What kind of weapon is being fired in the early par of the video? Is it some sort of grenade launcher?

 

It looked like they went to the smoke marker, maybe for air support?

 

Trying to outrun the locals while wearing helmets and armor seems like it would have a low probability of success. Maybe they were trying to reach friendly troops? Could they just lie on the floor of the car and hit the gas and hope not to hit a tree?

I think they were trying to reach the bushes to have cover, as they were on open place while not able to see attackers (who were, i think, very limited in number but because of this advantage just shoot operatives one by one). They were unable to drop armor quickly as it is integrated with communication equipment and ammunition bags - it will leave them without communications and weapons.

Yes seems like they were able to speed out of ambush on early stage, but seems like initially enemy fire was not worrying them too much (probably only one man shooting at them) and only then all ISIS group came.

One of Rus experts take out of this video (in Rus). General idea - the only mistake of Americans was getting into this situation. All their actions during engagement were correct, professional and brave, but outcome was predefined. And it was not ambush but engagement that went wrong after locals flee and left USians alone against enemy
