    I know Kip, he has been at the museum there for many years. But what was the question?

    German AT/AV mines, the designation escapes me at the moment, AT-1? From the 70s-80s.

    Excellent. I thought so. May I ask for a few more detailed pictures?

    They look like AT1 mines. 15.000 Rockets with each containing 8 mines were purchased from 1978-1980 for the German Bundeswehr LARS Systems https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light_..._Rocket_System
    Only a few years later the newer AT2 mine and corresponding rockets were developed

    It is always amazing which rare items you can organize for the Bombatorium
