Original Polish INERT MN-121/0 Scatterable Anti-Tank Mine

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a lovely example of the ingenious Polish MN-121 Anti-Tank Mine. This example came over from Europe amongst a crate of other mines which were designed to be used as training examples with extra weight added to give it a more realistic feel. This mine is complete and totally inert and is in compliance with the current BATF guidelines on inert ordnance. Not Available For Export.

The MN-121 is a Polish scatterable anti-tank mine, externally similar to the German AT-2 mine. The mine is cylindrical with ten wire legs which fold outward to keep the mine upright. The mine uses a magnetic influence fuze, which triggers the mine when a vehicle passes over it. The mine also has an anti-handling device which triggers the mine if it is moved. The mine's warhead is a shaped charge design containing approximately 700 grams of RDX. The manufacturer claims that it is capable of penetrating 60 millimeters of armor at an offset of half a meter.

The mine can be deployed either from aircraft, a specialized mine laying system or 122 mm artillery rockets. When required the mine is ejected from a storage canister, and shortly afterwards a small parachute is opened, which both retards the descent and keeps the mine correctly oriented as it descends. Once the mine lands on the ground the top of the mine is ejected, along with the parachute and the spring-loaded legs bring the mine upright.

The mine can be manually programmed to self-destruct after a period of 3, 6, 12, 24 or 96 hours.

This training example is complete and retains all original markings on the outside of the canister as well as the orange parachute on the inside. There is no extensive damage but the top cone is dented in.

This is a lovely example that comes more than ready to display.
