It's his most ambitious NYC installation yet, spanning the side of a sedan and box truck.

The latest Banksy features a man in the crosshairs peering up at three galloping horses in night-vision goggles. Pretty badass.

An audio component was uploaded to Banksy's website to go with the piece. It's ripped from the notorious "Collateral Murder" audio leaked by Chelsea Manning to WikiLeaks, which features the sounds of U.S. soldiers firing on Reuters journalists.
