Troops Lasso Target with IR Laser in Baqubah

Published Aug. 25, 2021

U.S. Troops on patrol in Baqubah, Iraq utilize an infrared laser device to lasso an airstrike directly on top of insurgent positions.


If you're unfamiliar with the term lasso, you're seeing it first hand in this video. Lassoing a target with a laser requires the person to make a small circle with their laser indicator device. From the sky, this gives the pilot a clear picture of which end of the laser is friendly, and which end of the laser is meant to be the target. The skinny end of the rope indicates friendly, where-as the larger end of the rope indicates enemy targets. Instead of a rope however, it's a laser indicating device, like a PEQ-2, PEQ-15, or PEQ-16.


We're not entirely sure which unit was responsible for this specific video. If you were present for this airstrike please let us know the full story down in the comments. As of right now, the only information that is readily available is that this is an American unit on patrol in Baqubah, Iraq, sometime in 2007.
