The A-M18A1 Claymore mine is a command-detonated directional antipersonnel mine prepackaged for rapid deployment.
Most Claymore mines issued to Stargate Command come equipped with a remote detonating system for use with a short range remote. This allows flexible placement of the mine without the potential for identifying the team via following the cord.
Behind the scenesEdit
- In the TV shows, the Claymore is portrayed as a purely explosive device. In reality, the Claymore is a directional mine which uses C4 to fire approximately seven hundred 1/8 inch steel balls in a 60 degree arc.
