Holy crap!

"When he got out, a remote-controlled machine gun opened fire from a Nissan stopped about 150 meters (164 yards) from Fakhrizadeh's car, the agency said."

Could that be any more Hollywood?

"Fakhrizadeh was hit at least three times, according to Fars News. His bodyguard was also shot. Following the gunfire, the Nissan exploded, the news agency reported, adding the attack lasted three minutes."

Yes.... yes it could.

Um.
Hi-tech?
Maybe 30 years ago.  A remote operated machine gun is not terribly hi-tech.  Hell, based on the capabilities demonstrated, this could have been Quds or MOI got fed up with his prima donna crap, or suspected him of treason, and wanted it to look like THE J-... Israel.

This would have been quite a trophy for the Iranian internal opposition, too.

Reasonable point about the US approach, tho.

A machine gun is unlikely to make a car explode, especially one weak enough to make impacting rounds seem innocuous, so there was probably a bit more to the attack.  There were likely multiple units involved, a disabling first attack and follow-up finishing attacks with something more powerful.

Based on what? Iran became a part of the Joint Comprehensive plan of action. Seems like other countries, the US included, want to undermine that. So dont be surprised when it blows up, pun intended, in America's or Israel's face.

Shoot up the lead car to stop the caravan.

When his car neared a selected point, a parked explod-y car went BOOM and he was killed.

It's a tried-and-true technique.

I doubt he got out until everything went boom-booms.

NASCAR (and other auto racing) has a general rule: Do not get out of the vehicle unless you are on fire, or the safety team instructs you to do so.

Being a valuable protected person is similar: Do not get out of the armored vehicle unless your security team instructs you to do so.

Im_Gumby: What does bullets hitting a vehicle sound like?


If you've ever been driving down the highway and your car gets hit by a decent sized rock thrown by a truck tire, it sounds kind of like that. You don't necessarily hear the gunfire itself but you will hear the bullet striking the vehicle.

Pro tip: Don't stop and investigate.

thats what it sounded like.
propositioned explosive at a point they were known to pass.  attack the lead vehicle to stop them in position.  detonate the bomb.  second gun in overwatch for cleanup.
assuming the first weapon was on remote like the second... (the bomb obviously was) someone could have been running the whole attack from a laptop over a cell phone from another country.

The car with the machine gun exploded.
They rigged the machine gun and rigged explosives to destroy evidence/tech.
