Prisoner Snatch Demo Practice
The prisoner snatch was one of teh hardest but most valuable in terms of inteligence gathering missions SOG undertook, the rewards were high (an RnR trip to Thailand)but so was teh chance of failure. Many methods were tried such as injuring the prisoner with slileced weapons, this did leave the prisoner injured and hard to handle to teh extraction site.
One other method was aimed at getting one prisoner from a patrol of enemoy soldiers. A number of C4 demo charges were linked together in sewuence with a cap left for the prisoner, teh theory being the C4 would kill the patrol and the prisoner would be lfect alive, but shocked, in teh gap. You can see the team here practising this method. The charges would be taken on teh mission pre-prepared and attached to an M60 detonator for command activation of an M142 firing device for trip wire activation,
