    Probably not a lot you CAN do to “utilize” them.
    Unless you can get some dupe to dig them out, take them apart and melt down the explosive and reuse it like the Vietnamese did.

    Didn’t we just see a posting about how they were there thanking the old soldiers? Maybe you can get them to show you how they did it?

    But yeah, going around messing with them, bad news. I’d shoot the crap out it with a sniper rifle from a good distance to make sure it’s not going to say “hello” before you go kicking it.

    You guys DO know these things are dangerous right?

      There are two standard procedures in this case. First – to destroy on the spot using added explosives and some added soil cover on top of it all. If this would cause too much damage to the nearby structures – then there is no other option and they have to dig them out and take it to a safe place where they are destroyed by a controlled explosion. I know in some cases of large WW II munitions prior to transportation they may try to cut the bomb into smaller pieces with a controlled explosion. Yes, it sounds contradictory to the intuition, but it works.

    “Some dupe”….. like that guy from the UN with the blue helmet on…. Good grief.

    The things on pics are mostly burned out roket bosters from Uragan MLRS and Tochka U tactical missiles (the large green ones), their warheads detach or open (if its cluster) in flight before hitting the target, and the roket motor drops randomly somethere near.
