    POM-2 Variants

    I am having a hard time verifying something on Wikipedia (yeah I know).

    The POM-2-SIP-2R and POM-2-SIP-2P are POM-2 variants found on the German Wikipedia page.

    Does anyone have something on these versions that isn't Wikipedia? I would like to verify their existence, and if possible find some good data on them.

    See: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/POM-2

    Hi Joe,
    i don't know if you understand German. It just says in the article that these 2 versions, which have to be manually laid, come without the normal pullwires. A seismic detector is instead connected to a group of mines. These detectors are sensitive to human footstep noise. If I remember right, somebody here already posted a russian description of this fuzing-system some time ago. It has a sensitively fuzed destruct charge attached.
    Regards,
    Bellifortis.

    This attachment someone posted here some time ago.

    I understood the German. I am looking for something outside of Wikipedia that says these are real. Wikipedia isn't a good source of information. It usually points me in the right direction when I am looking for something, but these don't have any citations that tell me where the person who posted the information found it. I was hoping maybe someone here might have a book or manual that states these variants, which would tell me they actually exist.
