Mine, Anti-Tank, Heavy, High Explosive, M6A1
« on: April 16, 2016, 11:08:06 AM »
M6A1 Heavy Anti Tank Mine. February 1945 production,  It has been demilled, the TNT has been taken out and it has a blue training fuze. My best guess would be that, after it was made inert, it was used for training purposes by a NATO army.

Even replica WW2 M1 A/T mines are now available here in the UK!

Re-enactment is getting very popular and has turned out to be a growing industry!

A very interesting artifact.

I have a German teller mine that was brought home by a GI, minus explosives but a very intimidating mine when you sit and look at it..
