    Wouldn't that be called "danger close" these days?

    I think it was then too but it's acceptable in action as long as you state "Danger close" at the beginning of the call for fire.

    I noticed that, too. Wonder if it is a 97 or a 12.

    It has a long muzzle out front of the shroud, that would be '97?

    In close air support, artillery, mortar, and naval gunfire support fires, it is the term included in the method of engagement segment of a call for the fire which indicates that friendly forces are within close proximity of the target, usually 600 meters however The close proximity distance can be determined by the weapon and munition fired.

    Given the posture of the marines and the size of the detonation, it would appear to me that this is not air support, artillery, mortar, and naval gunfire support fires - more along the lines of a satchel charge type of detention. If they had called in some ordinance I would expect them to be on the ground before detonation
    There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

    In the parlance don't matter much if you're on the business end.
