What do you think this US Marines Engage In Battle With The Taliban – Afghanistan War | Combat Footage video?
US Marines from Echo Company of the 2nd Battalion 9th Marines, based in north east Marjah in Helmand province, came into contact with Taliban fighters. This video clip filmed on the morning of the 28th September 2010 is a real time, multi-camera view of one such fire-fight where elements of 1st Platoon are ambushed by Taliban fighters in the eastern sector of their area of operations.
With Afghan National Army elements in support firing Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs) and M-16 assault rifles, elements of Echo Company maneuvered on the suspected firing positions of the Taliban insurgents.
All that remained as evidence of the firefight were AK47 shell casings and the impacts of rockets fired by the US helicopters. After conducting a bomb damage assessment of the area, the Marines eventually returned to base. With no casualties on their side, the Marines considered this a good day’s work.
