POMZ-2 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 six 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.
130mm (mine body only)
Main charge: 75g TNT
Fuze: The fuze is usually an MUV with a tripwire attached.
POMZ-2 has no thread in the hole where the fuze attaches, so
the fuze is pushed in (the detonator extends inside the TNT
roll inside). When the wooden stake decays or falls over, it
is fairly common for the fuze and detonator to become separated
from the mine. The mine has been extensively copied.
