Default Metalworking Saves Lives...

800kb+ PowerPoint slide presentation. 500lb. explosive charge goes off
under a vehicle and the armor plating saved everyone. Only the driver had
an injury... Broken ribs from the steering wheel. I'm sure they all had
ear problems, but that's to be expected when you are in a metal box and a
huge explosion goes off under you...

That is impressive. It's interesting the way that the blast ejected the
engine from the front of the truck, but left the passenger compartment
unharmed.

This was in Iraq I assume?

Best wishes,

This is what the original post I read about it said:

armored personnel carrier.

Damn glad to hear we're making headway in protecting folks this way.

*** END ***

I wish I had more info...
