Inside DM Kineton: Western Europe’s LARGEST Ammunition Depot | Forces TV

We have been granted exclusive access to the restricted areas of Defence Munitions Kineton – the largest ammunition depot in western Europe. The base stores more than 60% of the entire Ministry of Defence’s munitions and is under very strict controls – anything which risks setting off the explosives, like phones and smart watches, is banned.

    They drive on the left and handle ammunition? Omg



  2. par co on November 27, 2021 at 8:50 pm

    I’d prefer some of these to plow my fields



  3. Paul Allen on November 27, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    God!, This takes me back, DM Kineton or CAD Kineton as it was know back in the day, was my first posting after basic training back in 1986/7. Served with some great lads and have some good memory’s.

    what is the point of hiding in a shelter, if the shelter is at a safe distance??



  5. Heather Jackson on November 27, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    that’s MY dad in the stills, WOW 4;09 on the left 😉

    *’Kine – ton’ ?*
    You’d think that the purpose of the site would suggest it should be pronounced _’kin – eh – ton’_ (as in _’kinetic’_ ) due to the massive amount of potential _kinetic energy_ being stored there, albeit in _chemical_ form.

    Here’s me thinking the grass was on the storage roofs in order to make it harder to see from the air 🤷🏼‍♂️😂



  8. steve hughes on November 27, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    Worked there for 2 1/2 years in the 80s. Worked on the dems grounds and was involved in movents of ammunition by road and rail.



  9. Josh on November 27, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    Keep 60 of munitions in one place and then also tell the world about it.. nice



  10. 360def on November 27, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Very beautiful place well done to British army



  11. fin screenname on November 27, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    Think they would build a sand pit or something besides blowing hole in the lawn.



  12. shaun breeze on November 27, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    I am so glad this has been done, I have often wanted to see inside an existing/in-use munitions bunker/store. Really detailed insight which has cured my curiosities! great to see the MoD allowing access and been quite open. Great watch.



  13. Shandy_ on November 27, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    When zombie apocalypse we go there 😆😆



  14. jimbopara Alexander on November 27, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    One man risk " Captain get with the PROGRAMME "



  15. Conjamsh on November 27, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    I live just around the corner from here, always worried a nuke will go off



  16. sapper steve on November 27, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    Brilliant; now every nut job knows what is in there?

    You might be “FORCES TV” but without the unsung MOD Civilian staff you’re going nowhere. Since Samuel Pepys day and before the support to the military has been victuallers, general stores and armourers from the civilian world. Now they are called Civil Servants and sadly that term seems to be a negative in our modern world. Not by me I have to say.

    You appear to overlooked a wealth of skill sets that are needed when military person X is moved on by the drafting and promoting system. You also may detect a degree of ire… 38 years ago this month the military could only perform Thatcher’s bidding with a very impressive supply chain (he said speaking from very personal experience). Today every one is wailing about lack of stock – not in my day sunshine!



  18. Oceanic 84 on November 27, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Forces TV needs to dial back on the YT ad frequency on this channel. Too many ads.



  19. Shaun on November 27, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    Grass is on the bunkers so aerial surveillance is more difficult to make out bunkers isn’t it? Not too keep it safe lmao



  20. Darren Michie on November 27, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Really love this channel, numerous members of my family are In the Army, I say what you been doing "nothing," they say. Great vids, thank you for this.



  21. Angelo Melville on November 27, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    KABOOM!!



  22. Iain Smith on November 27, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    Not only an active army base but also the Edgehill battlefield. They used to do escorted tours of the battlefield back in the late 60’s.



  23. Noluv 123 on November 27, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Why destroy ammo if we gonna probably need it for ww3



  24. Nick Henley on November 27, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    Did I hear that right, only 85grams of explosive in a Paveway 4? Must be extremely pokey explosive if so.



  25. nebraska fan on November 27, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    Miesau ammunition depot is bigger



  26. Totoro San on November 27, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    sure they tell the whole world where they keep their ammunition. this just one of the many depots they have stationed around the country



  27. JONREP VLOGS on November 27, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    So scary but that is the reality if your doing kind of job. Take care always and pray



  28. Bryon Slatten on November 27, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    That female Captain’s uniform is too big for her.



  29. Joey Goguen on November 27, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    5 year shelf life on grenades sad.



  30. John Nunn on November 27, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    500lb bomb, 85gms of explosive. Of course.



  31. Juha Juonio on November 27, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    This is an old demolition video from Finland. 5tons of high explosive, safe distance is 8km.



  32. caswallon1415 on November 27, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    So those comments in MSM as to British Forces needing to buy in small arms Ammunition from Belgium,etc.,were "Fake News",then?



  33. xrayfish2020 on November 27, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Can’t anyone keep their mouths shut!



  34. chris ward on November 27, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    God I’m glad I watched that 😂



  35. Ean E on November 27, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Gotta love the constant ticking sound, thanks forces news!



  36. Ross Smith on November 27, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    85 grams of HE in a 500 lb bomb.
    That will scratch the paint work and that’s about all.
    Try 230 odd kg.
    The young fella should learn his products.
    But then again he was RAF.
    Ammo Tech was the best job that I ever done in the Army.



  37. thisisanevilcorp on November 27, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Biggest fear is to not have enemies at all.



  38. ursus the pipe smoker on November 27, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Yeah they’re super guys and all that but they all talk in the same way bit like the police or a pub bore



  39. NotSoMalicious on November 27, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Mines being taken out of service because they’re indiscriminate? War is indiscriminate? Aslong as it doesn’t put us at a tactical disadvantage because I can tell you now Russia and our other potential adversaries still use them. Another example of the British Army being tamed.



  40. Chancery Bunch on November 27, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    so whats that place off the M3 then?



  41. hitawallgaming TM on November 27, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    Beirut has too many fireworks this place has too many booms



  42. M on November 27, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    This is not the biggest ammunition depot of Western Europe. Veenhuizen in The Netherlands is the biggest ammuntion depot in Western Europe. in Veenhuizen are more than 200 ammunitie storage bunkers.



  43. Hugo Stiglitz on November 27, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    i’d love to have a rummage around that place



  44. Niall Duncan on November 27, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Pity the gear wasn’t handed out to the troops for use before it reached its sell by date…..



  45. SerielThriller on November 27, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    What a complete waste of engineering.



  46. VarvasNukka on November 27, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    So what’s the biggest depot in Eastern Europe? I bet its in Russia.



  47. Boo-Yeah!! on November 27, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    Man the Brits are anal about health and safety.



  48. Paul Allen on November 27, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Sorry that should be COD Kineton not CAD – before anyone has me over it 🙂



  49. jarroyolaw on November 27, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    "Largest Ammunition Depot"……but the UK Armed Forces still regularly hit the Americans up for weapons because they’re running out.



  50. Cow Hearder 34 on November 27, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    I’m not sure if I do or no not want to be their neighbor
