Loux, examine a Viet Cong Claymore type mine which was disarmed by a member of the six-man bomb squad assigned to the U.S. Naval support activity, Saigon, Republic of Vietnam. The cutaway exposes the mine's missiles formed of iron construction rods shaped into a coil and notched to break into deadly pellets.
