Anti-Junta PDF Attacks Myanmar Army Camp, 10/23

This GoPro-style footage depicts members of an Anti-Junta People's Defense Force (PDF) engaging what is described as a temporary camp of the Myanmar Army. The PDF members' faces have been obfuscated to protect their identity and prevent reprisals.


All the hallmarks of a typical recorded PDF attack are present in this video, including the usual mix of AR and AK platforms. The PDF troops hug a perimeter wall and fire over it en masse. At 0:56, the cameraman gets stuck in, firing an AK over the barrier. At 01:05, his barrel is smoking inordinately, suggesting a lot of buildup in the weapon, or perhaps the barrel's cover is melting. At 01:45, we see more Go-Pro footage from the perspective of a PDF armed with an AR-style rifle; it is unclear whether it is the same cameraman.
