All devices that have featured in recorded HD accidents
 

 

AP blast mines
AP fragmentation mines
AT mines
Submunitions
Explosive (HE) in mines

The following list covers all definitely identified devices that have featured in recorded Humanitarian Demining incidents. After some accidents, it is not possible to identify the device with any confidence.

The list is rather shorter than you might expect. Other lists show all mines known to have been manufactured or offered for sale. This list gives a far more realistic picture of the predominant mine types in the ground and still active..... I have perhaps seen three times as many types on my travels. Some were atrophied and inert, others were just easy to find safely, and some were on display in offices but never found in the field.
