    Ankertaumine DM11 question

    Hi all,
    on my last vacation I saw the Ankertaumine DM11 which is on display in the harbour of Grömitz, Germany. Its a permanent lease of an exercise version of the mine from the German mine-hunter boat Grömitz.

    I wonder if there are some details available on that type of mine? Maybe a cutaway drawing? Also I wonder if that type of mine is still in use? The russian M08 which damaged the Samuel Roberts in 1988 seems to be the last case of such a mine causing damage to a ship?

    Thanks!

    The Ankertaumine DM11 is still in the active inventory of the German Navy. It can be deployed by minesweepers and minehunters. The corvettes also have a mining capacity, if outfitted accordingly.

    The mine has an operating depth from 5 to 250 meters. Main explosive charge is 38 kg.
    Any Live or recovered ordnance shown in my posts has been dealt with accordingly by trained EOD personnel
