Fallout Re: This is just too good not to share......

I just can't resist this one anymore, I believe the "focus" is too close in, on what everyone is looking at to some degree. Look to the horizon there's the answer you seek, this is the same video. Notice the clouds are the same on the left side of the video. Also what looks to be either a distant mountain or cloud formation center right, they both share the same "horns" at each end. Also don't the turrets look just a little bear of equipment and it also appears the tank commanders are pretty set in their positions (Especially their heads.) without any real perceivable movement as compared the the tanks. I'm not afraid to say that the video might not even be real but, computer generated.

Just some food for thought.

EXACTLY. It's the same exercise in the same place using high and low quality recordings

Fallout Re: This is just too good not to share......

Yeah in my delirium (Really really bad allergy attack and no sleep.) I didn't catch the horizon breaks of the hilltops, so my "clouds/or distant mountain" is clearly a cleared slope with two trails coming in from the upper left and right. I can see this area being used to train ski troops as the slope reminds me of a nordic/cross country ski slopes of my youth.

Regards,
Pat

Once you see it... the mountains in the back (in the HQ video) that are not visible in the low quality one and the trees fooled me quite well. But the areas cut open look way too similar to be a coincidence.

I call it a faked,for these reasons.
Look at the brush or trees beyond the outermost leos,they are passing at the same speed and clarity as the distant formations when they should much more blurry.
Also shouldn't there be much more snow spray "roostertail" behind them?

Depends on the temperature.
If it's cold the snow is "dry" and will create great rostertails, if it's warm the snow is "wet" and thus nada.

Also that's a very light covering of snow/ground frost in the video look at the tracks.

You are all missing an important factor,
Tanks that heavy say 12 tons or more moving at that speed will throw a rooster tail even in light dry snow.
Also the air time shows they are very very light,most likley a fast wheeled vehichle with a fake Leo shell, military propaganda, no new thing, and no dukes of hazzard here

Could be the camera is mounted on another tank in the formation or some other vehicle, and it may be using one of those automatic focusing cameras, causing it to out of focus for a split second. Also it may be why the backround is moving (though I never looked at the background very closly, so I didn't notice if it's moving or not, just replying to observations of another poster).

Aso, the camera might be one of them high tech jobs, that moves up and down like it's foating on air, makes action seens in movies look flawless.
