The World’s Deadliest Arms Race: 

‘The World’s Deadliest Arms Race’ tells the real story of how roadside bombs, built in back street village workshops, have become the Taliban’s ‘perfect weapon’ in their war against the coalition in Afghanistan. 

Improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, are the biggest killer of British and American troops in Afghanistan They cost just a few pounds to make but they are frustrating the best efforts of a super power now spending billions of dollars trying to beat them. Frontline troops and journalists describe what it’s like to be caught up in deadly attacks. And in footage specially recorded for this programme Taliban bomb makers talk about IEDs and why they believe the coalition cannot defeat them. 

Using roadside bombs that cost only a few pounds to make in Afghan village workshops, the Taliban have fought the British and American led coalition to a stalemate. 

As American officers and defence contractors explain in the World’s Deadliest Arms Race, the coalition’s electronic counter measures block out their own force’s radios. And the Taliban simply bypass them. Their armoured personnel carriers are so heavy they break down in the Afghan countryside. Today they are being replaced by lighter vehicles which the Taliban can blow up with bigger IEDs. And coalition troops in Afghanistan have had to search for IEDs lying face down on the ground, digging them up with their hands.
