Russians Scatter AP Mines With Launcher

Interesting video shows Russian troops using a PKM-1 remote mining system to launch POM-2 scatterable anti personnel mines. The tube is poorly emplaced and dislodges from its firing position.


There is no way for the exact location of these mines to be logged by the Russian troops. The mines are being used as a terrain denial asset for an area the Russians do not plan on operating in. However, given the poor communication and basic soldiering techniques demonstrated by Russian forces throughout this conflict, it is likely that only this small band of soldiers know this area is now mined, and the devices are no just as much a threat to sister elements as they are a threat to enemy Ukrainian forces.
