PMD-1 APERS (Bulgaria)

Country of Origin: Bulgaria


The Bulgarian PMD-1 weighed140 grams (4.9 ounces) and contained 25 grams of explosive filler. The fuze was electro-mechanical and reported to be a contact (pressure) fuze. It had a self-destruct time of two to 96 hours. The mine was green, with green raised markings, and made of plastic.

The PMD-1, now considered obsolete, was dispensed from a 122-mm KNURS-DM cargo rocket, which contained 16 PMD-1 mines as well as one POMD-1 AP scatterable mine and four TMD-1 anti-tank mines.


No longer in production or service with the Bulgarian army. All stockpiled PMD-1s have been reported destroyed.
