    T-52 Antipersonnel Mine, U.S.A.

    All I could find on this was that it appeared in the DoD Appropriations 1966, Vol. 3, p.313.

    If you know which M-version this turned into please let us know. If you have any information regarding technical details, development and production, please also share. Thanks.

    It may also be mentioned as T52 in documents.

    P.S. What would SSS mean in the context of the development of a munition by the way?

    Would anyone know what the T-52 later became?
    I know T stands for test, XM for experimental and M is the standardized and ready munition, e.g. M38.

    Apparently the T52 may have had a method of electrochemical or chemical self-sterilization.

    See p.64 here: https://books.google.de/books?id=Tux...&q=T52&f=false
