However, defence experts warned there is no “silver bullet piece of equipment” that will solve the problem of mines. Dr Jack Watling, a senior research fellow at the Royal United Services Institute, said: “It’s about the sustainability of equipment they have, and then it’s about their training and ability to use this equipment in combination.” “It’s not the mines that are a problem, it’s the combination of mines covered by fire. You have two conflicting imperatives. One is you have to move fast to avoid being hit by fire, the other is to move slowly to not run over the mines,” Dr Watling added.
