At first I didn't think that was danger close. They walked it in though and it seemed they got them on the last run. That last one was pretty close

I assumed danger close is feeling rocks and shrapnel coming in to my position

Looks like they made it out of at one. Glad to see it


Sent from my IPad so... Ease off the spelling

I don't think it was danger close, looked to be further than 100 meters, hard to tell on video though, except maybe those last two runs.

DocCrazyJ: Danger close is munition, and delivery vehicle, dependent, like danger close for the 105 out of an AC-130 is different than from a ground based howitzer.

rero is correct.

Danger close is a munition-specific distance assigned to a round, missile, rocket, or bomb--Since they all have different characteristics, based on precision, blast, and fragmentation, and of course amount of explosives. This is based on a number published as the "Probability of incapacitation". It can get pretty involved, but the short of it is; With this weapon what is the percentage of troops getting hit at a given distance. That percentage needs to remain below a certain number. For example: a 500lb Laser guided bomb has a DC of ~200m.

Danger close (not PI) for artillery/mortars is 600m - 5/54 Naval guns - 750m

Just some info if your interested.

Look at what these SF guys are rocking I love the quads and the AT4 rockets they have. One of the guys is smoking a cig while throwing a frag.
