Troops Hit Insurgent Sniper with AT-4 Rocket

Published Oct. 21, 2021

An insurgent sniper in Iraq finds out the hard way that an 84mm rocket does not feel good when it impacts directly with your position. You gotta love a happy ending.


When troops in contact with a sniper in Iraq figure out the position of the guy harassing them with semi-accurate small arms fire, they respond by busting out an 84mm AT-4 rocket and blasting the guy's position into oblivion.


Unfortunately, we don't have too much context for this video. It appears to be a video that was recorded pretty early on in the conflict. Judging by the camera quality alone, I would date this video between 2004 and 2006. To be honest, it's even difficult to tell if the guys shooting the AT-4 are Marines or Soldiers, because the camera they are filming on is distorting the color a lot. If anyone has any contextual information they can add to this, please leave it down in the comments so I can pin it up to the top.


For me, one of the most important aspects of sharing combat footage is to preserve the historical context of the situation as it unfolded in the moment. It's hard to do that sometimes though for a number of reason. You guys helping us out goes a long way towards helping us move the project forward.
