Turkish Gun Truck Surprised By Incoming ATGM

A Turkish soldier records the screen of his Cobra armored gun truck's remote weapon system as they fire on Kurdish militant positions in a Syrian village. Suddenly, a plume of smoke can be seen on the thermal imager, and initially they believe their burst of gunfire detonated some sort of enemy ammunition cache.


However, they quickly realize that the plume of smoke was from an enemy anti tank guided missile (ATGM) station and there is a high explosive munition inbound to their location. They panic and the driver tries to relocate the truck, but the munition strikes.


Based on the audio, the strike didn't inflict any casualties or catastrophic damage to the Turkish vehicle.
