Ghost Recon Alpha Short Film

A prequel to Ghost Recon Future Soldier:

I had no idea what was going on 99% of the time, but it was very well done.  The video will probably make a lot more sense to you gamers.

Every time I see a quadrocopter I realize how much I need to get one.

Ghost Recon Future Soldier comes out May 22, and can be pre-ordered for 59.99.

Thoughts?

Now, I’ve never played any of the games, but the movie looks pretty interesting.

Thanks Matt. That is actually the same video I posted, but the one Jon emailed me wasn’t off the Ghost Recon youtube channel, and yours was. I updated the link, thanks again.

What is the gun they use ? I especially mean the one with the massive handguard we can see clearly (but really quicky) at 5:26. I guess it might be a prop, but what is the basis of this ?

Good movie, very well done.

Looks kinda like a some bullpup they did a hollywood job on. Magazine looks consistent with a 5.56 or like round, top barrel the same, lower barrel looks like a shotgun, not grenade launcher, too small. Then what is this big metal hook thing on the bottom?

I think they all the gun you’re looking at a TAR 21. I’ve only ever seen airsoft versions, I think it’s a concept weapon. That would follow suit with alot of these video games snatching up concepts as actual field weapons because they’re “so cool!” There is a current percent of young airsofters who would pledge their first born to get a replica of a KRISS Vector because it was in COD or something. No amount of reason or experience can convince them that it isn’t end all weapon out there.

Not a Tavor. Or if it is, it’s heavily disguised.

TAR-21 is just an Israeli Tavor…not a concept weapon, they have used it for at least 10 years if I remember right…

Fantastic film though, just think what they could do with a Hollywood budget…I hope Part II comes soon!

Wow…this is actually better than 99% of the action movies Hollywood is making these days. I would love to see this as a full length movie!

Agreed. This was the best war movie I’ve seen in years.

The production value was phenomenal. The only thing that really bugged me was @11:32, the operator manually cycles the action of the Barrett. Kicked ass regardless.

Oh my god this is awesome.

The quadrotor drone might not be a realistic proposition with current technology, but as motors get more powerful and batteries get smaller, the future is going to be very, very scary :-/

Governments already have few moral qualms using relatively clumsy Hellfires fired from drones and all the collateral damage that implies, imagine if they had access to a more discreet model that could put a couple of 22LR subsonics in the right place…

The video was fantastic.

The question is why not everyone was carrying a long gun. At about the 13:00 minute mark, the techy type guy tosses his M-16 (long gun) to the sniper guy. Why did the sniper need it?

The ‘techy’ guy is the spotter for the sniper – and a G-36 is a lot faster to get the sights on multiple targets at rifle range.
Absolutely outstanding video!
