Vesuvius™ is the largest shaped charge produced by Alford Technologies. As Vesuvius™ is based on our smaller Krakatoa™ charge, it has been designed to be a user-filled modular charge that is supplied in kit form. All that the operator needs to add is plastic explosive, a detonator and a bit of imagination.

The body is provided with integral ridges for aligning a Picatinny rail; this facilitates the use of a rifle sight for accurate aiming. An explosive loading tool and legs to stand the charge upon are also provided. One projectile is provided already within the product.
