[OOC] Shaped Charges in action. ENGINEERS TAKE NOTES!

Recommended Posts

it's worth noting that's just from a tiny charge using 21st century tech.

engineering charges are probably much higher yield (not to mention bigger) with higher quality space liners and shit.

in other words if you put this on the mid section of a marauder, the marauder will probably now become 2-marauder

from the old guide:

In addition to safety, the trainee should be aware of the capabilities of the standard five hundred gram charges they are issued. An average detonation of one charge can produce an explosive force reaching seven thousand two hundred meters per second, and while the explosion does not innately produce shrapnel it does throw superheated earth or sand, metal or wood shards, or anything else it displaces at these speeds 

...

A shaped plastic explosive charge could penetrate the average blast door at around five inches thick, and create a hole large enough for a man to duck through.
