|Behind the scenes|
Daisy Cutter is the nickname of the explosives packs that were supposed to be dropped on the Tree of Souls in Avatar, but which eventually failed. Depending on the size of the target, the explosives are packed in palettes of variable size. Each explosive contains an explosive substance and a flammable liquid. The specific ignition mechanism for these explosives is unknown, as is their real name.
Daisy Cutters are UN DOT class 1.1, which defines them as "Explosives with a mass explosion hazard" (as visible on the label). This category also contains Nitroclycerine and TNT.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
