    Hell, we had a similar short range AD system in the late 70s and early 80s. It was a Vulcan 20mm mounted on a track with radar.

    Well, there has been nothing in the news that we intercepted any of the Iranian missiles. That, and the smoke trails and impact fires look to be CGI. I think it was intentionally uploaded in low quality so it would be harder to tell that it's a simulation of some sort.

    Yep, you're right. Watch the smoke plume at 0:35 disappear, plus some of the wreckage is exhibiting non ballistic motion.

    Not that I disagree but what are you seeing that makes you think that?

    It looks a little "off" to me too but I'm not ex-military so I wouldn't know.

    ETA - explosion off to the right at around 2:13 is the dead givaway.

    Because the dang computer stuff has gotten so good. It's hard, or impossible in some cases, for an average person to tell reality and well produced fake videos. Just look at how well they faked the whole Apollo thing and landing on the moon thing. So people still think that is real.

    It looks very familiar, like I've seen it before the Iranian missile attacks. And note on Youtube that comments are disabled.

    EDIT:
    The Iranian regime fired 16 ballistic missiles into Iraq on Jan. 8 at bases housing American troops. With no ballistic missile interceptors in range, U.S. forces could only watch and wait for impact.

    That’s what the Phalanx, which is shown in the CGI video, uses. M61 Vulcan 20mm Canon
