      Grappel Launch looks like Cobh Deepwater berth with Whitgate and Davis in background?

          Also the rifle at 0:21 being firied from the helicopter?
          Looks like a SR-25.
          HK417.Before ye all start.YES they DO have em along with the 416.Specialist roles only.
          "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.

              the vid could have had a bit more footage IMO, and the music could have been better. i do get whats been said about "poser" music. music could have even been excluded i reckon, any song is gona sound worse than a locka rounds going off or a door getting blown through
              I knew a simple soldier boy.....
              Who grinned at life in empty joy,
              Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
              And whistled early with the lark.

              In winter trenches, cowed and glum,
              With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
              He put a bullet through his brain.
              And no one spoke of him again.

              You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
              Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
              Sneak home and pray you'll never know
              The hell where youth and laughter go.

                I was told that before by a mate in the sniper community.Have yet to see it though myself.

                                Considering it was chopped down for OPSEC/PERSEC reasons, I'd imagine it's at the source where the video originated from.
