ANARCHY 'N' EXPLOSIVES =====> VOLUME 2 <===== This volume defines a few varieties of misc explosives, charges, and whatever I had in mind at that time. Anyway, these formulas are not as precise in measurements for they were given in brief summary. However, they will work, and if used correctly can be safe and "fun". FRENCH AMMONAL: ------------------- Type: Low Explosive Ingredients: 86% Ammonium Nitrate 6% Stearic Acid 8% Aluminum Powder Description: French ammonal is an easily improvised low explosive mixture. It is generally less effective than an equal weight of TNT. The material is loaded by pressing it into a suitable container. Initiation by an Engineer's special blasting cap is recommended. Comments: This material was tested. It is effective. References: TM 31-201-1, Unconventional Warfare Devices and Techniques, para 1401. TETRYTOL: ------------- Type: High Explosive Ingredients: 75% Tetryl 25% TNT Description: Tetryol is a high explosive bursting charge. It is used as a demolition explosive, a bursting charge for mines, and in artillery shells. The explosive force of tetrytol is approximately the same as that of TNT. It may be initiated by a blasting cap. Tetrytol is usually loaded by casting. Comments: This material was tested. It is effective. References: TM 9-1900, Ammunition, General, page 55. TM 9-1910, Military Explosives, page 188. IMPROVISED PLASTIC EXPLOSIVE FILLER: ---------------------------------------- Type: High Explosive Ingredients: Finely Powdered Potassium Chlorate Cdata bstals Petroleum Jelly **MIX THOUROUGHLY** Description: This plastic explosive filler can be detonated with a No. 8 commercial blasting cap or with any military blasting cap. The explosive must be stored in a waterproof container until ready to use. Comments: This material was tested. It is effective. References: TM 31-210, Improvised Munitions, sec I, No. 1. FLAMABILITY OF GASES: ------------------------- Type: Gas Explosive Ingredients: Explosive Gas Description: Under some conditions, common gases act as fuel. When mixed with air, they will burn rapidly or even explode. For some fuel-air mixtures, the range over which the explosion can occur is quite wide while for others the limits are narrow. The upper and lower amounts of common fuels that will cause an ignitable mixture are shown in the table below. The quantity shown is the percentage by volume of air. If the fuel-air mixture is too lean or too rich, it will not ignite. The amounts shown are therefore called limits of inflamability. Gases (% by volume of air) Fuel (Gas) Lower Limit Upper Limit ------------------------------- ----------- ----------- Water Gas Or Blue Gas 7.0 72 Natural Gas 4.7 15 Hydrogen 4.0 75 Acetylene 2.5 81 Propane 2.2 10 Butane 1.9 9 Comments: These fuels have been tested under labratory conditions. They are effective. Ignition depends on method of initiation, uniformity of mixture, and physical conditions. References: Bulletin 29, Limits of Inflammability of Gases and Vapors H.F. Coward and G.W. Jones, Bureau of Mines, U.S. Government Printing Offece, 1939. !!!WARNING!!! ! USE THESE FORMULAS AND OTHER FORMS OF ANARCHY/EXPLOSIVES AT YOUR OWN RISK !
