Hello,
In the context of Armadillo, Janus Metz's documentary about a UK-Danish base in Afghanistan the commentary speaks of improvised explosive devices (IED) in Danish. (improviserede eksplosive ladninger/Improviseret sprængladning ) While often using the English acronym IED some times he used a different term of the same IED. Weisel bombe perhaps? Or something along those lines.

The English subtitles were at times a little approximative, so I never tied down the word. I imagine it is something close to homemade bomb.

    Hello,
    IED is often referred to as "vejsidebombe" - roadside bomb. As I remember it this term is used in the Armadillo documentary.
