Armada International;Oct/Nov2009, Vol. 33 Issue 5, p16
The article discusses the wall-breaching systems developed for military operations, specifically in urban environments, and the new developments on these systems. An example is the Panzerfaust 3 developed by Dynamit Nobel. The system is based on the Davis principle, of which a counter-mass made of iron powder is launched backward as the projectile leaves the launcher. Other developments are also cited, including their neutrtalising, busting, thermobaric, and shoulder launch features.
