    Myzone allowed me to photograph this book and post the images with information on this forum for the benefit of all members.  The book is a post Desert Storm publishing of the items produced in Iraq by indigenous industry. The images are posted in the order they are show in the book.  I have omitted some images detailing chemical compounds, aircraft bombs, and electronic components.

    First up weapons.

    Amazing! I love the "offensive" and "defensive" hand grenades. I think if you're throwing hand grenades it's pretty much one and the same thing. Also would love to watch the class on teaching Iraqi conscripts the difference between the two.

    I like the Rapid Minefield Breaching System. Its a miniature version of the MICLIC. You fire the projectile from the rifle ad it carries the det cord across the minefield. Not sure how but it detonates (ie on impact or time delay). I wonder how this was issued? Was it specific to engineers or provided to Infantry in the offense? If so, how many had it? I wonder if any were ever found in ODS or OIF? Tom

    One thing to note is that even though Iraq produced it's own low loaders (aka HETs) the embargo hurt/stopped Iraq's ability to produce them and many of the items, shown in this book, leading up to OIF.
