We hope to goodness you never have to experience a real war zone.
From what we've heard, they're aggressive, emotionally scarring and seriously bad for your health.
Largely, because armed forces have a habit of setting off all manner of man killers - from bullets to the following: massive bombs.
In all seriousness, this video recorded by a US troop shows the devastating power of a bomb from a range of around three kilometres. While the explosive plume of smoke and fire looks a safe distance away, the force of the resulting shockwave is astonishing.
Terrifying. Apologies for the F-bombs too.
