Anti-personnel fragmentation mine



The POMZ-2M is a stake-mounted anti-personnel fragmentation mine made in the former Soviet Union. The body of the mine is a cast-iron thick-walled tube with five rows of cast fragmentation "chunks". This is usually mounted on a short wooden stake. Because the mine is easy to copy, dimensions and colour may vary. The body of the mine is usually painted olive green. The wooden stakes may be green, brown or unpainted (as shown).
