Re: Products that I really like
The bulldozer method is very dangerous, but as Rootbeer says, the Seabees did it anyway, as have many other patriots over the years. The new, far safer, Marine machine has a V shaped blade in front, which is the preferred way to clear. The line charge which looks sort of like 100s of bags of flour attached to a rope, is for the really tough stuff. The bags are actually full of explosive. The line charge is fired, lands in a line on the ground and then explodes.
In a play on words, my mentor once told me that "There are no good experienced sappers", because to be "experienced", was to be dead. The new machine changes that. Since it's introduction, according to the TV show, no Marine has ever been hurt clearing mines with it.
