Abstract : In view of the wide use of mines and explosive obstacles by the forces of the NATO powers, Soviet troops are equipped with a wide range of devices for detecting, marking and eliminating antitank and antipersonel mines. These include roller and plow type mine sweepers mounted on tanks, the Road Induction Mine Detector (DIM) mounted in a GAZ-69 light truck, and a hand-operated mine detector and Mine Reconnaissance and Clearance Set (KR) for foot soldiers. Various types of engineer equipment are provided for locating hidden delayed-action mines and demolition charges, and a magnetometer bomb-detector has been developed.
