Military & Police
The Military and Police use Exothermic cutting much the same as Fire and Rescue. When attacking a target they can use Exothermic cutting to quickly perform forced entry into buildings, bunkers and even prisons. The specialized units they use are man portable and can be accomplished by a single operator with a minimum of support equipment.
Oxylance manufacturers specialized cutting rods that can have pyrotechnic ignitors added to the end of the rod so the operator does not have to carry a battery for ignition. Special coatings can be applied to these rods so they can be used above or below water.
