So here was the deal: You had to be quick to catch this but next to the guy with the AK firing blanks was a guy with a paintball gun. For "realism", I use that liberally, they have the blank firing guns. Then to show where the hits would be they have someone with a paintball gun next to them. If you noted the guy with the paintball gun put around 10 rounds on the front windscreen in a small group on the driver. I don't think that "glass" is going to take 10 well placed armor piercing rounds in a small group like that, so for that exercise we saw, I would put money on a dead driver.
