Thought this was kind of interesting. Wonder if there are a good supply of chainsaws in the Baltics or eastern Europe? :D

I think there still is available counter measures like the M58.

Although these were developed for IEDs, they could be remissioned for road clearing, as noted in the article..


MICLIC explosions -

The M58 Mine Clearing Line Charge (MICLIC) is a rocket propelled explosive line fired from an Assault Breacher Vehicle (ABV), nicknamed "The Shredder".

The ABV is an M1 Abrams tank modified to carry and launch the 1750 pound C4 explosive line.

The whole package is designed to explode IEDs and mines from a safe distance.
