INFO ONLY. NOT FOR SALE P88-6

US M2 Anti- Personell Mine (Bounding), Inert with 60mm projectile and correct fuze.

This particular mine was rendered safe in 1993 at a place called Wilflicken, Germany (Wild Chicken) by personnel of the 21st E.O.D. Detachment. When the Berlin Wall came down, We were given the mission to begin destroying all of the prestocked anti-personnel and anti-tank mines that were prepositiond but not burried in Germany. This type of mine when functioned, would expell a 60mm mortar aproximately waist high and then it would detonate. The 60mm mortar did not have an fins or the M52 series fuze assembled to it it when it was inserted into the mine and capped off.

The M2 is a US bounding anti-personnel mine used during the Second World War. A number of variants of the mine were produced and although the mine is no longer in US service, it can be found in Cyprus, Iran, Iraq, Korea, Laos, Oman, Rwanda, Tunisia and the Western Sahara. Copies of the mine were produced by Belgium ( as the PRB M966), Pakistan (P7), Portugal (M/966) and Taiwan.

The mine consists of a cylindrical steel main body containing a 60 millimeter mortar shell body (originally the M49A2), linked to a tall thin fuze stand. The fuze stand held either a pin based tripwire fuze or a combination pressure tripwire fuze with a pronged pressure cap. Later fuzes were sensitive to pressure or pull and could be used with a tripwire. When the mine is triggered a black powder charge launches the mortar shell out of the main body of the mine and into the air. A pyrotechnic delay fuse triggers the mine when it has risen to between two and three meters in height. The lethal radius of the mine is reported to be approximately ten meters.
