he ‘pressure fuse’ used in the bombs that were dropped on the Indian Air Force station in Jammu through drones in a first-of-its-kind attack indicates that some elements of the Pakistan army or the ISI helped Lashkar-e-Taiba in fabricating the IEDs, PTI reported.
The improvised explosive device (IED) that pierced the rooftop of one of the IAF buildings at the Jammu airport carried less than one kg of RDX and a cocktail of other chemicals whereas the one that was dropped on the ground contained a little over one kg of the deadly explosives along with some ball bearings, they said.
The sources as per PTI said the IED used in the June 27 attack on the IAF station “definitely” used the technical expertise of the Pakistani military. The ‘pressure fuse’ used is similar to the ones used by the Pakistani army.
A ‘pressure fuse’ is generally used in minefields, anti-tank mines and those dropped by the air force in the fuselage between the explosive and main detonator of a shell or an IED.
The explosive devices are activated by the pressure of either falling on the ground with force or some individual or vehicle passing over it.
