Video: Laser-Guided Kornet Rocket in Action (Used against Israeli school bus)
INN ^ | 4/13/11 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

A video of the laser-guided Kornet anti-tank rocket belies Hamas claims it did not know a school bus was targeted in last week’s attack that critically wounded Daniel Viflic, still hanging on to life.

The Kornet is manufactured in Russia and reached Hamas terrorists in Gaza via Iran or Syria. Damascus was clearly marked as the destination of the advanced rockets that Hizbullah employed in the Second Lebanon War.

The weapon gave Hizbullah a strategic and psychological advantage. Israeli intelligence, severely hampered since Defense Minister Ehud Barak ordered a hasty withdrawal from the “security region” in southern Lebanon in 2000, was surprised at the presence of the rocket in Lebanon.

Israel should now go back to using cluster bombs.

The game has changed.

Fortunately, it’s a poor anti-personnel weapon compared to alternatives. Plus, the Kornet’s laser can be traced by sats and fighters and ground intel. Heck, you could write an iPhone or Droid phone ap that could see the infrared laser and send GPS coords to Mossad before the slow-moving Kornet reached most targets.

These are older model Kornets. The newer and higher end ones are still in Russia.

“Disgusting sub-human filth. I hope they are found and exterminated like roaches.”

I agree we need to get rid of all liberals.

Very pretty.

Drop one of those on a Hamas rally. The terrorism will stop the very next day.

These missile a very, very easy to defeat.

Just walk a wall of artillery rounds through the area you want your tanks to take over.

This method was P E R F E C T E D in WWII and shown to work flawlessly:)

It's relatively cheap too.
