    Dm31

    I am looking for pictures of the German DM31, also known as the FFV 028. Specifically I am looking for the markings on the mine itself, including the manufacturing markings.

    Does anyone have anything on this mine?

    Pz Abw VMi3 EX A is a fully INERT Version, issued to German Bundeswehr
    Pz = PANZER = Tank
    Abw= Abwehr = Anti
    V stands maybe for Versuch= Trial but could also be V for Verlege=laying
    Mi = Mine
    3 = Version No. in early time (not DM for Deutsches Modell = German Pattern, as later in use)
    EX = Exerzier = Dummy-Type = INERT
    A could be Pattern A (myabe subtype)

    Please chekout also that here the Swedish manufacturer FFV is marked and the look cannot hide ist roots.

    I am going to guess that the GEF is going to be a German Company, probably for the fill or fuze. But this is just a guess.
