In recent years law enforcement agencies have discovered that it is possible to shape a suitable charge through the combination of detonating cord and conventional intravenous bags, plastic soda bottles, or similar containers. To avoid the inconsistencies occasioned by such use, a flexible, foldable and easily portable apparatus was designed and has been successfully employed as a jacketing material for breach charges. The apparatus, hereafter referred to a a "breach bag" can be adapted to many different situations which necessitate the controlled penetration of a locked entryway, wall or armored surface. Essentially, the breach bag incorporates one or more bladders that can be filled with water (or another non-compressible fluid) or sand. By changing the configuration of the breach bag, a directed blast wave or a shaped charge projectile can be provided, the particular blast characteristics depending largely on the bladder configuration and contents.
