Some unknown maniac is threatening a navigation company to blow up one of its luxury transatlantics, the "Britannic", now in high sea with one thousand two hundred passengers. He is asking for a five hundred thousand pound sterling ransom, otherwise the seven bombs aboard will explode. An experienced anti-bomb squad is sent to the "Britannic", but although all the bombs are located, a very high skill level will be necessary to dismantle them. Perhaps that task is impossible.

Juggernaut tells Porter that there are seven 50-gallon drums of Amatol on the ship, 7000 pounds total. This would mean each drum has to contain 1000 pounds of explosives. Amatol is a dry pressed or cast mixture of TNT and Ammonium Nitrate. Drums of that size typically only hold about 250 to 400 pounds of dry chemical compounds depending on their density, plus we know the drums are not full since each has a sizable cavity in the middle as seen during the defusing.
