Anti-Junta Forces Conduct Drive-By, Myaing, Myanmar

This PDF (People’s Defense Force) footage from Myanmar depicts anti-junta forces conducting a drive-by style attack on government troops in Myaing Township. Although not depicted, one soldier was reported killed by the attackers.


Using a similar tactic to the anti-junta “monks” in this video, these fighters from the local PDF unit appear to be firing from the bed of a truck or car, which has been sandbagged with concrete sacks for additional protection. The usual eclectic mix of AR and AK platforms are depicted, as well as what appears to be a domestically-built G3 on the right. The home production of anti-junta small arms continues to thrive, and has advanced significantly from the slam-bang shotguns of earlier this year. There are at least four shooters in the vehicle, plus the cameraman.


One soldier was reported killed, though this is unverified. Still, as with most guerilla attacks, the value lies more in the psychological effects than the casualties.
