I think they used claymores:

M18 Claymore mine

Anyone with direct experience with them? I talked to an X-Army buddy of mine who was around them in Vietnam who had explosive experience, but did not use Claymores.

Another clue was the color of the explosion. Some of the photo’s showed a pink hue to the explosion. Not sure what explosive would do that.

That pink hue is the vaporized mist of human remains.
The claymor is a directional anti-personnel mine, used for ambushes.

I noticed several buildings near the explosion still had their windows intact. Makes me think it was shrapnel bomb rather than a blast one.

Didn't look pink to me; could have been the film.
