PMD-1 APERS (Yugoslavia)

Country of Origin: Serbia


The PMD-1 was a copy of the Russian PMD-6M "Shu" antipersonnel mine (see "Variants," below). It was a manually laid mine with limited underwater use. When it was armed, the lid of the PMD-1 was raised. Downward pressure on the lid of the UPMD-1 pressure-initiated fuze detonated the PMD-6 mine.


As with the Bulgarian PMD-1, the Yugoslav version is also likely no longer in production or service. When used, it has been deployed throughout Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia.
