Original Cold War Era Yugoslavian Inert Mina Usmerena Rasprskavajućeg Dejstva MRUD “Claymore” Anti-Personnel Mine - Complete

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. There is a famous quote that goes “What a good artist understands is that nothing comes from nowhere. All creative work builds on what came before. Nothing is completely original.” and this MRUD device is a prime example of that. This is the first Yugoslavian “claymore” we have ever had the pleasure of offering here at IMA. These are extremely rare and to find a complete set like this one is just unheard of anymore!

This mine set is completely inert and is unable to be rendered live again. The set is in total compliance per the current BATF standards governing inert ordnance and is not available for export.

The MRUD (Mina usmerena rasprskavajućeg dejstva - Directed fragmentation mine) is a Yugoslav design of plastic bodied, convex rectangular directional type anti-personnel mine designed to wound or kill by fragmentation. It is broadly similar to the M18A1 Claymore mine.

The casing is a light green color with two detonator wells and three crude sight lines on the top and an embossed grid pattern on the front of some early mines. Two detachable metal legs fit in slots on the bottom to secure the mine when it is ground mounted, both of which are still present in their respective sleeve.

The body of the MRUD is waterproof and the mine can be used in temperatures from −30˚ to +50˚ C. The mine body contains 900 grams of TNT-based explosive and 650 5.5-millimeter steel balls. When fired the fragmentation has a lethal arc of 60 degrees and a lethal range of 40–50 meters. The MRUD kit comes packed with a manual inductor, circuit test device and an EK-40-69 electric detonator all of which are present and “functional”.. The mine can be command detonated from up to 30 meters away using a manual inductor or another electrical power source. The fuse cavities also accept any Serbian booby trap fuse with an M10 × 1 mm including the UMP-1 and UMP-2 pull and the UMNOP-1 multi-function fuse.

The MRUD comes packed in a grey/green colored canvas shoulder bag which also contains the firing cable a circuit tester and a manual inductor which are present and in wonderful condition. Ten of these sets come packed in a natural wooden crate.

These mines have been encountered mounted high in trees as well as the more conventional ground mounting. The MRUD can be located visually as well as with metal detectors. Depending on the actuation method the MRUD will have a limited resistance to blast overpressure from explosive breaching methods like the Giant Viper and MICLIC.

A wonderful example of an extremely hard to find mine set. Comes more than ready for further research and display.
