The mine PMN very dangerous because presure by time a little down hir cover and she have been very sensetive on any presure.The mine PMA2 is not great problem take off,but very big problem her searching,because of she has hemical firing devices with metal detonator.The mine Mi AP DV 59 has the same hemical firing device,but with plastic detonator,and for easy searching her used metal detector ring on her top,but this ring could be take off.
Is better way touch groung by hand,and after this by knife or for probing(with angle 15-30) or(is better) for digging out.
You can used hard cover of roads,trunks of wood,piece of destroing building,big rock for pass across minefield(sometimes for jumping) but is better way in any case work of detector,whith help of wich you can find sure pass between mines.
For searching wire of frug mines you can used hand lower her to ground and wrap up sleeve.By this way you can feel by scin this wire.

http://tewton.narod.ru/mines-2/vs-50-3.jpg
This mine very often is founding in Iraq because of as Iran-iraq war as Gulf war
It is the information, offered by Colin King(Jane guide mines).
Description
VS-50 is a resilient plastic-cased scatterable Anti-Personnel (AP) blast mine. The mine is constructed from three main assemblies: the top and bottom screw onto a central section housing the fuze mechanism. The black neoprene pressure pad, reinforced with either a metal or plastic plate (specified by the customer), seals the cavity in the top section of the mine. In the central section, the fuze has a spring-loaded striker retained by a bar on a pivoted shutter. There is also a small inflatable bladder and a red plastic safety pin to prevent the shutter from pivoting. The base section holds the main charge and has a central threaded detonator well. During transit a blue plug is fitted; this is replaced by the body-coloured stab-sensitive M41 detonator assembly during arming. An electronic anti-handling version of this mine (VS-50 EO3) was also produced. The mine was manufactured in olive green and sand colours, with other options available.

Operation
During initiation, once the safety pin has been removed, a load applied to the pressure plate compresses the striker spring against the retaining bar until the shutter is allowed to move sideways and release the striker. A steady application of load also allows the pressure within the mine to equalise via a small bleed-hole between the top and bottom sections. However, when the fuze experiences sudden overpressure, the small bladder inflates to hold the shutter in place. The striker spring is compressed but the striker cannot be released so, when the pressure passes, the fuze resets. This pneumatic function gives the mine a high degree of resistance to shock and explosive countermeasures.

Neutralisation
The mine can be neutralised by replacing the plastic safety pin.

Disarming
The detonator assembly is unscrewed from the base to disarm the mine.
Specifications
Weight 185 g Height 45 mm
Diameter 90 mm Explosive type RDX
Explosive weight 43g Operating pressure 10 kg
General information
Used in Angola, Ecuador, Iraq, Kuwait, Peru, Rwanda, Zimbabwe
Emplacement Manual or scattered from ground vehicles or helicopters
Detectability Easily detectable when fitted with the metal reinforcing plate, otherwise very difficult
Anti-handling None with VS-50; however, an electronic anti-handling version,VS-50 EO3, was also manufactured
Blast resistance Extremely resistant to overpressure
Cross reference Produced under licence by Singapore as the SPM-1. Very similar in appearance to the Italian TS-50 (see earlier entry)
Manufacturer Formerly manufactured by Valsella Meccanotecnica SpA, this mine is no longer produced
Notes
A safety cap and an air-drag extractable safety pin are available for use with scattering systems. A practice (smoke) mine and a training mine were also made. The mine will function either way up and can be used underwater to a depth of 1 m. The VS-50 mines used in Kuwait contained a metal reinforcing plate and therefore were easily detectable; none of the electronic variants was used. Italy has banned the production, transfer and use of all AP mines.

Cut off Italian antitank mine T.C.-6.0(there is the same mine T.C.-3.6 with less weight of explosive)
It is the information, offered by Colin King.
Description
TC/6 is a minimum-metal Anti-Tank (AT) blast mine. The mine is composed of a main charge and central booster in the plastic casing of the mine body and a fuze assembly, which screws onto the top. Another version, TC/3.6, uses the same system with a smaller charge (see previous entry). In both designations, the figures denote the mine's explosive content in kilograms. The fuze has a pressure plate which encloses an air filled cavity; beneath this is a strong plastic bulkhead which protects the fuze mechanism. There is no mechanical link between the pressure plate and the fuze mechanism, but the bulkhead has a very small bleed-hole in it. The mechanism consists of a spring-loaded striker retained against an outer collar by a single steel retaining ball. Above this collar and below the bleed-hole is a flexible diaphragm. The mechanism cavity is vented into two round recesses in the base of the fuze; these are lined with a membrane and fitted with a protective grill. The detonator assembly screws into the base of the fuze, replaced by an inert plastic version during transit. The heavily ribbed mine body, which is fitted with a rope carrying handle, is produced in olive green and sand colours, with other options available.
Operation
When a load is applied to the pressure plate, air from the upper cavity is forced through the small bleed-hole. This distorts the diaphragm which bears on the collar, compressing the striker spring until the retaining ball escapes into a recess. The striker is released onto the detonator assembly to initiate the mine. When the mine is subjected to rapid overpressure, the air does not have time to move through the small hole to actuate the fuze; this makes the mine very resistant to explosive countermeasures. The substantial blast will destroy running gear, and may penetrate the hull of a heavily armoured vehicle.
Neutralisation
This mine cannot be neutralised.
Disarming
To disarm the mine, the fuze assembly is unscrewed from the mine body and the detonator assembly unscrewed from the base of the fuze
Weight 9.6 kg Height 185 mm
Diameter 270 mm Explosive type Composition B
Explosive weight 6 kg Operating pressure 180-310 kg
General information
Used in Afghanistan, Chad, Ecuador
Emplacement Manual or mechanical
Detectability This mine is very difficult to detect
Anti-handling None
Blast resistance Extremely resistant to overpressure
Cross reference Also produced in Egypt (as TC-6) and Portugal. TC/6 is a larger version of the TC/3.6
Manufacturer Tecnovar Italiana SpA
Training versions of the mine are manufactured. TCE/6, the electronic version of TC/6, is outwardly identical but contains circuitry to enable remote arming and disarming

Example of mine with M-S effekt.This is PT-Mi-PK.
This is information of Jane Guide Mines:
Description
PD Mi-PK is an off-route anti-vehicle mine with five Misznay Schardin warheads, each capable of defeating up to 20 mm of armour. This makes it suitable for the attack of soft-skinned or lightly armoured vehicles.
The mine consists of a metal box containing the main charge, one side of which houses the five circular dished metal plates. The mine is set up on a steel frame to one side of a route and is aimed using a rudimentary sight on the body. It may then be set up for victim-operation, or command detonated by electric cable from a position up to 50 m away. In the victim-operated mode the mine can be initiated either by a contact cable laid across the route, or by a tripwire suspended approximately 700 mm above the ground.
As the mine detonates, the five explosively formed projectiles have a dispersion of 10 to 14 m at an effective range of 30 m. PD Mi-PK is packed in a wooden case containing the mine body, stand, firing device, canvas packaging and a camouflage net. A training version is available which emits a loud report and smoke on actuation.
Specifications
Weight:
(mine and stand) 10.1 kg
(complete set, packed) 33 kg
Dimensions of mine body: 401 x 125 x 82 mm
Height with stand: 555 mm
Weight of explosive: 8.5 kg

This is information of Jane Guide Mines:
Description
The XM93 Wide Area Munition was designed to meet a US Army requirement for an improved counter-mobility weapon. Unlike conventional mines that require a target vehicle to run directly over them for warhead activation, the WAM is capable of attacking armoured vehicles or heavy trucks that move within a 360є, 100 m radius.
Each WAM consists of a ground launcher, erected and supported by spring-loaded legs, and a sublet (similar to the Skeet munition deployed by the US Air Force SFW cluster bomb) which is launched by a gas generator into a rapidly spinning motion over the target. The ground launcher contains seismic and acoustic sensors that detect, classify, track and engage targets as they move in the mine's vicinity. If all attack criteria are satisfied, the launcher swivels in azimuth and tilts in elevation to aim the sublet's trajectory.
An infra-red sensor on the sublet searches the ground in a near circular pattern looking for the target. When pre-established target detection and aiming point criteria have been satisfied, the sublet's microcomputer initiates the Explosively Formed Penetrator (EFP) warhead which fires a high-velocity, heavy metal slug (450 g of tantalum), capable of defeating most targets' top armour.
The mine under current development is hand-emplaced, and can be activated remotely, within 60 days, over a one-way datalink by the M131 Modular Mine Pack System (MOPMS - see entry under Minelaying equipment) remote-control unit. Possible future delivery variants include the M139 Volcano multiple mine delivery system (ibid), the Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS), and the Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS).
A spin-off from the WAM programme is the Air Deliverable Acoustic Sensor (ADAS). This uses the major non-explosive components of the WAM to detect, classify and track vehicles for battlefield intelligence and targeting purposes.

This mine very often is founding in Iraq because of as Iran-iraq war as Gulf war
It is the information, offered by Colin King(Jane guide mines).
Description
VS-50 is a resilient plastic-cased scatterable Anti-Personnel (AP) blast mine. The mine is constructed from three main assemblies: the top and bottom screw onto a central section housing the fuze mechanism. The black neoprene pressure pad, reinforced with either a metal or plastic plate (specified by the customer), seals the cavity in the top section of the mine. In the central section, the fuze has a spring-loaded striker retained by a bar on a pivoted shutter. There is also a small inflatable bladder and a red plastic safety pin to prevent the shutter from pivoting. The base section holds the main charge and has a central threaded detonator well. During transit a blue plug is fitted; this is replaced by the body-coloured stab-sensitive M41 detonator assembly during arming. An electronic anti-handling version of this mine (VS-50 EO3) was also produced. The mine was manufactured in olive green and sand colours, with other options available.

Operation
During initiation, once the safety pin has been removed, a load applied to the pressure plate compresses the striker spring against the retaining bar until the shutter is allowed to move sideways and release the striker. A steady application of load also allows the pressure within the mine to equalise via a small bleed-hole between the top and bottom sections. However, when the fuze experiences sudden overpressure, the small bladder inflates to hold the shutter in place. The striker spring is compressed but the striker cannot be released so, when the pressure passes, the fuze resets. This pneumatic function gives the mine a high degree of resistance to shock and explosive countermeasures.

Neutralisation
The mine can be neutralised by replacing the plastic safety pin.

Disarming
The detonator assembly is unscrewed from the base to disarm the mine.
Specifications
Weight 185 g Height 45 mm
Diameter 90 mm Explosive type RDX
Explosive weight 43g Operating pressure 10 kg
General information
Used in Angola, Ecuador, Iraq, Kuwait, Peru, Rwanda, Zimbabwe
Emplacement Manual or scattered from ground vehicles or helicopters
Detectability Easily detectable when fitted with the metal reinforcing plate, otherwise very difficult
Anti-handling None with VS-50; however, an electronic anti-handling version,VS-50 EO3, was also manufactured
Blast resistance Extremely resistant to overpressure
Cross reference Produced under licence by Singapore as the SPM-1. Very similar in appearance to the Italian TS-50 (see earlier entry)
Manufacturer Formerly manufactured by Valsella Meccanotecnica SpA, this mine is no longer produced
Notes
A safety cap and an air-drag extractable safety pin are available for use with scattering systems. A practice (smoke) mine and a training mine were also made. The mine will function either way up and can be used underwater to a depth of 1 m. The VS-50 mines used in Kuwait contained a metal reinforcing plate and therefore were easily detectable; none of the electronic variants was used. Italy has banned the production, transfer and use of all AP mines

Jane's Mines and Mine Clearance 1999-00



PM-79 anti-personnel mine
Description
The PM-79 Anti-Personnel (AP) mine is externally similar to the Russian PMN, although it is generally smaller overall and may be laid mechanically or manually.
PM-79 uses the same arming principle as the PMN: a side-mounted firing pin is held in the safe position by a safety pin. When the safety pin is removed as the mine is emplaced, a wire on the spring-loaded striker cuts its way through a lead *****. This provides an arming delay of about two minutes at a temperature of +40şC or up to 240 minutes at -20şC. At the end of that period the firing pin moves forward under spring pressure until stopped by a centrally located post. This post holds the striker back and the detonator out of line until pressure is applied to the dished metal plate on top of the mine body; the plate is covered by a thin rubber diaphragm. Pressure applied to the edge of the mine distorts the plate and lifts the central post. This raises the stab-sensitive detonator into line while releasing the striker into it, initiating the main charge.
The unusual fuze mechanism makes PM-79 resistant to explosive mine countermeasures; it is claimed to resist sympathetic detonation from AP mines over 200 mm away and Anti-Tank (AT) mines over 1.5 m away.

Specifications

Weight: 255 g
Diameter:
(max) 100 mm
(across base) 88.2 mm
Height: 50 mm
Weight of main charge: 78.3 g
Operating pressure: 50-250 kg
Operating temperature range: -50 to +50şC

The reason of success of the Iraq mojaheds is in limitation of the American command who are not admitting freedom of the initiative in units that is clear but the main thing of limitation of the American administration who has decided to shift the responsibility for conducting war on unprepared local security forces. Coalition armies having entrusted key questions of protection of ways of communication and the control over settlements to the local allies, have cast the country into chaos. Iraq divided between three main, hostile to each other communities: Sunits, Shiits and Kurdish, was plus to it torn by struggle of parties and tribes, and also naturally by struggle of local clans, and thus armed forces were the main field of struggle between them. If to this also to add departmental dissociation between army (ICDC), National Guards, a state security and usual police it is easy to understand that mojaheds of various movements, thousands deserted here from neighbouring countries, including from Saudi Arabia and Iran felt here like a duck to water and imposing the fights upon enemies in settlements, increasing embitternment of local inhabitants against western white-faced giaours, thus also pursuing an overall objective in destruction of those in a local society who support the USA and their ally forces. Though the coalition Air Forces supervised all deserted Iraq, badly adapted to guerrilla war, according to the above mentioned policy on roads of Iraq there practically weren t well equipped check points, and coalition armies were engaged of self-protection only. Different equipments of local formations, who sometimes looked like the robbers of Ali-Baba, could not struggle of course effectively with mojaheds. Everybody is surprised at inability of the last ones to start large-scale mine war but probably it was caused by bad organization. Certainly using the correct organization of service on check points, equipped the last ones with a double gate, with the protected site of road between them, with high walls protecting from sniper fire, using dogs to check the vehicles with explosives and also to patrol (though when the weather is hot dog are not applicable) , and organize reconnaissance and striking forces for search and destruction of the enemy in a wide zone around of protected objects, it would change the situation for the better.However it is necessary to take into account that patrols, convoys, and also the various civil organizations would remain vulnerable enough by all means.

In Israel, despite on the big practice, and they could not reliably secure a society against condemned men-terrorists, and the most effective means were in active search and destruction of the enemy leaders and organizers by special force operations.

PzH2000 155mm ammonation



SMArt 155 sensor-fuzed munition for the Army

Artillery Forces need to match changes in national and international defense policy; in particular the increased demand for rapid reaction forces with effective and affordable equipment. The main focus for the artillery is the ability for precision attack of static and moving armored and high value targets.

With PzH2000, or comparable weapon systems, Artillery Forces possess the latest technology and highly efficient firing platforms for combined forces engagement. SMArt supplies the performance required in the target area to the artillery system. By this system, effectiveness and flexibility of the Artillery Forces are significantly increased.

http://www.rheinmetall-detec.de/img/SMART%20SUBMUNMF.jpg

SMArt is a highly effective and very robust fire and forget artillery shell, carrying two autonomous, intelligent and high performance submunitions to defeat any kind of stationary and moving armoured targets in any environment. For the first time SMArt provides the Artillery Forces with the capability to effectively engage pin-point targets at very long ranges.

A single volley of SMArt projectiles is capable of successfully defeating stationary or moving target scenarios containing main battle tanks as well as high value mobile targets like self propelled howitzers, armoured personnel carriers, command vehicles as well as rocket launchers and air defense units.

Shoot-and-scoot tactics and fast availability for new missions further increase the combat value of the artillery assets. In brief, SMArt significantly improves weapon efficiency and provides a new dimension for the artillery. The very short time needed to complete a firing mission enables the friendly forces to largely prevent hostile target acquisition, thereby increasing their own safety.

Principle of Function

The round can be fired from any 155 mm artillery gun by using the regular firing procedures. When fired from a 52 caliber gun, the projectile achieves a maximum range of up to 27 km. The use of automatic loaders has been proven.

After having reached the target area in the normal ballistic way, the projectile time fuze initiates the ejection of 2 autonomous sub-munitions which begin a stable rotating descent phase. The multi-mode sensor system scans the target area by an inward spiral motion.

Using a combination of 3 physically independent sensors consisting of radar + radiometer + infrared sensors, the system is in the position to detect armored vehicles, reject any kind of false targets, and initiate the warhead for target fighting.

Targets are engaged in the top attack by an explosively formed heavy metal projectile (EFP) penetrating the armour by its highly kinetic energy. The unmatched performance of the SMArt EFP leads to the destruction of any kind of today's and future armoured vehicles, including special reactive armour.

If there is no target within the sub-munition footprint, two independent and redundant self-destruction mechanisms make sure that no duds remain on the battlefield. The pin-point accuracy in combination with the drastically reduced amount of ammunition for successful accomplishment of a fire order provides the additionally significant benefit of minimizing collateral damage in urban areas.

Status

SMArt – German BWB Serial Production successfully completed!

The procurement contract concerning the artillery round SMArt 155 with the German BWB was successfully completed by delivery of lot # 14. The last Lot Acceptance Test of a total of 14 was effected in October 2003. All tests were conducted with great success, showing the reliability and effectiveness of SMArt 155 with a technical function close to 100 percent.

The first lot for Greece has been delivered in November 2003. Delivery of the 2nd lot is scheduled for 2005.

In December 2001 a contract was concluded with Switzerland for the production of 2,000 rounds. Technology transfer and successful qualification of a Swiss sub-contractor allowed successful completion of Pilot Lot Tests as well as the first lot which could be provided for delivery. As of March 2004 more than 10,000 operational rounds were produced, delivered and fielded.

Testing for "Release for use" in the US artillery is under contract to be performed in YUMA Proving Ground in August or 2004. In the UK, SMArt 155 is part of the IFPA study (Indirect Fire Precision Attack). Furthermore, SMArt 155 was successfully tested and qualified for the British weapon system AS90.

These compliance tests show the capability of SMArt 155 to be used in different weapon systems, thus emphasizing the significance of this round for the artillery on an international level. Latest additional design margin tests successfully passed overpressure conditions up to 4,600 bar. In the meantime, product improvements like extended footprint and reprogrammable software have already been qualified and introduced.

SMArt 155 is continuously improved and ready for future requirements.

The development of a new round, the 30mm Air Burst Munition (ABM), by Oerlikon Contraves Pyrotec, is complete and under a schedule of tests and qualification trials for entry into service around 2005.The ABM round (173mm long, 30mm diameter) contains an electronic timer, an ejection charge and 135 cylinder-shaped tungsten alloy bars or projectiles. The electronic timer is programmed by inductive coupling through a device installed in the muzzle of the cannon. The timer initiates the ejection charge which releases and disperses the tungsten projectiles before impact with the target.

The MK-20 Rockeye is a free-fall, unguided cluster weapon designed to kill tanks and armored vehicles. The system consists of a clamshell dispenser, a mechanical MK-339 timed fuze, and 247 dual-purpose armor-piercing shaped-charge bomblets. The bomblet weighs 1.32 pounds and has a 0.4-pound shaped-charge warhead of high explosives, which produces up to 250,000 psi at the point of impact, allowing penetration of approximately 7.5 inches of armor. Rockeye is most efficiently used against area targets requiring penetration to kill. Rockeye (antitank cluster bomb Mk 20), dropped from an A-4 Skyhawk, fielded in 1968 and still in service, Rockeye dispenses 247 shaped-charge antitank bomblets Mk 118,this dispenser SUU-64 is also used in the Gator air-delivered mine system. During Desert Storm US Marines used the weapon extensively, dropping 15,828 of the 27,987 total Rockeyes against armor, artillery, and antipersonnel targets. The remainder were dropped by Air Force (5,345) and Navy (6,814) aircraft.

The CBU-52, -58 and -71 all use SUU-30 dispensers, a metal cylinder divided longitudinally. One-half contains a strong back section that provides for forced ejection and sway-bracing. The two halves lock together. Four cast aluminum fins are attached at a 9~degree angle to the aft end of the dispenser and are canted 1.25 degrees to impart spin-stabilized flight. When released from the aircraft, the arming wire/lanyard initiates the fuze arming and delay cycle. At fuze function, the fuze booster ignites and unlocks the forward end of the dispenser. Ram air action on the dispenser forces the two halves apart, instantaneously dispensing the payload and allowing the bomblets to spin-arm and self-dispense. A total of 17,831 were expended during the Gulf War.

The BLU-61/B is a spherical, grenade-like anti-personnel fragmentation bomblet about the size of a tennis ball. The CBU-49 carries 217 submunitions, while the CBU-52 carries 254.

http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/dumb/blu61-softball-s.jpg

The BLU-42/B is a scatterable antipersonnel fragmentation mine produced by the United States. This munition is a scatterable mine delivered by the United States Air Force. This mine was used extensively in the Vietnam War and has since been exploited and copied by the former Soviet Union. The mine has six spring-loaded tripwires that are expelled from the mine after it makes contact with the ground. The mine also has an antidisturbance feature and a self-destruct feature. The mine is filled with 71 grams of Composition B explosive. The Russian version of this mine is the POM-1S antipersonnel fragmentation

The BLU-43/B is a scatterable blast antipersonnel mine produced by the United States and delivered by the Air Force. This mine was used in the Vietnam War and has since been exploited and copied by the former Soviet Union. The mine is nicknamed the DRAGONTOOTH. The system uses a liquid explosive and a hydrostatic fuze. The Russian version is the PFM-1 and PFM-1S (Butterfly mines).

http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/dumb/_blu43b.gif

Gator consists of two companion systems. The Air Force CBU-89/B is a 1000-pound class cluster weapon using the SUU-64/B Tactical Munitions Dispenser (TMD). The TMD is the same general configuration used for the CBU-87/B Combined Effects Munition. This commonality allows for high-rate, low-cost production of the dispenser. The Navy CBU-78/B is a 500-pound class cluster weapon that uses the Mk7 Rockeye dispenser. Rockeye has been in high-rate production for many years; the Mk7 dispenser is also a low-cost item.

Both systems contain a mix of BLU-91 /B antitank (AT) and BLU-92/B antipersonnel (AP) mines -- 72 AT and 22 AP for the CBU-89/B; 45 AT and 15 AP for the CBU-78/B. Commonality of mines for both systems also contributes to high-rate, low-cost production. The BLU-91 /B AT mine is the heart of the Gator system. Microelectronics in each mine detect targets, discriminate armored vehicles, and detonate the mine when the target reaches the most vulnerable approach point. A Misznay-Schardin explosive charge defeats the belly armor of most vehicles. The BLU-92/B AP mine serves to discourage minefield clearing. Upon activation, the AP mine explosion sends high-velocity fragments in a horizontal plane over a wide area.
Both mines have a programmable self-destruct feature which permits the battlefield commander to control the timing of a counterattack or defensive maneuver. The self-destruct time is set just prior to aircraft takeoff using a simple selector switch on the dispenser. This feature permits a high degree of tactical flexibility during combat operations.

The CBU-87 is a 1,000-pound, Combined Effects Munition (CEM) for attacking soft target areas with detonating bomblets. The CBU-87 CEM, an all-purpose, air-delivered cluster weapons system, consists of a SW-65 Tactical Munitions Dispenser (TMD) with an optional FZU-39 proximity sensor. The BLU-97/B Combined Effects Bomb (CEB), effective against armor, personnel and material, contains a shaped charge, scored steel casing and zirconium ring for anti-armor, fragmentation and incendiary capability. The bomblet case is made of scored steel designed to break into approximately 300 preformed ingrain fragments for defeating light armor and personnel. A total of 202 of these bomblets are loaded in each dispenser enabling a single payload attack against a variety and wide area coverage. The footprint for the CBU-87 is approximatel 200 meters by 400 meters. The body of the submunition is cylindrical in shape, approximately 20 centimeters long, and has a 6 centimeter diameter. It is bright yellow when new.

The CBU-52, loaded with 220 antimaterial, antipersonnel bomblets, weighs 785 pounds and can be used with a variety of proximity fuzes or the mechanical MK-339 timed fuze. The submunition is a 3.5-inch spherical bomblet weighing 2.7 pounds with a 0.65-pound high-explosive warhead.

The CBU-52, -58 and -71 all use SUU-30 dispensers, a metal cylinder divided longitudinally. One-half contains a strong back section that provides for forced ejection and sway-bracing. The two halves lock together. Four cast aluminum fins are attached at a 9~degree angle to the aft end of the dispenser and are canted 1.25 degrees to impart spin-stabilized flight.

CBU-24/B Cluster Bomb filled by BLU-26-B Anti-material/Anti-personnel bomblets


http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/dumb/cbu24b.jpg

The CBU-97 is a 1,000-pound class weapon containing sensor-fused submunitions for attacking armor. The SFW is the centerpiece of the Air Force concept of operations for engaging an adversary's main armored force in the "halt" or "hold" phase of a Major Regional Contingency, in which the USAF would disrupt and stop an attack, providing time for other combatant forces to reinforce to the theater.
The primary components of this 1,000 pound class weapon are the SUU-66/B Tactical Munitions Dispenser (TMD), 10 BLU-108/B submunitions, and 40 "hockey puck" shaped skeet infrared sensing projectiles. The weapon is designed to be employed from US Air Force tactical aircraft from altitudes between 200 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) to 20,000 feet Mean Sea Level (MSL) at speeds between 250 to 650 knots. Each CBU-97/B can cover an area of about 500 feet by 1,200 feet. Test results indicate that CBU-97 submunitions have a propensity to cluster and that impact patterns are unevenly distributed. This is contrary to the uniform distribution assumption employed in the Joint Munitions Effectiveness Manual (JMEM). Because of the clustering effect, it appears that JMEM overestimates damage and more weapons may be required to destroy the target then predicted.


The Sensor Fuzed Weapon [SFW] is an unpowered, top attack, wide area, cluster munition, designed to achieve multiple kills per aircraft pass against enemy armor and support vehicles. After release, the TMD opens and dispenses the ten submunitions which are parachute stabilized. Each of the 10 BLU-108/B submunitions contains four armor-penetrating projectiles with infrared sensors to detect armored targets. At a preset altitude sensed by a radar altimeter, a rocket motor fires to spin the submunition and initiate an ascent. The submunition then releases its four projectiles, which are lofted over the target area. The projectile's sensor detects a vehicle's infrared signature, and an explosively formed penetrator fires at the heat source. If no target is detected after a period of time, the projectiles automatically after a preset time interval, causing damage to material and personnel.

As of 1991 the Air Force planned to use the I-2000 penetrating bomb for attacking runways rather than develop the new DAACM weapon. With the collapse of the Warsaw Pact, there were few reinforced runways on the US target list, and the existing Durandals were regarded as adequate for standard thickness runways, while the I-2000 can penetrate any conceivable runway. Moreover, it is already in the inventory and needs no development program.

http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/dumb/daacm.jpg

The CBU-59 APAM an antipersonnel, antimaterial weapon developed in the 1970s as a successor to Rockeye. It uses the same Rockeye dispenser, but has 717 smaller BLU-77 bomblets fitted into the case. In addition to its armor-piercing effect, it also has antipersonnel fragmentation and incendiary features. One hundred and eight-six were delivered during the Gulf war.

http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/dumb/cbu-59b.gif

The CBU-58 is loaded with 650 bomblets. These bomblets contain 5-gram titanium pellets, making them incendiary and useful against flammable targets.

The CBU-71 is loaded with 650 BLU-68/B incendiary submunitions which use titanium pellets as the incendiary agent. The bomblet has two separate kill mechanisms, one fragmentation, the other incendiary. Both incorporate a time delay fuze, which detonates at random times after impact.

CBU-24/B Cluster Bomb filled by BLU26-B Anti-material/Anti-personnel bomblets

The CBU-75 Sadeye is a cluster bomb unit filled with 1,800 one- pound bomblets such as the BLU-26. This submunition is a cast steel shell with aerodynamic vanes and 0.7 pound of TNT in which 600 razor-sharp steel shards are imbedded. The BLU-26 can be equipped with fuses to explode upon impact, several yards above ground, or some time after landing. It is lethal up to about 40 feet. The CBU-75 has a total lethal area more than double that of a standard 2,000-pound bomb, the equivalent of 157 football fields.

Mark I think this is china produced and were used by albanian in war against macedonian forces.Albanian set AT mine by one on road where excpected pass of macedonian vehichles

How do I tell the difference between the chinese version and the russian one ?

China mine Type 59 is copy of TMN 46 and different only color
The TM-46 and TMN-46 are two antitank mines that differ only in that the TMN-46 has an additional fuze well on the bottom of the mine for ****ytrapping. The TMN-46 is ****ytrapped using a MUV-type pull fuze by connecting the pull pin to a fixed object (stake) under the mine. Other than this difference, the mines consist of a sheet-metal body with carrying handle; the explosive charge, fuze(s), and booster(s); a diaphragm to separate the pressure plate and explosive charge; and a side-mounted filler plug. The pressure plate is stepped to facilitate crushing. The two-****ged safety pin acts as a bridge and a positive safety protecting the diaphragm. With the safety pin removed, pressure is transmitted to and collapses the diaphragm. As the fuze housing is forced down, the striker spring is compressed. At a point, the retaining ball is released into a cavity between the striker housing and the fuze well. The spring-driven striker then explodes the mine by impinging on the detonator. On the bottom of the TM-46 mines there are six strengthening impression ribs radiating outward from the bottom center. On the TMN-46, there are five; the ****ytrap fuze well is in the place of the sixth rib.,

The following text does not refer to spherical bomblets in particular, but some principles of cluster systems can be learned from it.
http://www.ordnance.org/cluster_bombs.htm



BLU-61/B.
The BLU-61/B is a spherical, grenade-like anti-pers[on]nel fragmentation bomblet about the size of a tennis ball. The CBU-49 carries 217 submunitions, while the CBU-52 carries 254.[3]

The CBU-52, loaded with 220 antimaterial, antiperso[n]nel bomblets, weighs 785 pounds and can be used with a variety of proximity fuzes or the mechanical MK-339 timed fuze. The submunition is a 3.5-inch spherical bomblet weighing 2.7 pounds with a 0.65-pound high-explosive warhead.[4]

The CBU-58 is loaded with 650 bomblets. These [BLU-63/B] bomblets contain 5- gram titanium pellets, making them incendiary and useful against flammable targets.

The CBU-52, -58 and -71 all use SUU-30 dispensers, a metal cylinder divided longitudinally. One-half contains a strong back section that provides for forced ejection and sway-bracing. The two halves lock together. Four cast aluminum fins are attached at a 9~degree angle to the aft end of the dispenser and are canted 1.25 degrees to impart spin-stabilized flight. [b]When released from the aircraft, the arming wire/lanyard initiates the fuze arming and delay cycle. At fuze function, the fuze booster ignites and unlocks the forward end of the dispenser. Ram air action on the dispenser forces the two halves apart, instantaneously dispensing the payload and allowing the bomblets to spin-arm and self-dispense. A total of 17,831 were expended during the Gulf War.[44]

Manufacturers estimated a 10% failure rate for cluster bomblets, “but it is now generally agreed that the actual rate was 30% because the ordnance was often not dropped in accordance with manufacturers specifications.”

http://www.mcc.org/clusterbomb/report/laos_appendix.html

This is what I managed to google up, but I'm sure Deminer can provide better information.

BLU-61/B Fragmentation and Incendiary Anti-Personnel and Anti-Material Bomb
The BLU-611B bomb is the shape and size of a large softball measuring 3 7/8 inches in diameter and weighing approximately 2 1/2 pounds. The bomb has four protruding wind vanes moulded into its steel body. When the bomb is released, the wind vanes impart spin to the bomb and arm the internal fuze. Upon impact, the bomb detonates, producing a large number of high velocity fragments, which may also produce an incendiary effect upon striking a material target. The bomb is normally painted olive drab with a 1/4 inch diameter yellow paint dot and a 1/4 inch red paint dot on each half of the bomb. The bomb identification markings are normally stencilled on the body in black paint. No practice bomb has been identified for this BLU. Figure 345 illustrates the BLU-61/B bomb.

EDO wins fast-track contract for Warlock jammers

By Patience Wait
Staff Writer

EDO Corp. has won a contract from the Army Communications-Electronics Command to provide electronic force-protection equipment. The contract is worth up to $35 million, with final details to be negotiated in early 2004.

Warlock devices, as EDO named them, are modified versions of the company’s Shortstop electronic protection system. Warlocks have been effective in countering the threat of improvised explosive devices, such as those being used by terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Funding for Warlock has been included in the supplemental budgets enacted by Congress to fund operations in Iraq. The Army and EDO have been working on the fast-track procurement since November to increase and accelerate production of Warlock units. Under the contract, EDO is to deliver more than 1,000 additional units in two versions – Warlock Red, a low-cost jammer to counter specific threat that have been emerging in increasing numbers, and Warlock Green, a more capable jammer used to address more sophisticated threat systems. The company expects to deliver most of the units in 2004.

“Our original work on this technology began in 1990 in response to anticipated threats to U.S. troops in Operation Desert Storm,” said James Smith, EDO’s chief executive officer. “We have been delivering Shortstop units since 1998 in various configurations and continue to receive funding for improvements to the technology. The recognized ability to save lives is driving the urgency to field our new Warlock configurations and to advance this technology even further.”

Based in New York City, EDO employs 2,800 people and had revenue in 2002 of $329 million. The company was No. 76 on the Washington Technology 2003 Top 100 federal prime contractors.

Great pics of some very nasty ordinance. Just one point of interest the Casspir is just one of many south african mine protected vehicles it is in no why a demining vehicle. It can be converted into one to lift anti personell mine fields by fitting it with steel wheels and simply driving through the field. Another intersting fact is that it can take the punch of 4 TM 55s and the crew will survive. Here are some pics of other mine protected vehicles produced over here.

The vehicle in front is known as the meerkat and the boggies behind as centipedes (duisendpoot). The whole system is known as the cubby. Of the lion well I am truely stumped.

Reumech was bought by Vicers OMC who in turn was bough by Alvis. On the Alvis OMC site I found no mention of the Lion and the same on the Denel site. The Cubby is manufatured by Alvis OMC as well but also no mention. Strange.

Wasn't there something in the top section about not posting details of damage to vehicles for fear of insurgents using them for info? I know it's not an armored hummer, but it's a very detailed series showing what damage can be done.

I have a question.
Here in Romania i often hear the term OFFENSIVE or DEFENSIVE hand grenade.
Is this a journalistic misconception ... because i never heard of the offenisve US grenades ...
And if this is correct what is the difference between offenisve and defensive grenades.
Thank you.

muede
09-11-2005, 09:15 PM
Yeah, well thats something still, there just really dont seem to be anything more / better about the weapon in online. :/ too bad.

Also difference between defensive and offensive grenades is the ammount of explosives those have and more importantly the number and lethal radius of the fragments, ie with defensive grenades having larger and offensive grenades smaller lethal radius. IIRC.
