Nice, now on youtube as well. Hard to tell; is the vehicles cookoff delayed, or was it hit with a 2nd AT weapon?

It was hit multiple times after the inital hit, nothing much to cook off when you hit the BTR  , maybe if you just manage to hit the ammo box

It looked as if the first hit was to the engine compartment.
Im am not sure if multiple hits can be seen on the footage. To me it seems more like secondary explosions. Maybe the engine tearing itself appart or the ammo boxes on the roof got ignited. All explosions seem to originate from the rear roof of the vehicle or the engine deck.

And another strange case of an AFV alone near a forrest. Where are the dismounts? Why is the APC strolling around in the kill zone of LAWs?

Maybe the dismounts were in the woods the AFV retreated to? I could see the end guy of a company told to hold this area down while we sweep the rest of the woods. Only the opposition wasn't where command thought it was.

In the video, there’s a lot of FA fire right after the vehicle is struck; possibly engaging the dismounts or dis trying to suppress the AT team?

I know. But the wheeeled version is called HiMARS and since anything that launches multiple ballistic rockets in this conflict is called an MLRS, down to katyushas, I thought I'd try and be a bit more precise :o)
