Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

I'm trying to find an English written article, summary:

in the night from tuesday to wednesday there was, in a Belgian armsdepot of the army, a major theft of weapons, official reports indicate that LAWs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M72_LAW)  were stolen. There is also mention of a heavy kind of thunderflashes and other ammo that was stolen....

our minister of defence said...sit down in your chair...ok?...that the security was waterproof  hdbng

so, or it's an inside job or some paratroopers jumped right into the bunker  hdbng

unofficial reports mention worse but I can't go into that publicly (contact me by PM).

Also happened here at Airbase Gilze.
500 Glock pistols stolen.

The problem is that we rely to much on electronic systems for security.
And often a system thats made by men can be disabled by other men to.

Given whats been stolen I think this stuff will show up sooner or later with robberies of armored cars for money transports Knipoog
But thats just my two cents.

There is really no substitute for a team watching over facilities 24 hours a day.

Here in Spain the prime suspect is ETA, seriously weakened in France lately. The idea is that they evaded the (only recently) relentless pressure of authorities (3 CINCS fell within 6 month) in Fraance by moving to the more relyxed BeNeLux.

What do you guys living there make from this?

Actually there is something better Knipoog

recently tests have been completed with some sort of liquid.
It can be thinned and sprayed over huge areas.
It changes colour of an object if its been touched, a satelite will pick up any disturbance in the sprayed area.
For instance, if used along a pipeline it can alert you at once if someone walks along the pipes.

Interesting stuff.

Ahh yes.  That's the principles of remote sensing at work.  That spray would give off a certain signature that the GIS software would be programmed to pay attention to.  If the pattern of the sprayed area starts to change with a certain signature forming a sort of path or a line, an alarm would go off.
That spray is probably made up of something that generally doesn't wash off very well, but sticks to rubber soles of shoes better than it does to whatever else it is being applied onto.
Just a guess.
