Claymore - A particularly powerful sort of anti-personnel landmine used by the U.S. Armed Forces. The Claymore has an effective range of tens of metres that are completely blanketed by shrapnel once activated, making it very effective for ambush operations. Claymores have the shape and size like a slightly bent brick, their cases are made out of metal or plastic and are easily recognised by a legend that says something like "Front towards the enemy" in order to aim them properly, considering that they develop a fairly directional explosion once activated.
