A collection of videos taken by drone as they track Islamic State, Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Devices or VBIED’s. Or in other words, an armoured vehicle absolutely rammed with explosives with a suicide jihadi degenerate at the wheel driving at you as fast as he can. VBIED’s have been the hallmark of the terrorists tactics in both Syria and Iraq, they would often be used to spear head an attack, once the vehicle hits its target a ground assault would rapidly follow to take advantage of the weakened opposition in the chaos and carnage. It seems in this video as if they are also used to take out isolated armoured targets.
