Original Soviet WWII TM-35 Anti-Tank Mine (Inert) - Dated 1940
Original Item: Only One Available. Extremely rare and nearly impossible to find on today's market! Totally inert and demilitarized according to BATF guidelines with hollow body and deactivated fuse. Not available for Export.
The TM-35 was a rectangular, metal-cased Soviet anti-tank mine used during the Second World War. The mine has a metal case, which is rectangular with a carrying handle on one side and a large raised pressure plate in the center. Sufficient pressure on the central pressure plate presses down on one end of an internal see-saw like lever, which removes the retaining pin from an MUV fuse, releasing the striker, triggering the mine.
The mine's main charge consisted of 200 gram blocks of TNT packed into the metal case. The mine could be fitted with a number of improvised anti-handling devices utilizing the MUV pull fuse.
This example is dated 1940 and is in very good condition with some exterior original paint remaining. There is a bit of corrosion on the exterior and the inside, but it is solid overall, except that the hinge pin was removed as part of the deactivation process. It still retains components of the original fuze trigger housing, which are often removed. It measures 8.75" x 8.75" x 3.5", and would be a welcome addition to any WWII ordnance collection!
