fusillade762: The driver claims his life was saved by the car which had been reinforced with an additional metal frameAre civilians going all Road Warrior over there already?
AirForceVet: Looks more like a mortar round than a missile strike.Those with more experience please add your thoughts./Certainly not a cluster bomb.
Grahor: Wow, that's some good road, by Ukrainian standards.Errrr... was a good road...As for the car being reinforced, that's not unusual for the region. I guess, by what I see from the car, that it was Lada Niva - the farking rust bucket on wheels, but the frame is solid and easily reinforced (no danger of harming interior since the thing doesn't have the interior to speak of) and it has hugely powerful engine that practically can't be damaged and sturdy shock absorbers, which make it very popular anywhere where there are no roads to speak of. In other words, perfect for Ukraine or Russia.
cgraves67: AirForceVet: Looks more like a mortar round than a missile strike.Those with more experience please add your thoughts./Certainly not a cluster bomb.I think it was an artillery shell. It looks like it penetrated the ground just to the side and went under the edge of the road before exploding. It looked like the angle was too shallow and it penetrated too deep to be a mortar, but that's my amateur guess as well.
BigNumber12: The CIA has a lot to answer for.
Grahor: it has hugely powerful engine
Fish in a Barrel: 80 bhp. Still, Fifth Gear (whatever the hell that is) liked it a lot.
Inflatable Rhetoric: The articles says mortar.
alphamnemonic: That was clearly an AK-47.
Tobin_Lam: alphamnemonic: That was clearly an AK-47.Are you sure? I thought it wasn't big enough. I bet it was a Glock.
Diocletian's Last Cabbage: "Well, they don't come any closher than that!"[img.fark.net image 360x153]/couldn't find a still with the dialogue//(hangs head, penis in shame)
danno_to_infinity: cruising around in a war zone? What part of stay the fark home, hide behind the biggest rock, thickest mason walls is a little incomprehensible to this guy?
