Having seen the 'explosive entry technique' at the 13 second point I would like to state here and now, I don't want to be rescued. Leave me with the hostage takers..... it's safer.
Seems to demonstrate the follies of getting chosen to carry the Petard on a 19th Century assault. I bet he didn't volunteer for that detail..... or if he did, I bet he didn't rig his own charge. Some other 'let's make it spectacular for the public' merchant did, and then made sure he was nowhere near it.
The funniest part for me was watching the bus rock as EMOE Man sprints towards it with his bang stick. If the occupants were volunteers then they must be fucking mad, because they sure as hell knew what was about to happen to them.
Russian SF Soldier "Oh mighty Emperor Mong, surely the explosive charge in these new stun grenades is far too large to be used in the confines of a small bus"
EM "Silence, tie it to the top of your hoolie bar and scop it through the bus window, the resulting blast will be such as to incapacitate the Xrays without risking death, serious injury and deafness to yourself"
I fucking loved that, still have tears in me eyes. Kept playing the 13 second point over and over. I don't know whether he loves or hates that part of the job, thought he blew himself up at first, laughed my arse off
That's the way to do it though, no pissing about
