannons is astounding.

    Same here. If it was an AC-130, wouldn't they have been circling it? Entertaining either way; there's many other good videos like this out there.
