Secret weapon??

#1
Watching our local (Calendar) news about the Yorkshire Regt training Afghan Police, A section went by and the second man carrying his SA80, had slung on his back what looked like a black (**** it) boomerang, is it a new re-usable weapon? or WTF was it?

Its a black boomerang.

The Taliban have been using munitions that fail to detonate, turning them into IEDs.

The boomerang is actually a variant of the L109 HE grenade; the clever bit is that if it fails to explode near the target, it'll return to the thrower.

The time delay fuse has been replaced by a time-limited contact fuse.

Honest.
