Linear Shaped Charge (LSC) is a v-shaped armoured polymer strip packed with blasting putty. When detonated whilst in contact with a solid object, LSC will cut cleanly through the object, following the principles of the shaped charge theory. LSC is useful for cutting through substances such as plasteel, superdense, and the like. LSC will cut through 50mm of superdense, 750mm of resincrete, 200mm of plate steel, or 150mm of plasteel. It requires detonators and a trigger.
