Marines with 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion launch a line charge from an Assault Breacher Vehicle here for the first time in the fleet, Nov. 23. The line charge, a long string of C4 explosives attached to a rocket, is used to clear a lane of all mines or improvised explosive devices so that tanks and other large equipment have a safe path to navigate on.
