The Bangalore Torpedo

The Bangalore Torpedo was invented in 1912 by a British Army Captain in Bangalore, India. In World War 2 the US Army adopted the Bangalore Torpedo and the allied forces used it to great success during D-day. The M1A1 Bangalore Torpedo could be deployed from behind cover. It would be built up by connecting multiple 1.5 meter sections to a length of 15 meters. A complete torpedo could clear a path of barbed wire and mines up to 15 meters long and 1 meter wide. Surprisingly, the Bangalore Torpedo is still in use.
