Some edited footage from an artillery exercise, including a drone camera near the impact area.

Cool to see the AMOS in work.  I wish someone would do a kit of it in 1/35.

Stumbled across this interesting photo....not the fact that this LAV-25A2 had been airdropped, but the realisation that the US Army has taken on USMC LAV-25A2 because of a shortfall in in the 82nd's capabilities  :-\

Can't but reflect on the irony of this, seeing that the US Army had ordered 680 x M1047ís (Army derivative of the LAV-25), but elected to leave the program in 1944, handing over its order to the USMC! The fact that the 82nd could have had this sensible capability 35-years ago.....:icon_crap:

Err, what was that year again?  I might believe 1984 but 1944 seems a tad unlikely.

I used to see views like that when I was at YYC fairly often, it's the shadow of the sunlight playing on the clouds around it.
