I was forwarded a letter from a gentleman who sells Geiger counters, from a buyer stationed in Afghanistan, who is checking a range and the equipment they are using to test fire weapons.
Should he be worried about the weapons he is testing becoming dangerous?
Naturally he was concerned, do to a high background reading from the range and general area, which the seller says is somewhat dependent on altitude.
The thought came up that perhaps some of the background came from Soviet DU usage and I am ignorant of their DU usage.
SO did the Soviets have / use DU in Afghanistan?
