    So A 71, I'm interested to know. Those IEDs, are they set up to only take out vehicles, or would a human set it off if they accidentally stepped on the pressure plate?

    Thanks for being a Marine, man! When I was in the Army we (of course) used to enjoy a joke at the Marines' expense, but then I got a platoon sergeant who had been a Marine Scout Sniper during the first Gulf War. After a few beers sometimes he'd tell us some stories, and let me tell you, we started respecting Marines real quick. Oo-rah!

      It depends Franklin. Some are made to be more sensitive than others. For example, you could make one that a human could jump on and not blow up but a vehicle can still trigger it.
