    Does mortar training come with complimentary sign language training?

    I don't see a shock wave. I see only the recoil of the mortar plunging the base into the ground and sending up a cloud of dust. Where do I look for the shock wave?

    The shock wave bounced off the ground and lifted the sand. The sand makes the wave visible.

    the spreading ring of dust is the supersonic shock wave.

    watch the thumb nail not the full screen and you'll see the shockwave before the main recoil behind him.
