    Acoustic Detector Set 42

    only recently was I able to read TM-223C (1952) German Mine Warfare Equipment. Even now I do not know any source where to download this very, very interesting historical manual. The one about russian equipment, in this series, is available online as PDF from many sources. Here, for the first time I read about the acoustic detecting set that was used together with a command-detonating set for whole mine-lines. Apparently the acoustic sentry was so sensitive, that you could hear a man approaching from a few yards away. Each sentry was coupled to a mine near it, so that every mine could be detonated singly by a switch-panel. attached are fotos from the manual. Up until now I only knew the US-acoustic detectors that were dropped by planes in Vietnam.
