Hopefully I'm not hijacking this too much, but Gino, do you happen to know what its name is? I'm working on a paper about IEDs and while I can't seem to find out names of what seems to be some of the most common systems. In particular I'm especialy looking for someway to ID a Warlock system.

Sorry, there are so many systems and new ones coming on line all the time, I can't keep up with them. I have only seen this set-up a few times. Good luck.

Jeff,
Contact me via email and I can probably help you. I have my pocket/cheat books they gave us during pre deployment training on all the latest IED stuff. Got to dig them out of my duffle bag.

Gino, no worries. That very reason is why I'm trying to sort it all out. Doesn't help that while most of this stuff isn't classified, the Army is rightly not advertising it all.

Ric and Pete, glad to hear from both of you. Pete email sent.

Yes it is mostly called Duke in Stryker circles but it is used on all vehicles. I was w/ 3rd ID beore they deployed and Bradleys and Humvees and other vehicles had this.

Doesn't have to be just the CV either. Other variants can use it too.

I will be doing a review of the CV and it should appear here soon. Sorry Jim you do not have it by now. I should have it to you in a day or so.

Thanks Bob. So Duke and Warlock are the same system.

Well, I would not put it that way. As Gino says there are a number of different systems and I personally believe many soldiers get the names confused themselves. But, those that I have contact with tell me Warlock was the older system using the white/tan squat looking tube. Warlock looked like PVC tubing on a square base. THis base was magnetic and so could be plopped just about anywhere on the vehicle and the wire traced back into a hatch. Sorry, but this is the best photo I have at hand at the moment on this computer (my Stryker model).



Duke is the newer system now in place as already discussed. Of note, many, if not most, Dukes have a few wires to bottom at angles. These are for low hanging wires and are met to guide them up and over the Duke as the vehicle drives by, much like the system used on the Bradley turret roof.

Somehow I screwed this up, but that is Jeff's quote at very beginning.

Thanks Bob. Nice model by the way...though I'm sure I said the same thing when you finished it.

Yes. Boy, this is a great MILES equipped Stryker. Has most things I decided to model, except for the tow bar. In this photo you can even make out the base. The only detail not seen is a band around the base of the tube with some small holes in it. I used a spare piece of PE on mine. The top is capped too. Note the litter under the bustle rack.
