Required ASAP: Millions facing Mexico at the border. Too bad the entire current supply is in Afghanistan being fondled by illiterate camel jocks and the Military-Industrial complex hasn’t agreed on how many thousands of dollars of taxpayer money the new batch will cost.
That has been my border security plan, for a while. But, Claymores are pretty much ComDet, and not emplaceable (though some units have been known to add remote comms to them for more flexibility). FACSCAM and other area deniability devices would be a far more harsh deterrent.
What is that thing?
Claymore anti-personnel mine. It reads FRONT TOWARD ENEMY. Sprays a bunch of steel balls. -Snakepit
Poor placement. Who’s not going to see that out in the open?
When you see it it's too late.
One of my favorite memories of the Army was running a claymore range right at the end of the fiscal yea. At the end of the day, all the troops had rotated through and we still had a dozen or so to expend. Good fun.
Useful for tilling the garden.
not armed. the detonator goes in either of the elbow looking things on top. if that was my view i would assume since i'm still alive that its not being watched, so tip it over and crawl away, very quickly.
Exactly."Wait for flash" on that thing ain't never gonna happen.Cut wire. Depart with new toy."Now I have a Claymore. Ho-Ho-Ho."If the VC got to that point, they'd either do that, or look for anti-handling devices, then turn it around 180°.Clack-clack Surprise!
