I know of one ground burst [or "explosion-with-dirt-flying"] that is in the FX library- but were there any others with flame or "sparkle" elements added?

I have a "Powered Suit" concept I'm trying to prep for possible funding and the one ground effect is fine, but if I don't have the budget necessary to use 'ground dragons' [a type of forced air/gas mulch throwing devise that simulates an explosion without the real concussion!] I have to convince producers that "body hits" on robot supersuits and ground explosions can be simulated using computer tech [or in this case computer technology that I have accesss to!].

If the primary ground burst is capable of being tweaked, feel free to jump in and offer some instruction! [such as adding an AR15 flash to the ground burst, etc!]
