AbstractA bomb container is made up of: a first open-ended hollow cylinder of steel aving lifting ears, and adapted to rest on one end or the side; and a second open-ended hollow cylinder of steel positioned completely within the first cylinder, with their longitudinal axes substantially perpendicular to each other, and the ends of the second or inner cylinder contoured to closely fit the inner wall of the first or outer cylinder. The outer cylinder is mounted on a pair of elongated channel brackets, having struck-out ears or straps attached to the outside of the inner cylinder, and mounted on a flat support, such as a truck or trailer bed. The inner cylinder contains a liner of foam plastic, vermiculite or other suitable material to support a bomb near the middle of the cylinder and to break up and reduce the initial shock pressure level of an explosion therein.
