The Bangalore torpedo is designed to produce a continuous line charge for breaching through barbed wire entanglements and clearing the surface of mines and other explosive devices. The charge produces a shrapnel effect which clears the wire or explosive obstacle.
The standard charge consists of 5 x 1m torpedoes with connectors. The charges can be assembled in any order.
A nose cone is clipped into the first charge to facilitate access through an obstacle. This charge arrangement requires no separate connectors and the 5 torpedoes are quickly assembled and ready to fire.
The tubes are made of aluminium alloy.
The charge can be initiated by a detonator or detonating cord.
