Arrow Ant i-tank Mine

An anti-tank mine, (abbreviated to "AT mine"), is a type of land mine designed to damage or destroy vehicles including tanks and armored fighting vehicles..Compared to anti-personnel mines, anti-tank mines typically have a much larger explosive charge, and a fuze designed only to be triggered by vehicles or, in some cases, tampering with the mine.. For example, during the U.S. Civil War, Confederate forces created pressure-activated anti-railroad mines which destroyed at least two trains..The Munroe or Neumann effect is the focusing of blast energy by a hollow or void Cut on a surface of an explosive..

VS-50 Mine..

The first anti-tank mines were improvised during the First World War as a counter measure against the first tanks introduced by the British towards the end of the war.. Initially they were nothing more than a buried high explosive shell or mortar bomb with its fuze upright..The Soviet Union began developing mines in the early 1920s, and in 1924 produced its first anti-tank mine, the EZ mine..The German Tellermine was a purpose-built anti-tank mine developed during the period between the first and second world wars..The Topfmines were a series of German circular minimum metal anti-tank blast mines that entered service with the German army in 1944, during the Second World War..The L9 Bar Mine is a large rectangular British anti-tank landmine..Off-route mines are designed to be effective when detonated next to a vehicle instead of underneath the vehicle.. They are useful in cases where the ground or surface is not suitable for burying or concealing a mine..During the Vietnam War, both 'regular' NVA and Viet Cong forces used AT mines..Conflict in southern Africa since the 60s have often involved Soviet, US or South African supported irregular armies or fighters engaged in guerrilla warfare..Explosively Formed Projectiles (EFPs) are one type of IED that was used in Iraq, but most "home made" IEDs are not employed in this manner..The VS-2.2 mine is found in Iraq and Kuwait, the SH-55 is found in Afghanistan..The Pope arrived in the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo, this afternoon at the start of a two-day visit to the war-torn city undeterred by the discovery of a plan to kill him..Just hours earlier Bosnian police found at least 20 anti-tank mines under a bridge on the road between the airport and the city - the route planned for the PopE and his entourage..

Warriors - Velcome to Vitez ..

The Grenade, Hand, Anti-tank, No. 75, also known as the Hawkins grenade was a British anti-tank hand grenade used during World War II..The M7 is a small, metal-cased U.S. anti-tank blast mine that was used during the Second World War.. It was based on the British Hawkins grenade..The mine has a thin olive green painted steel case, with a large hinged pressure plate..This plate transfers force onto the mine's fuze..The fuze is triggered by relatively low pressures, making the mine effective against trucks and cars..Additionally, the fuze may be sensitive enough to make it effective as an anti-personnel mine..The mine was normally deployed inside a cloth bag or sack to prevent rocks getting trapped under the hinged lid of the mine..The most common type of booby trap detonator is the M1 pull which is installed in the end fuse well.. This can be attached to a trip wire or a small stake underground for auntie-removal detonation..Weight: 2.2 kg..The MAPED F1 (France) uses a very complex electric firing system.. It is Basically actuated by a contact wire..., I only killed the car..As the air thickens, the water sours, and Even the bees honey takes on the Metallic taste of radioactivity..I only set the stage..You pull your own strings..Better to reign In Hell than serve in Heaven", is that it?..He wanted me here To Protect thee..My old man used to say, "life is like licking honey from a thorn"...
