    Russian Mine

    Does this mine actually exist? It has no nomenclature in the TM, and quite frankly I wouldn't be surprised if it was not real.

    Any ideas?

    Hallo,
    As @Spgr30 has rightly said already, this mine is an early WW2 russian example. There were. at that time, many different minetypes, according to the materials at hand. This one is a simple, well thought out design. not only the russian army used and developed them, but also the "illegal combatants", as the US call them, fighting from the deep forests.
    regards,
    Bellifortis.
