Quick question for you - I was watching the footage of the balcony entry at the Iranian embassy and one thing that has always amazed me was the size of the breaching charge that was used. It looks more like whoever it was caught a mortar in the lap rather than a window/door being removed. Anyway just curious if you knew whether this was intentional or a someone got a little overzealous with the charges.

Two good memory aids for ensuring breaching charges have teh desired effect are:
"If in doubt make it stout" and "P for Plenty"!!!!
