Often when we would go to the field we would be given a party favor or two to use while we were out there for training called an Arty Sim, or artillery simulator. These devices were most likely given to senior personnel, for good reason. In the wrong (right) hands their destructive power could wreak havoc when unleashed...see below...
In additions we also were sometimes given training grenades or smoke to use in the field as well....the same type of mishaps occur....
...man, talk about a weak throw!!
Lastly, just when you think a single troop with explosives can really go to town...just wait to see what happens when groups of troops get TOGETHER to use high explosives!
OK, that last one was an actual legit use of explosives, but still funny!
