    Its a photo of a steel section that has been cut/machined through its thickness to show stress fractures so a gun mantlet that has been hit by an AP round?

    Not Suez, but BAOR

    Steel yes but not cut through & not a mantlet, a bit more mundane

    Yes well done Fred!

    BAOR

    Caernarvon!

    Yes one of several issues with steel components. It was showing "Extensive cracking of the right hand main brake drum"
