What appears to be a sub-sonic finned missile is fired in the general direction of a camera. Everything else is up for debate.
This video has been making the round online with some folks claiming this video was taken by a terrorist is Syria, others claim it is a piece of Russia propaganda or test footage, and conspiracy theorists claim it is completely fake since the round is traveling too slowly to be real.
While some folks scream “CGI!” others rationalize that a sub-sonic projectile could be easily seen and that a telephoto lens with high zoom would make the distance between tank and camera much father than it seems.
Either way, a tank turn and fired something directly at a camera. The resulting footage is still badass regardless of whether or not this happened in actual combat.
