    Estonian Mine

    Does anyone have anymore information on this TM-34 mine?

    http://www.lexpev.nl/minesandcharges...onia/tm34.html

    I am interested in the fuze and explosive weights. Kind of an interesting item.

    Does anyone know how this mine was marked? It doesn't seem like it had any.

    I had a minty Estonian mine, but it had no markings - not stamped or ink markings.

    What I understand from text, it was used also as a hand granade and the fuze belonged to that.

    Hello,

    Estonian "Tomson" mines TM-34 and TM-37 are often confused. Same shape but different in dimensions.

    Yes TM-37 could be used as a (big) handgrenade with a specific handle.

    TM-37 : diam 230mm, HE 1.5kg
    TM-34 : diam 190mm, HE 0.97kg


    Regards
    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by EOD personnel .
