Ieds are no joke
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Jeffrey,
The first thing I notice about those pics is the uniformity of size (and apparently shape) of the missiles. Looks to be spherical and roughly the size of buckshot. Not just an IED, but either an improvised weapon that was encased in something like a mess of ball bearings, or a conventional weapon rather like a claymore mine. The distribution of hits is pretty uniform also, as is direction.

Whatever the projectiles, they were soft...just bounced of the gunshield while disintegrating. Made impressions on the sides (which look to be aluminum) but only penetrated the sheet metal...and likely didn't hurt any occupants, unless the gunner was exposed.

This was no roadside car bomb. Is anything more known about the device?

My son found these pictures at strangemilitary.com. There was no caption that I saw.

Reminds me of an after shot of a "CLAYMORE" that we set off in AFGHAN .Small balls coming at you at the speed of light hurts.......
