C-14 Plastic Explosive is a UNSC explosive device designed for demolitions. It is a plastic explosive, a malleable and pliant material that can be molded to match any form. It is heat and shock proof, being only receptive to electrical shocks. The plastic explosive is usually deployed as self sealed brick for moulding or applying to explosives or stored in M379 Explosive Packs.


The C-14 Plastic Explosive is used for a variety of demolitions duties, such as destroying buildings, obstacles, debris and even bunkers, in large amounts. It can also be used to destroy armoured vehicles, either by directly applying the charge or leaving it in the path of the vehicle. It can also be used as an ad-hoc mine, remotely detonating it. It has one other use, being used with IEDs or car bombs, a popular weapon by UNSC Spec Ops preforming unconventional warfare and popular with terrorists. It has even been used as an ad-hoc shaped charge on the nose of vehicles and driven into an another or a building to act as a devastating explosive, if slightly suicidal. For common combat use, it is strapped together in a single block, with an encoded detonator which can be armed and detonated by a universal detonator using radio or infra-red sensors. It can also be placed on a M379 Explosive Pack or M366 Demolition Charge for destroying targets.


The explosive material is activated by an electrical charge, usually from a remote operated device. This sends an encrypted and unbreakable signal through a radio channel, with a range of up to a mile. It can also be activated by attaching primer cords on it and sending an electrical current through them. Timed detonators, with coded locks are available and it can be activated with ad hoc detonators, such as rigged up radios, chatter pads, circuit boards from household devices and other electrical devices.
