            Remember. I then turned up to the conferements, writing about the need to prepare a training place - a trench for throwing grenades. When the colonel is lazy to control the actions of l / s in preparation for classes, you have to selflessly ... The other day in Yu-tube I saw videos about their l / s, which is crookedly throwing grenades. Their officers jump into a ditch, previously dug up around the place from which they drop grenades under their feet, and politely offer the soldier to do the soldier like a father-commander from the ditch. Lying on a grenade is certainly easier than making soldiers look for a shovel and try to dig something there. More mothers of soldiers will attack, mockery of the personnel will be sewn.

              Excuse me, did you throw a combat grenade? If so, then perhaps you remember what jerky happens the first time, how sometimes it sausages, and they can not open their hands. Still, a combat grenade is not a pebble. And the presence or absence of a trench, if a grenade lies under your feet and your legs refuse to walk ... Not everyone can immediately suppress their fear. So not everything is clear here.

                If you are ready, then a braked soldier can be pushed into the trench. And if he (the trench) is not there, then with his chest, with his own - you look and become a Hero. For some reason, normal commanders and simply more experienced fighters are usually watching at the shooting range so that the young one does not turn the barrel at l / s with a gun. Breastfeeding is also easier ... There is a clear order for the discharge of weapons, for the behavior of military personnel at the firing range. Why is everything wrong with a grenade? Moreover, you yourself confirm the high probability of the National Assembly. Or is it so in Russian: a belt behind an armchair and an icon on a dashboard? Organize a place for a feat?

                  We will not argue, I will not say that you are wrong, of course, it is necessary to prepare for the worst. But to push into the trench is not always possible. There is a video on YouTube, also Americans. All by the rules and the trench is nearby. Only a fighter dropping a grenade falls to the ground nearby, covering his head with his hands. How to push it? Anything can happen.

      Most likely they were inside the airborne squad when the fire started, and apparently it was not such a fire that gradually flares up, but something like a flash when the internal compartment was almost completely set on fire at once. I wonder what could happen. Such machines have been used for a long time, maybe something similar has happened already, although hardly. They would write then, and such a flaw would obviously be corrected.

          with a lighter we watched how many solariums remained. Not so long ago, a friend of mine had a son (he was engaged in car repair before the army) he so distinguished himself at the fuel and lubricants warehouse of the military unit. The commander drove him out of the army to eliminate the traces of an emergency (the colors of the tinge and some swelling on his face, the absence of eyebrows).

            I myself once "scored" laughing, also in the warehouse of fuels and lubricants. It was necessary to turn over the barrel with the solarium to one side, and on it the electric pump stood with a hose and a telescopic pipe in the neck, respectively, it was pulling it out to the scrap and disconnecting it was too far to go.
            Well, I took the barrel, put it on the edge and twisted it to the side, but I didn’t calculate it a bit and when it took the vertical position (the pump jumped on it, respectively), I cut the wire and shortened it so that a sheaf of sparks flew straight from the pump base into the open the neck, and the barrel is almost full, thirty liters only pumped out. Then I thought that everything was a kapets, I’m cremating right now ... but I’m lucky, there was little vapor and the diesel fuel burns badly.

              You were extremely lucky that the barrel was almost full and, most likely, it was not very hot! I myself saw the consequences of a similar incident with an almost empty barrel standing under the Sun in June.

In my case, only the bottom remained crumpled from the barrel, but the bottom was crumpled, the rest scattered across the territory of the plant, the culprit with severe burns of naked parts of the body got to the hospital, and his vision also dropped to almost zero. sad

Although he himself had two cardiac arrests due to stress, once perplexity, the second time set up. The third cardiac arrest, ashamed, but I confess, the pill was swallowed, an experimenter of horseradish.

    Solarium if it caught fire is very problematic to put out. Most likely they dragged the car out of the garage, and either the tank exploded, or some sort of capacity.
