Bangalore Torpedo - 4x6' Tube Set

Bangalore Torpedo is designed to produce a continuous line charge for breaching barbed wire entanglements 4 x 6ft torpedoes fitted with connection pieces make up the standard British charge. Each charge is filled with ammonal, a mixture of TNT and aluminum with a booster fittedinto each end. TNT with RDX boosters are also used. A detonator well made of thin brass is fitted into the rear of each tube, so that the charge can be assembled in any order. The connectors fitted to the opposite end to the detonator well are spring loaded for quick fitting and quick release, and ensure a face-to-face contact between the charges. A light duty disc seals each charge permitting total deflagration.

The tubes are of steel, and it is the shrapnel effect that clears the wire obstacle. A solid hardwood nose cone
is clipped into the lead charge to facilitate access through an obstacle.This charge arrangement does not require separate connectors and the 4 torpedoes are complete and ready to fire. A plain No.8 detonator fitted into the rearmost torpedo will initiate the whole charge.
