Special mining: features and related facts

How to make it difficult for the enemy to advance in a certain area or make such an advance completely impossible without the use of large personnel resources? There are options for this, among which mining continues to be one of the most effective.


When an enemy, even a highly mobile and organized enemy, falls into a minefield, then in this case the time of his advance towards the intended goal will increase significantly. Moreover, the increase in the time interval depends in this case on the nature of the mining of the area.

In 2017, a special type of special forces appeared in the Russian Armed Forces - special mining units. The servicemen of such units are engaged in focal or discrete use of mines and other explosive devices, in contrast to those who mine the terrain “in the carpet” version.

Special mine squads can install engineering ammunition in certain critical areas, including infrastructure facilities. For example, it can be a mountain road, a bridge, an entrance to an important object, etc.

The plot "Polygon" on the T24 channel tells about special mines, explains the importance of this work when performing certain tasks.

From an interview with a soldier:

We can destroy the command post, disrupting communication and interaction between troops.

    A strange statement, given the fact that special forces brigades have always had training in mine explosives, and it is precisely with regard to the point mining of certain objects with different explosives, and there was an engineering company, if my memory serves me right. Moreover, there was a special weapons unit that used portable nuclear warheads, so it is unlikely that America was discovered in the Russian army when they announced the creation of a special mining unit. This is just a badly forgotten old, or the spread of the Soviet experience under the guise of innovations.

      Strange statement ...

      I agree with you! I also agree that nowadays such “veschs” that existed, for a short time or for a long time, in the Soviet period are often given as “innovation”!

        often referred to as "innovation"

        Maybe I'm wrong, but it looks like these are organizational games for the purpose of drawing new posts. In the Special Forces with positions / titles, it has always been dietary, maybe even so - they will create a special ministry service with an appropriate vertical ...

    Strangely, special mines were previously considered to be the use of special ammunition ... Although "a new broom, sweeps in a new way ..."

      In-in, and I have the same reaction to the term "special-ammunition".

    It is a pity that this overgrown fool, "push button", bluntly interrupted and did not let the "Afghan" sapper tell about how he was masking the "MON" ki installed ... request

      It is a pity that this over-aged fool is a "knob-button"

      The whole impression is spoiled by this narrow-minded commentator, whose place is to be a DJ and not go where he is complete zero.

    Everything new is well forgotten old. The experience of "special mining" and engineering assault groups has been accumulated since the Second World War, hot spots, Afghanistan has been accumulated a lot.
    On "Zvezda" they constantly show the training of engineering and assault units, they say they were created in 2017 ...
    In the methods of conducting military reconnaissance: raiding, ambushing and mining when retreating or breaking away from pursuit, is the installation of a VU not special mining?
    I heard that in 1993-94, the so-called. "special mining" was carried out in the "difficult sections" of the Afghan-Tajik border by Russian military personnel.
