The e-book includes chapters on Personal Security and Safety, Household
Security, Surveillance, Car Bombs and Package Bombs. Blood Reckoning:
Personal Security, Safety & Surveillance provides the reader with both
explanations and checklists applicable to defending yourself, your family, your
vehicles and your home.
“The booby-trapping of vehicles is a method of attacking our families which has been resorted to by our enemies in
the past and could still be used in the future. It is a particularly pernicious method of attack because car-bombs are
difficult to detect and they can be effective in achieving their objective.
Types of car bombs
The various types of car bombs are distinguished by the ways that they are detonated. There is an almost infinite
variety of methods of detonation due to the complexity of vehicles and the range of physical actions and processes
that take place when a vehicle is in operation. Bombs can be rigged to function in a vehicle by pressure, pressure-
release, pull, push, tilt, acceleration, braking, motion, velocity, electrical, chemical, thermal and barometric activating
systems. In addition, a bomb can be placed in a vehicle and detonated by various detonating systems independent
of the vehicle. A timing device set to fire the bomb at a time when it is known that the target person will be in or near
the vehicle can just as well be used. Remote firing methods such as concealed wires and radio control can also be
The table at the end of this section indicates some of the places where bombs could be located and the methods
that would be used to detonate them. There are four basic areas where a bomb can be placed in a vehicle:
- the engine compartment;
- the outer bodywork, including the underneath of the vehicle;
- the passenger compartment;
- the trunk.
What should be borne in mind, however, is that a car-bomb consists of two essential components - an explosive
charge and a triggering mechanism - and that these are not necessarily together in one of these four areas.”
