It's a dullwitted affair when videogame footage is being supplied to us as proof of wrongdoing by a dictator. How, and why should we believe anything?
    After a small amount of googling, there are claims that other footage in the doc are false too, such as a clip supposedly from the troubles during the 80s showing 90s era Snatch Landies.

    There is actual footage of the incident on youtube:

    IRA Shootdown UK Army Lynx, Silverbridge, South Armagh.
    They used a battery of DSHKs and other MG's in an agricultural trailer.

    I wonder if some researcher was told to get the video and edit it and picked the wrong one?

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, ITV? I hope BIS will sue them for millions of billions :P. Lazy-ass mother****ers. This is unbelievably funny and troubling at the same time.

    Here's some news coverage, I hope other medias will pick it up too and not just the gaming media. http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/09/27/it...cret-ira-film/

    It's hard to imagine them not being able to tell the difference between a game and reality, man that reporter must be blind.

    That would seem a plausible explanation. Still very embarrassing for ITV.

    Yeah, it's starting to look like they just picked the wrong one, probably not imagining that someone would recreate it in a video game. Still sloppy though.

    Wow that's quite low of ITV to use Arma2 like that.

    I've posted the links from the OP on my FB account, there's a few media types on my friends list so hopefully it'll make it's way onto some mainstream uk news.

    It could turn out to be a nice bit of advertising for BIS.

    They might as well use this real life footage to make a documentary about battle-bus in Afghanistan.
    People must know!

    Kind regards,
