M1A1 Route TACO video

Video of tank section rolling out westbound on Route TACO to Balad ruz A/1/278th RCT. The left is the brick factory it can be seen on the blog post of Google Sattelite image, no scale but if you look at the little black blobs zooming in they are Kilns and smokestacks, 75-200 feet high. It is massive, the Jisr-naft village is 24-30 kilometers from Balad ruz, named ruz on the image. The factory itself was at least 12 kilometers long and 2-5 wide depending on where you were, then the debris fields of brick bats made it even bigger.
