Semtex

From ARRSEpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A well hard bit of ordinance dreamt up by the Czechs...the people who gave us Skoda's (Can you believe it?).

Preferred weapon of choice of the IRA, Hezbollah, ETA, Hamas and related baby butchering chums.

As little as 250g can down an airliner. Around 10 tonnes (40 000 airliner worths) of Semtex is produced annually ... jeez that would be a big bang! See the climax of V for Vendetta for the perfect place to try this out.

Also an energy drink sort of like Red Bull marketed in the Czech Republic.
