AP blast mines
AP fragmentation mines
Explosive (HE) in mines
following list covers all definitely identified devices that have
featured in recorded Humanitarian Demining incidents up to 2008. After some accidents, it is not possible
to identify the device with any confidence.
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.
