Unknown Mine British ?


Well-Known Member
Hi, Could anyone identify this mine, The mine comes in 3 parts and the base pattern reminds me of the Mk 7's base made at ROF Nottingham. It weighs 6.6kg as it stands.

It's just UITM-60 (УИТМ-60) according to Russian (Soviet-era) manuals, so the initial hyphen spacer isn't present. A diagram from a 1976 Russian manual is below

Uses the UIMV-60 (УИМВ-60) fuze, which isn't present in the images.

The UITM-60 is designed to emulate the TM-57 (ТМ -57) anti-tank blast mine.

Thank you to you all for the information Most helpful, I have now started to free off the springs with some Duck oil and will probably coat in wax and leave it as it is.
