A shape charge would have been easier.

Explosive testing from this summer. Capturing explosives that move at four miles per second wasn’t an easy task.

Happy #Monday ‼️ Here’s a glimpse into our workday!

This specific press is known as the Multi-Explosive Assembly Press System! This press is used in many industries, with the majority being to produce oil and gas perforating shape charges! ⚙️

Made some @marsupialgear purchases for the @kifaru_intl Shape Charge.


I also have a video on YouTube breaking down my setup from last fall and I’m going live in a few to go over my changes for this year. I’ll post the vid after.

One of our biggest goals is to create realistic hunting shots.

You never know what obstacles you might run into out on a hunt. You make do with what you have, and adjust where necessary.

Two Wehrmacht soldiers, one of which is carrying a Panzerfaust 60.

The Panzerfaust is a single shot recoilless anti-armor weapon (not to be confused with a rocket launcher). It was developed to counter the ever-increasing Soviet armor threat posed to the invading Germans.
The Panzerfaust consists of three main parts, the projectile, the launching tube, and the trigger/sighting assembly. The launcher was fairly simple to operate and there were printed firing instructions on the warhead as well. Simple as it was, it still took skill and guts to get within effective range in order to score a sucessful hit with the Panzerfaust.
There were a few variants of the Panzerfaust and the only major difference between them was their effective range. There is a corresponding number at the end of the name Panzerfaust to indicate its range in meters, for example the Panzerfaust 60 had an effective range of 60 meters. The Panzerfaust's warhead was a HEAT (High Explosive Anti Tank) charge and was fairly effective against armor if the shot could be made.

The printed Panzerfaust is from @theminifigco , stickers from @brickmaniatoys , and the minifig bodies and heads are from @dakotasbrickshop

What better ways to celebrate new record high temperatures over here than to talk about HEAT ammunition.

😄

HEAT ammunition, also known as Shaped Charge ammo or Hollow Charge ammo, was developed in the early 1940's. HEAT stands for High Explosive Anti Tank and has nothing to do with high temperatures or melting armor.
When impacting armor, a fuse at the nose of the HEAT round (pic 4) sets off an explosive charge at the back of the round (pic 5). This explosion pushes on a unique hollow metal cone at the front and, due to the "Munroe Effect", this cone collapses and forms a jet of molten metal traveling at hypersonic speeds (pic 6). The jet then forces its way through the armor (pic 7).

The benefit of HEAT ammunition is that it has the exact same armor penetration capabilities at any impact range unlike typical ammunition that loses effectiveness the further out it travels. Another benefit is that HEAT ammo doesn't need high velocity to work well. This helps vehicles with low velocity cannons become more lethal to armor.

The downside to HEAT ammo is that the molten jet needs to be a specific distance from the armor upon impact in order to form and work properly. Too close and the jet won't have enough time to properly form, too far away and the molten jet will dissipate sooner.

One method of defeating HEAT ammunition involves attaching thin metal sheets a short distance from the vehicles surface. This ensures the HEAT round will detonate on the sheet and spend all of its energy in the empty space between the sheet and vehicle hull.

This. This is what life's all about.

I didn't bring my real camera today.

Just went along for the quality time and memories. Snapped a few cell phone pictures, and that's okay.

The weather was beautiful! A little warm in the sun, but not terrible. A long day, but well worth it.

Watching the bond these two share will never get old. And I can't wait for the memories to come, when little man is old enough to head out on hunting trips, and participate in the hunt!

My favorite backpack for shooting competitions is the @kifaru_intl Shape Charge.

Just the right size to carry all my crap and I can toss the rifle in the Sherman pocket if it's a long walk between stages.

Have a friend over doing some plumbing work and he breaks this out. Called it a deburring tool.

I would beg to differ, as would any good EOD TECH. Heading to the demo range to try it out. #shapecharge 😳😱😂😂

The aftermath of multiple shape charges. #explosivetraining #shapecharge #fireinthehole

I was fortunate enough to harvest this great deer yesterday morning 20yrd shot 517grn arrow with an ironwill broadhead Double lung shot , went about 70yards

704th EOD conducted a Platoon led Demolition Range to increase familiarization with shape charges and their effects.

The Lone Star Bomb Squad has welcomed several new members to the team and it was a great opportunity to learn about one of EOD’s most valuable tools!

Who wants to make everyone in the office jealous by adding this to your desk on Monday?

Next time you're at Drivetanks, make sure you add a shape charge to your list of activities and take this cool souvenir home!
