Ride GoPro First Person In This Assault Breacher Vehicle As It Uses Explosives To Blast Away Mines

May 23, 2016

Watch this Assault Breacher Vehicle use a M58 Mine Clearing Line Charge (MICLIC) to clear an obstacle during a drill in Grafenwoehr, Germany. The 58 MICLIC is a rocket propelled explosive that can be used to clear landmines or breach obstacles at close range.  A rocket is used to propel the line to it’s desired location and then massive amounts of C4 are used to blast anything that could pose a threat to smithereens.


What the M58 MICLIC lacks in subtlety it makes up for in raw explosive power. The detonation is so powerful that, if you look carefully, you can see what appears to be a sonic boom radiating away from the explosion shortly after detonation.
