Security Poster: Terrorists Anti-Tank Mines


Terrorists and insurgent groups in many countries have obtained anti-tank mines for use against the legitimate government forces, or against invading forces. The examples in this poster are just a few of the more common types. These mines are frequently stolen from government arsenals, buried caches (as in Iraq) or have been supplied to the them by “terrorist rogue states”. Where these mines have been emplaced in large minefields, insurgents have dug them up and re-deployed them against trucks and armored vehicles.

The larger mines contain a substantial amount of high explosives. Housings are made of plastic, steel or wood. Many of these mines are boobytrapped, so they cannot be dug up without detonating. Often, they are daisy-chained, a series of them connected together, often along a roadside, with detonating cord. When one detonates beside a vehicle convoy, they all detonate simultaneously down the line. Mines are often coveted by insurgents for their easily accessible high explosive charge—usually cast TNT. This poster illustrates items that should be recognized for what they are, and it is an important training aid for that purpose.

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.
