Situation: You have been taken hostage in Russia.

Good: The authorities will come for you. They always do.

Bad: Russians don't have a concept of "rescue", but they do understand "recovery".
 
2011-05-31 12:57:36 PM  
Screw not being the guy with the stick. At least he was outside the bus. The guy I don't want to be is the one driving it as part of a demonstration.

"All right Ivan, you got the short straw. We've got the emergency evac waiting. Now get in there and drive."

I'd rather be left with the hostage takers than rescued by Russian SWAT.

Well, that's all well and good if the hostages are a bus full of pedophiles. Otherwise, that's a little extreme, don't you think?

I'm slightly more amazed that everyone else carried on the exercise. No one thought "Holy f*ck! We blew Ivan up!" and raced to find/help him.

Pop quiz hot shot. You have a bus full of hostages. An entire SWAT team behind you. You are carrying a stick and some C4. What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?!
 
2011-05-31 02:04:26 PM  
Slow motion of bus pnwnage

I'm a bit confused. The blast effect is very large for the size of whatever is on the end of the stick. The blast point doesn't seem to be the end of the stick. It looks more like a larger charge was planted in the back of the bus.

American SWAT bus takedown. Notice any difference?

I'm guessing they don't have liability lawsuits in Russia.

It took me watching it a few times but (i think) you can actually see the asploder get up and run to a position in the right side of the screen.
 
2011-05-31 02:19:26 PM  
I like how there's one guy on the bus, yet when they board there's like 8 million rounds being shot off. At :28 you can see a guy on the left of the bus, faced in the opposite direction, just firing several rounds into the air. I'm pretty sure I saw these guys in Idiocracy.

You know, in one way, this is a damned good strategy for discouraging hostage taking terrorism. And *definitely* a good way of making sure said hostages do everything in their power NOT to comply with the terrorists.
 
2011-05-31 03:02:38 PM  
I think that was just a concussion grenade.... it blew the crap out of the windows but it certainly did not "blow up"

Although im sure if it was in the seat next to you, you would have MASSIVE trauma.

The German stick grenades in WWII were incredibly ineffective for the same reason because they were just explosives, and not fragmenting.
 
2011-05-31 03:05:02 PM  
It's official. I'm more afraid of Russian police than Russian gangsters.
 
2011-05-31 03:07:18 PM  
They're not even trying to save the hostages.

If the bus is in pieces all over the place, that's way too much power to be a distraction device.

I have bad news for you, then. There's not a whole lot of separation between the two.
 
2011-05-31 03:20:08 PM  
If you watch closely, the guy with the stick is below the windows of the bus so the main explosion goes over his head. Hopefully the dude driving had earplugs and goggles.

The stick was only a method of flinging the explosive into the vehicle through the window. He smashes the window with the stick/explosive, which severs the cord and flings the explosive toward the back of the bus, as the trajectory would predict (at least it appears so to me).

I'm thinking the fuse was a little shorter than expected and the charge was a little stronger than expected.

That dude was running like he was aware of those two flaws...
 
2011-05-31 03:35:06 PM  
Senor Spielbergo

Yeah maybe the charge was experimental. I can imagine it coming off the stick and flying into the back, but yeah half second fuse if that.

It was too powerful by about an order of magnitude. "momentarily distract" is all we need. Flash and bang, not "blow limbs from bodies"

2011-05-31 04:00:10 PM  
Ok I see how it works. Explosive on the end of about a 12 inch piece of rope tied to a stick. it has a delay on it so when it hits the window it starts the timer and the explosive by this time detonates inside the bus. It basically is just a big concussion that blows all the windows and doors open so the swat team can enter while everyone inside is knocked out or at least dazed. Which is fine unless you are the person(s) sitting in those seats. However at the beginning of the video we see simulated civilians being escorted to safety so I guess this is done with the bus is empty other than the terrorists. If that is the case I would wonder why they are shooting from an APC which would easily kill the terrorists but also go through the bus and kill everyone in direction of fire.

I guess I'd have to be there to see it in action.

Once a year, Mexicans like to celebrate how impact sensitive their fireworks compositions are by hitting them with hammers. I think it's a national holiday.

Of course, the idea was to just use 1 (one) firecracker, but of course some homeboy has to see how many he can tape together at once, with predictable results.
 
2011-05-31 05:52:58 PM  
Classic Russian SWAT tactic.

If the hostage takers no longer have hostages because you killed them all they no longer have the upper hand.

Brilliant.

The center of the explosion is not tangential to the arc and speed of the tip of the stick.

It was a surprise bomb to keep everyone on their toes during this "planned" exercise.

That's what I'm thinking. It's in the wrong place, the wrong size, and really at the wrong time - it goes of instantly when the stick hits the window. There's no time for the charge to get to where it goes off.

If it was a surprise training element, I'd say it worked.

2011-05-31 10:35:52 PM  
I hate to have to tell you guys this but that video was faked.

The explosives were already inside the bus.
 
2011-05-31 10:48:06 PM  
Are people not watching the entire video?

Not only does it look like the guy runs out of the smoke cloud a few seconds after the blast, the rest of the guys run into the bus and pull three dudes out who were apparently inside when the thing went off.

It looked way worse than it was.

Also worth noting: The APC or tank or whatever on the other side of the bus is shooting directly at the camera position. I'm going to guess this wasn't live-fire, but still...jeebus.

2011-06-01 04:16:38 AM  
Regardless of the origin of the explosion, it certainly didn't look like there was any attempt to save the hostages at all. The APC/AFV firing its cannon into the front of the vehicle along with the lone stick wielder with the flash bang/satchel charge wasn't exactly a plan that would save the hostages if they were being held. Of course between the Moscow Theater and Beslan, Russia doesn't exactly have the reputation for caring much about life as long as the terrorist die.
