    According to this book

    KPOM.jpg
    the mine is called POM-2 and the cluster KPOM2S

    Here is a drawing of the POM-2 from "Инженерные боеприпасы. Руководство по материальной части и применению. Кн. 6"

    Only POM-2, no POM-2S! All POM-2 when developed had self-destruction mechanism.
    Name of instruction translates next:
    Anti-personel fragmentation mine POM-2. Block KPOM-2 WITH (WITH, but not KPOM-2S!) anti-personel fragmentation mines POM-2.

    What is the difference between POM-2 and POM-2S ?
    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by EOD personnel .

    No differences, because do not exists POM-2S. POM-2 has self-destruction mechanism and does not need letter S in the end, like POM-1S or PFM-1S (because exist versions POM-1 and PFM-1 without that mechanism).

    Ok, thanks a lot.
    So a mistake in our French doc.
    But sometimes we can see ПОМ-2-С on this kind of ammo ?

    It is a mistake in a lot of docs
    Yes, I saw that photo (only one photo!) with 'POM-2S'. I have two questions - who made that photo and where? And the second - why mine does not look like POM-2?
    Exist POM-2R mines without self-destruction mechanism, but it is POM-2R, not POM-2.

    DJH-Please let me know that you are about to tackle one of the cleverest infernal devices around! Ideal for your skill, as all mechanical-Can't think how they assemble the fuze, with a tiny ball in the bottom. The only drawing of the fuze seems to have disappeared from the Web. I just cannot fathom how the plunger passes through a diaphragm at top.
    Think the perforated uprighting paddles could be to produce a greater drag when passing though a layer of water, so producing a larger uprighting force. The hand launcher, with the pull string igniter, has a strange little plunger sticking out of the base, to show that the mine has been pushed far enough down the barrel.(Felt in dark, rather than looking at marking on mine case?) I can only think that the loaded launcher is supplied with the mine high up in the barrel, so, in case of a dump fire, the friction igniter would inflame, but the mine would be too far away to be launched.
    Just hope that your Dremel doesn't melt with the intense use of late!
    Thanks for your regular doses of excitement!
    Martin.
