the old IEDs was to explode big and send shrapnel everywhere. wat these insurgents attempts to do is concentrate all the explosion to one direction
instead of just goin outward everywhere. the new armor on humvess as well as the use of M113, Strykers, Abrams, Bradleys, etc. it has advantages and
disadvantages. u pay for wat u get, all big explosion that goes everywhere but less penetration, or one direction with all the energy but just one
direction that would miss. the old IEDs u see the big explosions that consumes a Humvee, but it sometimes doesnt penetrate. back then it could
penetrate the soft skin Humvees, but the new armored Humvees makes the insurgents having to deal with tactics.
