Security Poster: Terrorists Anti-Personnel Mines


Anti-personnel mines are small, lightweight explosive charges in a wood, metal or plastic housing. They may be completely or partly buried, or may be hidden in tall grass. They are used equally by military armed forces and by terrorist, guerrilla and insurgent groups.

The aim of placing antipersonnel mines, is to wound and kill people. The charges can also impede a vehicle by damaging wheels or fuel tanks. The amount of explosive is generally too small to damage a heavy armored vehicle.

The initiating system is generally a pressure, tilt rod or pull-activated device with a detonator embedded in the high explosive charge. Some are further boobytrapped against lifting out of the ground.

There are an estimated 110 million anti-personnel mines buried in countries around the world and they kill and maim people every day.

These devices come in many shapes, sizes and colors. This poster is an essential reference training aid for police, military and security awareness training.

Note that all of the posters in this series of 18 are also available in a book of technical descriptions and explanations, written by Patrick Gericke, publisher of the posters. He is a de-mining expert, veteran of both the Rhodesian and South African armed forces and a security expert specializing in terrorist weapons and explosives.
