C-RAM Misses Taliban Indirect Fire; Nearly Hits U.S. Soldiers

Some footage coming from Afghanistan, shows U.S. Soldiers under attack and narrowly being struck by Taliban indirect fire after a C-RAM fails to intercept the incoming round.


The timeframe, whereabouts, and unit shown in the footage is currently unknown. After analyzing the footage a little, you'll notice one solider is in the Army black and yellow PT's, which was not integrated as an official uniform until 2015-2016-ish.


At the beginning of the footage, the C-RAM can be heard intercepting the first incoming round, causing a decently loud explosion. Despite taking one out, a secondary round can be heard flying overhead. Now, the question I have, was the second round a dud? From audio alone, it sounds as if the round impacted either into the HESCO barrier nearby and failed to detonate or possibly landed further off in the distance and also failed to detonate. Regardless, no explosion is heard, making me believe it was a dud.
