    I have never seen this before, but that looks like thermite to me, and I would image it would work

    Very interesting,never heard of an incendiary grenade used for destroying a fieldgun,grenade they show in the vid has INC on the side so assume it is as it says...and I suppose incendiary grenades rely on a chemical reaction to create a high temp range and as long as whatever was left after it burnt was fused to the chamber/bore it would work pretty well

    I have never heard of that before. Assuming it's thermite it would wreck up the gun pretty well

    Got to love thermite. Stable when not ignited, can't be put out with water(makes its own oxygen), can burn through metal, and you can't look at it within 10 feet without causing eye damage (slight damage).

    Best to shut this down but I'll leave it up so other members can think about what it is sensible to post here. Obviously the technical descriptions are out there to be found but it is not wise or allowed to post them here, any repeat of such stupidity will be liable to be subject to stronger measures than merely the deletion of the posts.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Likely the dumbest thread I have ever read on this Forum. Those who contributed to it should have some serious reflection on what you wrote.
