Death by Phosphorous

This weapon is one of the reasons the Arabs are scared to death of the
Israelis. What you are about to watch is an actual event. The Israeli Armed
Forces filmed this in real time. What you'll see is a fully armored Syrian
tank being hit by an Israeli laser-guided, steel-penetrating,
phosphorous-filled "hand held" rocket. The rocket is small, very portable and
is a tightly controlled weapon. Each one is accounted for when they are
checked out and back in. There must be no fewer than 2 soldiers present to
verify the use, one must be a senior officer with a minimum of 10 years
military service. (The name and program is classified)

This tank was headed for one of Israel's settlements. There were four more
tanks one mile to the rear of this tank. They turned around before getting to
this area after learning what had happened to the lead tank.

You can see and hear the ammunition going off after the initial strike.
No Syrian tank crew member survived this event (pretty obvious) and it did not
make the news.

It is an everyday event for Israel's Armed Forces and they do not permit the
"embedding" of news reporters with their armed forces like we Americans do.
This weapon and its tactical use is for their survival, not for "news"
entertainment. Perhaps we should take a page from the Israeli Military
Handbook.

affraid

Holy shit! My company once disposed of a mortar round found in a parking lot outside a Navy base in San Diego, California. I was told it could not be fired under normal conditions due to its age and it was rusted from being buried a long time. Come to find out it was "active" and containing phosphorus. If I would have seen this vid first I doubt I would have messed with it. I did get to see it destroyed, blown up, in Southern Louisiana. That was cool, but not as cool as this vid.

Yep, and they shot 105mm and 155mm phosphorous rounds out of our big guns in Vietnam. A 155mm white phosphorous round would light up a hillside.
