Bulgarian TM-62M Training AT Mine W/Fuse Assembly (Used)

These full metal TM-62M training mines were domestically produced by Bulgaria with Soviet technical assistance. The inert mines are identical in shape, size, and weight to their live counterparts, and were used to train Bulgarian combat engineers in mine-laying, detection, and defusing operations.

Most of the mines in this lot have been run over by tracked vehicles. Our working hypothesis is that this was done in order to teach soldiers proper emplacement technique. Although proximity (magnetic) fuses did exist for the TM-62, the most common fuse type was a simple mechanical switch.

This meant that the mine had to be placed in both the right location, and the right depth in order to detonate. By burying, running over, and digging up the mine, instructors could inspect each student's fuse assembly, ensuring a live mine would have functioned as intended.

Each TM-62M measures approximately 12" x 12" x 4" and weighs in at a hefty 21 lbs. Each mine ships for free to CONUS addresses, thanks to the wonderfully exploitable USPS flat rate box system.

 

Hand Pick:

The mines come packed in crates of 4 each. If you select handpicking we will give you the best looking mine in the case. Since nearly all the mines have been run over, you should expect dents and scratches regardless. So it's really a matter of degree.

Won't you be mine?

What can I say? It's a mine. It's fine. Getting the hand picked option is not a waste of time. Otherwise it may be worse for wear and covered in grime. I really have the care of Ivan and the Bulgarians to thank, because it's pretty obvious it was run over by a tank.
