The Bomb Squad - episode 1

Amazing details on IED clearance procedures, and that within the first 15 minutes. Addictive to watch such pros at work.

The Battle for Marjah

Robotic targets on trial on the firing ranges

Great idea to use moving robots for target practice. Looks quite rudimentary at the moment, as it is a prototype.

Current movement is more like a vehicle, and less like a human, which would normally execute fire and movement.

24th MEU's Alpha Co., BLT 1/2, live-fire urban training

Now this is a complex live-firing environment.

A realistic test of actual combat scenarios, with

  1. multiple teams (danger of fratricide is always just around the corner)
  2. elevation (notice some buildings with a 2nd floor)
  3. support arms (usage of SAW for suppressive fire, usage of training grenades)
