Dear Bill,

Below is a very good video of the HIND and HIP in action recently in Chechnya. The rockets are 80mm type that the Russians developed when they found out that they could not hit the broad side of a barn with the 57mm rockets. According to most reports it is very accurate. Hopefully Zanin will give a brief translation of the radio traffic.
