This is really incredible footage from a British unit that is pinned down during an ambush in Afghanistan. At about 2 minutes into it the machine gunner in the top right corner gets hit with a ricochet or a spent bullet. Pretty dramatic stuff. The helmetcam makes it seem like you are really there.

Having been there, I respectfully disagree.

But cool video anyway

dang

The helmet cam guy is carrying a British Army SA-80 and I think the guy who gets hit has a GPMG

It helps the average person who has not served get a idea of what is going on over there.

Wow, certainly makes you pause to say a prayer and silent thank you.
