Wearing the bomb suit

Wearing the bomb suit


If you wear this suit, it’s actually like wearing
two wet blankets, sitting in a sauna for half an hour. You get quite sweaty
if you have to do something, because of the weight.
I think it’s around 40 kilos. You can’t go to an IED with emotion or a
mind that is not focused on the job. What is the next step? What is the step after the next step? You have to think forward. You never know
what you’re going to find over there. You can send in a robot
to see what you’re going to find. But not everything is
actually visible for us. This is a wonderful exercise because you see
other nations working on the same targets, on the same IEDs
and you see different work methods. So it opens actually,
your mind of thinking. And then you take off your helmet
and it’s so refreshing.
