    Naw, forget the aircraft. Out of all the stuff on here this sounds the best for mock combat recordings. Congrats for recording this. I think people are only complaining about the aircraft sound because they wanted machine gun fire, as is in the tags.

    Thanks. This is really cool for mil situational stuff.

    Good job with the sound. And again, thx for sharing.

    Don't get shot.

    Thanks for the comments.In a 2 hour exercise around 1hour 55 mins was spent in near total silence as the soldiers took up positions wearing night-vision goggles.A flare went up and it was all over in a few minutes.

    This is definitly a mint capture. It is a tad bit sad with the aircraft spoiling so much of it. So if you have a longer version then please upload it too.
