I think they say that in a lot of countries :P

It's the intention that counts right?

Always wear a seatbelt is the moral of this story But I'm not sure about this, looks kinda weird, and a waste of some pretty good use of their 'invisibility suits' if it's been publicised now...

I don't want to hear any complaints next time somebody posts a video of an Apache blowing up insurgents.

Looking at the vidoe again it seems like the "invisi" guy is one of the 3 we see going right (the limping one) who:
a) might have been in the process of being taken prisoner by the other 2 and then managed to run away thus his sprint&hop onto the 2nd armor.
b) where people from the 1st armor going to check (?) something to the right. Possible firefight and one runs to cover ?
c) MrSpock, Mork & Ford Prefect went on a drunken binge on some lost random planet (happened to be earth) and Ford freaked out & ran when Spock started doing things with his fingers to him

As you can see one of the incoming soldiers come in the front of the picture to talk to the guy who just jumped on.

So anyhow I don't think its an edited video, just a very crappy quality one without a lot of context.

I think this is infact the proof that ACU's work very,very well
Does anybody have an idea how much that explosion hurt the tank itself?

At 1.00 I think you can see someone opening a hatch, and the guys who ran out look ok. So unless the US army has some kind of instant zombiefication process (you never know) I'm assuming that the crewmen got out ok. Pretty funny that they use a video showing how they cannot damage a US tank as a propaganda vid.

1. That probably didnt' do much of shit to the tank or the crew. The only type of IED that will penetrate a tank like that is a EFP. An EFP pointed upwards at that location might, and I highly emphasize MIGHT penetrate the under armor of the tank. However it would not have jarred the tank as it did, as a EFP is designed for penetration and not brute force.

2. I take worse bounces than that in my MRAP. So long as the crew had their cvc or k-pots on, the worse they got was a bad headache and maybe a broken bone from slamming into something. It didn't even cause the track to get thrown.

3. Lulz at the 'invisability' suit part. The entire part was BS if you know anything about tank hatches. The tank that got hit wouldn't have had any of the crew taken prisoners as the hatches were closed. To get them open from the outside would take a knowledge of the abrahms they don't possess.

I researched invisibility suits a few years ago. It is possible but it's deployment is very limited.

BTW video link is not working.
