Dog Hears ATGM Way Before the Target Does

Published Sept. 14, 2021

Footage recorded on the Kurdish front-line of Jebha Al-Akrad in the countryside of al-Bab shows Kurdish militants hitting alleged Turkish mercenaries with an ATGM. The dog survives the attack.


ATGM strikes are incredibly difficult to predict. Most ATGM missiles travel just under the the speed of sound, so if you are the target, chances are you won't be hearing the missile until it's too late for you to get out of the way. This video however is interesting, and possibly shows a new counter-ATGM system that could be implemented by first-world militaries to help troops avoid these kinds of attacks.


Take special notice of the good boy on the bottom right hand of the video. He walks into frame pretty quickly, and seems to be minding his own business. As the missile approaches, he manages to hear it early on and gets the heck out of dodge. A trained soldier paying attention to his working dog could use a dog trained to react to incoming ATGM fire as a way to alert others and avoid being blown up, at least in theory.


I don't know enough about working dogs to know if this would be a viable tactic. I do however know that we have a lot of military working dog handlers here in the Funker530 community, so let us know down in the comments if you think something like this would be possible.
