Fifty percent of any military manual on explosives consists of mathematical tables for calculating amounts of explosives needed, safe firing distances, power requirements for firing circuits, and formulas for cutting structural steel, timber, and breaching various forms of bunker material. Lightfoot has memorized all of them, as well as all the conversion tables for foreign and non-military explosives. He's not taking any chances...
"Lightfoot has elevated being careful to an artform. You might say he's a Zen fussbudget. His eyes sweep the ground before him in measured quadrants, alert for tripwires, signs of digging, and out-of-place vegetation. He sniffs the air for that tell-tale plastic explosive smell of 'dead rubber.' Lightfoot may take twice as long to clear an area, but at least you won't get any nasty surprises."

Fifty percent of any military manual on explosives consists of mathematical tables for calculating amounts of explosives needed, safe firing distances, power requirements for firing circuits, and formulas for cutting structural steel, timber, and breaching various forms of bunker material. LIGHTFOOT has memorized all of them, as well as all the conversion tables for foreign and non-military explosives. He's not taking any chances. Being the demolitions specialist for Night Force, it is his responsibility to see that all their missions end with a "bang"!
"Lightfoot has made an artform out of being careful. You might say he's a Zen fussbudget. His eyes sweep the ground before him in measured quadrants, alert for tripwires, signs of digging, and out-of-place vegetation. He sniffs the air for that tell-tale plastic explosive smell of 'dead rubber.' Lightfoot may take twice as long to clear an area, but at least you won't get any nasty surprises."
