The birthday came and went...
And I got a bit of a Birfday Present
A Spikes 'Havoc' 12 inch 37mm "Flare Launcher"
I won't go into the 'who' or 'what' of it, but let's say my readers are the best and man...
This's a prime example of "Full Retard".
I'm now in the process of learning ALL about the legalities of the 37mm "Flare Launcher"
No Buckshot, check
No HE, check
No Flechette, check
Nothin' but fucking flares and 'bird bombs'...
Good copy sir.
Said the Spec-4 to the L.T.
"Whatever you do, do. not. engage. the. enemy. unless. fired. upon."
"Roger that sir" (accidentally fires one off in the -general direction- of the enemy, bringing a shitstorm in on the Area of Operations)
<sweetly> "Can we shoot back now sir?"
Yeah, I foresee this thing causing some issues...
Nevermind the intimidation value.
I've got it loaded with what's called "Dragon's Eggs"
Apparently a whistling 100 yard firework of some force and fire/explosion after impact...
Fire it off, and it screams and whistles til it gets to whatever impact area you're aiming at.
Then it violently explodes in a shower of sparkly bullshit that prolly would light a motherfucker on fire who's too close to aforementioned-impact area.
I'm comfortable with that concept.
And nothing said that the 'bird bombs' can't be mixed with say, Thermate
Thermate is Thermite's pissed off hotter, meaner Big Brother.
Very similar in composition, Thermate uses the same two base elements
Iron Oxide (powdered)
Aluminum Powder (fine 60 grain level powdered)
Then, for the MATE, add:
a -pinch- of Sulphur (yellow powdered)
and a squirt of Barium Sulfate.
By weight the ratio of iron oxide to aluminum powder is 8-3. Both should be powdered as fine as possible as this will make it burn hotter and ignite easier. You still need a good ignition source like powdered magnesium...takes heat to make heat donchaknow
Once lit though?
This shit burns at about 3500 degrees.
Good Mojo/Bad Mojo
Depending on yer needs.
I also am waiting on and will poast pics of the smoke grenades.
Once I get the materials, it's going to be a bitch to be one of my neighbors
Though Serbian War Criminal is gonna be jealous
That much I know fer sure.
So Sergeant's Time Saturday will be coverage of the M203 Grenade Launcher, with the Havoc filling in in the role of the 40mm Launcher. May as well make use of the situation Aye?
