Bomb Disposal Suits
In the modern age and with the incredible number of improvised explosive devices now in use in areas of conflict such as Afghanistan, the bomb disposal engineer has never been needed more or faced such a dizzying array of explosive devices. I believe that more lives have been lost and injuries caused amongst the forces serving in current combat zones by various improvised explosive devices than by any other means. Insurgents using the hardware of war such as artillery shells littered around these conflict zones to inflict death and destruction are why there are so many teams in these conflict zones tackling these bombs. The pictures displayed here show two of the suits used by the British Army designed to keep these brave servicemen alive when things go wrong but still providing the movement needed while working.
