From most IED stories and videos I've heard and seen, the IED was only strong enough to disable a vehicle (HMMVs, MRAPS, etc.) and maybe cause a few injuries or casualties. But now that they have been able to take out a heavily armored vehicle, I wonder if the Taliban will start using bigger and bigger IEDs on a regular basis.
Christ, I've only just realised how close to home this tragedy really is. One of the lads (Jake Hartley) is from my home town of Dewsbury and even went to the same school as me, he was in the year above, and some of the other lads are from Huddersfield, which is right next door.
It was a very somber sight to see the town hall's flag at half-mast. Rest in Peace. Never forgotten.
