The US military has reported buying more than a thousand hand-held mine detectors. The US military has announced the purchase of over a thousand Minehound VMR2 handheld mine detectors for the Afghan security forces. These four kilogram (8,8 pounds) devices include a metal detector and a georadar. The latter is used to detect non-metallic mines. VMR2 is already in use by US forces, and some of the Afghan demining forces are already familiar with this equipment.

Afghan troops will use VMR2 to search for mines, which the Taliban are using more and more often, as well as roadside bombs and anti-vehicle mines on dirt roads. Many of these bombs and mines do not contain metal.

    I tried to find a Russian metal detector in the arsenal of the Russian Army ..... so there are only Soviet samples 30 years ago (maybe I'm wrong) ... and we don’t seem to be buying ... but you have to
    and it turns out that the Afghan army is cooler in this matter
