Bullet mine is essentially a single-shot pistol dug into the ground muzzle up
Everyone knows that an anti-personnel mine explodes if you step on it or hit it on a thin wire that gets in the way (the famous “stretch marks”). As a result, either an explosion force (high-explosive mines) or shrapnel (fragmentation mines) occurs.


However, the little-known mine PMP, which will be discussed, stands alone. It does not explode, but shoots. And at the same time never misses - a kind of "underground sniper". Mines, by the way, do not know any blunders at all.

Mina in law

The authors of the Ottawa Convention on the prohibition of anti-personnel mines left many loopholes for their use. The convention reads: “An anti-personnel mine” means a mine that is intended to explode from the presence, proximity or direct impact of a person and at the same time incapacitates, cripples or kills one or several people. ”

But, first of all, no mine can work at all from the “presence or proximity of a person”, because it does not have the mind and cannot determine this presence or proximity. In all cases, the victim, albeit unintentionally, itself activates the mine, affecting its sensitive elements - the sensors of the target. And secondly, the PMP mine, according to the Convention, is not at all, because it does not explode, but it shoots.

Crossbow

The family tree of the PMP dates back to ancient times, when hunters and warriors used various types of “crossbow”. Originally, they were bows or crossbows aimed at the path and triggered when the victim touched the cord or string. Later for this purpose they began to use firearms. weapon.

The reliability of such self-shooters was small, and their use was one-time. It was long and difficult to install a pistol or a gun, to aim it, to stretch the twine and especially to mask it. In addition, there was no guarantee that the bullet would hit the target and not fly past, which most often happened.

In the process of solving this problem, so-called bullet mines were born. In its most general form, a bullet anti-personnel mine is the simplest single-shot pistol dug into the ground with the barrel up. No aiming devices are required. The victim herself will force the mine to shoot, stepping on the trunk, the tip of which slightly sticks out of the ground and is almost invisible. Do not need this gun and complex shutter. He is not in a bullet mine at all.

How does mine work? I. Mina in combat position. Ii. The victim stepped on a mine. Under pressure from the legs, the sleeve begins to descend, compressing the mainspring. Iii. The sleeve has dropped to the moment when the annular groove on it has reached the level of balls. Balls, which all the time pressed the spring-loaded barrel, roll out into the groove. Coupling coupling and trunk broken. The barrel is free. Iv. The barrel together with the chuck under the action of the spring quickly went down and hit the cap on the drummer. Shot! V. The bullet, passing the trunk and breaking through the rubber, falls into the victim's leg

Not a fighter

Consider, as an example, a Soviet anti-personnel mine anti-personnel mine, which was adopted by the Soviet army at the beginning of the 1960s. The largest diameter of this mine is 3,6 cm, height - 12 cm, weight - just 145 grams. Mine is equipped with an 7,62 mm round cartridge for TT pistol. For a shot, you must press on its cap with a force from 7 to 30 kg.

When fired, a bullet pierces the foot or heel of a person stepping on it. This part of the human body is saturated with small, multiple bones, a large number of vessels, tendons and muscles. Along with a bullet, fragments of the sole of the shoe, as well as incandescent powder gases and powder particles, get into the wound. Foot injuries are always considered severe and require long-term treatment. Often after such injuries a person remains disabled, but under any conditions in the next two to three months, this soldier is no longer a fighter.

Mining economics

Although the engineers who developed the PMP proceeded from the task of creating a cheap, easy-to-use and installation mine intended for mass mining of approaches to their positions by low-skilled soldiers, it nevertheless fully fit into the American concept of “mine-minded weapons”.

This concept, which was presented in those years as a way to reduce soldiers' deaths during the war, actually pursued completely different goals. First of all, a sharp decrease in the cost of mines by reducing their size and the number of explosives, which made it possible to supply troops for the same money with a much larger number of mines. But most importantly, according to American economists, it is much more beneficial not to kill the enemy soldier, but to cripple him. This achieved several goals at once. Firstly, a crippled or killed soldier is equally unfit for war. Secondly, in contrast to the killed, the wounded is required to be taken out of the battlefield and delivered to the hospital, which consumes fuel, vehicles and distracts from the battlefield at least two soldiers. Thirdly, the state bears large expenses for the treatment, food and maintenance of the wounded. Fourth, the cripple in the future becomes a burden for the country, as it can not fully work. And most importantly, fifthly, the appearance of a large number of cripples inevitably undermines the morale of the population.

Handling a mine is extremely simple - you just need to fold the wire ring on the safety bracket and, pulling it, remove this bracket from the mine

Only in the cinema

Is it possible to have time to remove the leg from the mine at the moment of the shot? Artists in action movies can do this without much difficulty, even with ordinary, non-bullet mines. The reaction of the cine superman far exceeds the detonation rate of TNT (6000 meters per second). In life, everything is different. The mine triggering process lasts 0,2 – 0,4 seconds. The reaction of a person to an external stimulus (that is, the time from the moment of realization to the moment of giving the order to the muscles by the brain) - 0,2 – 0,7 seconds. It takes at least 0,4 – 0,8 seconds to contract the muscles and stop the foot from the mine. Total - 0,6 – 1,5 seconds. That is, even theoretically, there is no possibility of salvation.



Puncture in the ground

Installing mines is very simple. It is enough to pierce a hole in the ground, which is equal to the diameter of the mine body and depth to the body length, and lower the mine there so that only a rubber cap rises above the surface. For this purpose, the mines have a special metal piercer - a pin. If the ground is too soft or swampy, then a plywood circle (support washer) with a diameter of 10 cm, which is also included in the mine package, can be placed under the cap cap.



Bad mine

It seems that a mine is good for everyone - both simple and easy to use, reliable and effective and promising for mechanization of mining - it is very simple to develop a device that can install such mines by the thousands in a matter of hours. At least on the model of machines for planting forests. However, despite all this, bullet mines have not been widely used.

There is one reason. PMP does not possess the main damaging factor inherent in all other types of mines: it does not lead to the development of mine fear in the enemy. The fact is that on the battlefield a shot and a defeat of a soldier by a bullet are usually not perceived as the work of a mine. From the side it seems as if a fallen soldier is simply overwhelmed by an enemy shot. But just mine fear is a powerful psychological weapon that can stop the advancing infantry, deprive the soldiers of the determination to go forward, to paralyze their will.

      And if you make it without metals? forge when you find it, and if you still have a large caliber ... finally, the bomb will be !!! Consider one-legged the enemy will have a lot, and this no matter how crippled the content of which the state will spend resources (as it sounds inhuman)

          Здесь разговор идет о минах "не взрывающихся", а "стреляющих" типа нашей ПМП. Вот Скажите каков должен быть каток, что бы его оторвало - ну только если на игрушечной машинке...
          "Мина противопехотная пулевая нажимного действия. Предназначена для выведения из строя личного состава противника. Поражение человеку наносится за счет ранения стопы при выстреле патрона типа ТТ в момент наступания ногой на нажимную крышку мины. Из-за особенностей строения стопы ноги человека (большое количество мелких и тонких костей) любое ее ранение является тяжелым. Вылетающая из ствола мины пуля в момент проникновения в стопу увлекает за собой в раневой канал загрязненные фрагменты подошвы обуви. Кроме того, в раневой канал проникают пороховые газы патрона, усиливая поражающее действие мины. Раненный этой миной самостоятельно передвигаться не может и нуждается в срочной госпитализации. От 35 до 45% пораженных впоследствии остаются инвалидами."
          So titanium plates may well PISTOL BULLET, if not restrained, then take aside ...

                A fighter will not be combat ready for 3-4 weeks, and at best, 6-8 if a tendon breakage or calcaneus breaks off.

    Проблема "минного страха", то есть его отсутствия, не в мине. Мина гениальная. Проблема в специфических особенностях "военного мышления" laughing brilliantly described by E.F. Russell. I’m going to develop (in fact, a day’s affairs for two) the simplest device, which, with the drive to two soldiers' forces, will be able to install these mines by the thousands. You can not develop at all, it's just a planter for seedlings yes Можно будет так прикрыть позиции, что подход к ним станет на время обезвреживания мин вообще невозможным. Расход боеприпасов (патронов к легкому стрелковому, которыми собственно и является такая мина) на 15 минут обычного боя позволит набить рядов 50 таких мин перед всей позицией. Причем за копейки... Видимо поэтому эта мина "малоизвестная". Приносит слишком маленькую прибыль производителям...

    Any mine is more of a psychological weapon, stumbled upon a mine, maybe even one single one, the first thing the enemy does is stop, rush to and fro, generally get nervous. But he will not go further in the same direction soon. In general, maneuver is difficult, it makes it possible to destroy the enemy.
    In this mine I can say - it’s just cheaply effective and for the most part not fatal, unlike the sample in the picture (PMD-6). And if a warrior is wounded and not killed on the spot, then he creates much more problems for the enemy. from evacuation to disability pension.

                      There, this militarized know-how of manufacturers of work shoes will be tested - the so-called trial toe. The soldiers of the special forces of the North Caucasus Military District, armed with mine detectors and wearing these anti-mine boots, will clean the area of ​​weapons of great destructive power.
                      As a rule, when they talk about protective clothing for soldiers, most often they mean body armor, jackets, overalls. Meanwhile, when clearing territories, first of all, legs need protection. It turns out that to create such protection is quite capable of domestic shoe manufacturers. Currently, special composite materials have appeared that have new protective properties. Their inclusion in the existing development of work shoes made it possible to make products that protect the foot from damage by explosives.
                      In appearance, these boots are not too different from ordinary work shoes: high, made of soft leather, not very heavy.

                      Во всяком случае, никак не напоминают неудобоваримые колодки. Зато внутри они - многослойные. Но из каких слоев сделан этот "пирог", создатели ботинок не говорят - коммерческая тайна. Зато с удовольствием рассказывают, что, когда впервые их разработка была продемонстрирована на одной из выставок вооружений, представители зарубежных стран были весьма удивлены. Говорят, не ожидали, что в России могут сделать подобное.
                      Now the military has set a new task for shoe developers - the creation of high-explosive boots.

                        Well, from Petal (PFM 1), such people can protect. There are only 40 grams of explosives.
                        In general, this is the usual struggle of a shell and a shield, which in this case will not be long.
                        The boots will be widespread in equipment, will double the explosive charge in the mine or form it in the shape of a cumulative one. It will end up with the weight of the boot exceeding reasonable, the soldier will not be able to drag a weight on his leg ...

                        Such pistons can and will save from an ordinary mine, more precisely from the expansion of medium-sized fragments. But from the cartridge ... Let the bullet not even penetrate the armor caps, the kinetic energy of the bullet, plus its weight, the direction is strictly up ... The rupture of the Achilles tendon, this is mostly an invalid for life. In a time of peace, they’ll make a joke, of course ... A concussion of the joints, if they have clearly hit the axis and survived the Achilles. You won’t be able to run too, and most likely never.

              By the way, what prevents this mine from being made from 14,5x114mm?

              114mm is just a cartridge. Add a drummer, the barrel, at least with part of the rifling turnover, will be half a meter, the barrel thickness, so as not to tear, like the breech of the KPVT. A kind of crap will already weigh decently and it is as much as the PMP you can’t drag. But most importantly, instead of a punch, the kit should include scrap to punch a hole in the ground that is sufficient in length for such a mine.

    svp67 Вы конструкцию данного "девайса" посмотрите, там обычный патрон. Это типа стреляющей "авторучки"...И в основном применяется пистолетный патрон, с "мягкой" пулей. так что "титановые" пластина сгодятся...

    You can use a cartridge with buckshot (for example, 12 caliber with a dispersant) and initiate a mine with a stretch or push mechanism of a larger size than the mine itself, the lesion area will increase, then titanium plates will have to be put into panties. Yes, even if he shoots a foot, 1200J will not seem a little, moreover, he can catch several close-by fighters with one shot. Such a mine can be fixed on the wall, etc.

    Thank you very much for the article to Yuri Veremeev!

        A 12-gauge rifle cartridge and a half-inch piece of water pipe with a striker and a spring are in every way cheaper than any MONK. It is easily made in the field from improvised materials. It is installed no more difficult than conventional MRP. I think this is a very dangerous thing. Fortunately, it was not used in large quantities (except for Vietnam).

          But also not more effective. so very quickly they can become worthless - get damp ... Reliability is very low.

    How widespread is this cartridge in the army?
    Or will they be delivered to order, like pizza?

    Apparently the idea was this:
    7,62 caliber cartridges in stockpiles,
    they have nowhere to go, cost a penny.
    Take it - I do not want.

    But I am impressed by your military savvy.
    Not for mass use, but for solving specific tasks:
    in addition to the crossbow, kite or balloon.

    Все же есть лазейка и против Оттавской конвенции. Так по определению: "Порох — многокомпонентная твёрдая взрывчатая смесь, способная к закономерному горению параллельными слоями без доступа кислорода извне с выделением большого количества тепловой энергии и газообразных продуктов, используемых для метания снарядов, движения ракет и в других целях. Порох относят к классу метательных взрывчатых веществ." Соответственно при контакте с миной ПМП происходит взрыв пороха и пуля играет роль готового поражающего элемента, так же как и в минах МОН, ОЗМ-72. Все отличие в типе применяемого взрывчатого вещества. Кроме того в этой мине отсутствует механизм самоликвидации что делает её попадающей под ограничение по этой же конвенции.

    no mine can work at all from the "presence or proximity of a person"

    What is the reason for such a conclusion? The sensors of modern mines are triggered, not only from the presence of a person, but also are able to distinguish an armed person from an unarmed one. For example, a series of combined infrared and seismic sensor systems allows you to determine with a high degree that it is an armed person or just a sheep or other large animal at distances up to 50 meters. Or determine the passage of technology and not work under it .... so a bit outdated data. In addition, there are mine systems with a variable lesion area. There were developments on creeping mines changing the pattern of the mining field according to a certain algorithm and working on the principle of the interaction of simple links. In general, there would be an order, but with the modern development of electronics, everything can be done.

    When using mines equipped with explosives, yes. But there’s a BIG chance from such a bullet chance that the skating rink and the leg will be in place ... fellow

    In the cartridge 7.62x25 intended for installation in this mine, there is a steel armor-piercing bullet, which is precisely designed to break through titanium layers in the soles of saboteur boots.

    Mines of this type are more exotic than real weapons. The main disadvantage of this mine is the impossibility of a group defeat of the enemy.
