42
More than 26 thousands of residents of the city of Paderborn (Germany) were evacuated due to bomb disposal from the Second World War, reports RIA News DPA message.




A British bomb weighing tons of 1,8 was found in the garden of one of the houses. The ammunition is at a depth of 80 centimeters, so its detonation can cause great damage,
says the publication.

Authorities have announced an evacuation within a kilometer from the find. It is reported that “among the facilities to be evacuated are two hospitals, several nursing homes and a university”. In addition, residents of certain areas of the historic city center are forced to leave their homes.

For evacuees, temporary shelters were organized. "The police, firefighters, emergency personnel and more than a thousand volunteers ensure that people completely release the danger zone," the agency writes.



As the newspaper notes, annually in Germany about 5,5 are neutralized with thousands of ammunition of various types. According to experts, there are still tens of thousands of them in the country. During the war, about 2-million bombs were dropped on Germany, approximately 100 thousands of them did not explode (5%).

About 162 thsd. Tons were dropped on the territory of the Ruhr region, 68 thsd tons to Berlin and 45 ths tons to Hamburg.

        In our museums there are no such people, unless you specially sent people to England for her.

        But seriously, if this Easter egg withers in many houses, you will have to insert windows.

        The Allies used bombs up to 10t. A 10t bomb was shown on Discovery. The explosion could not destroy the bomb body. 2/3 of the case remained intact. The wall thickness is approximately 40 mm. The leading shard with two hands barely lifted. The bomb body only touched a finger, did not try to lift. Everything was preserved in an underground submarine plant.

    I remember that one of the methods for the disposal of ammunition was freezing with liquid nitrogen, while the springs in the detonators lose their elasticity. Only this fool will need a lot of nitrogen.

        Somehow, according to REN TV, everyone does not like it, they showed a new Russian way of neutralizing dangerous ammunition. I can’t find the video, I'll try in words. The bottom line is that with something, whether with a laser, or with something else, the explosive ordnance is stupidly burned out, after which the explosive is not capable of exploding. Sorry to write clumsily.

        over time, the explosives become unstable - the fuse again rusted and is standing on a combat platoon. when and how it cracks, no one knows. maybe never already - although the Germans are pedants in their field

    Somehow I found an anti-tank mine post-war - and the rot rot, and the fuse. Can this bomb really explode? There, the whole body is already rusted, go!

      Well, it’s not the case that explodes; It is, of course, good to hope that the fuse is defective, but hell knows? And you are happy if you were personally convinced of the malfunction of the fuse in the mine and rotten roofing material found.

        What explodes, I am in the know laughing drinks And at the expense of "happy", so they teach it. The mine-blasting manual is still gathering dust on the shelf.
        But I, in fact, what. If the body rotted, the bomb rotted 100%.

      Vladimir, usually the ammunition is first checked by jerking, as I mine. How will they pull 1,8 tons? Seen from the couch - an overhead charge in place. drinks

        Then the Cheops pyramid around it needs to be poured. And then at home in the district like a crumb from the table will blow away. In fact, it is not clear, as much as 1800 kg. If in a residential quarter, then it was more rational to pour a bunch of 250-current instead of one. The radius of destruction of a single bomb grows only as a cubic root of the mass of explosives. Everything above 500 kg is used only for ultra-protected purposes (thick concrete battleship or battleship). A strange find for a provincial town. Maybe the pilots didn’t get to where they wanted?

    To be more precise, not 2, but entire 4 hospitals are located there close to each other.
