Bonfire night

Sat here on my PC and it sounds like WW3 outside. Why can the army not use fireworks, like the ones, which can be bought in the shops, 19 shot cake pack, moon cake pack and the ultimate finale for example to simulate battle? Lots of flashes, tracer and bangs. More realistic than a thundy, or are they too dangerous for squaddies?
