Anyone for a glass of homemade explosives?
Posted in: Modeling

The "Water Container IED" is a big favourite among the Taliban and other insurgent groups, as its made from the exceedingly common plastic water container, stuffed with homemade explosives and triggered by a very simple wooden pressure plate, which when stepped or driven on snaps, completing the circuit between the two contacts on the top and bottom of the plate, causing the device to explode. Not only is it a very simple design made out of common materials, but due to it having hardly any metal components its incredibly hard for metal detectors to pick up when buried in a road.

Ingame this is buried under a small pile of disturbed dirt and is a "Victim-operated" Anti-Personal and Anti-Vehicle IED which means its triggered by both soldiers (from both teams) and vehicles when they walk or drive over them. But unlike some of our other IEDs, it isn't very powerful and will only be able to destroy light vehicles like HMMWVs etc and will cause a significant amount of damage to APCs, but it wont destroy them unless they have already taken damage from something else.



It should also be noted that a few other IEDs will be buried with this small pile of disturbed dirt although it was originally for the Water Container IED

On top of this Chuc has also made a little pile of stones which insurgents use to mark locations they have set their IEDs so they know when to detonate their IEDs as well as help warn the locals that there are IEDs "past this point" which you can use ingame in the same way if you wish

Thanks for reading and we hope you like these new tools of the trade

    So you're gonna place that gallon on the ground, and then you're gonna place the wooden plank (detonator) so when the dude drives over the plank the gallon explodes...?

    Not quite. First a hole is dug, then in goes the water container filled with explosives, then its connected to the pressure pad (the wooden "plank") then the pressure pad is placed on top of it, then the hole is refilled, covering the IED, then when someone drives or walks over that it explodes.

    EOD oi, oi. EOD oi, oi. I was driving trough Basrah looking for IEDs. And when I saw this I saw I look what you mean. No really now people will really look out for the IEDs.

    I shall definitely start placing those rock piles outside known blufor positions though, just to freak them out

    Pile of stones are nice but won't the enemy spot that miles out?

    Can the stones be placed where there isn't an IED?
