Unknown underwater electrical potential mine

Country of Origin: Russia


This is a moored, medium underwater electrical potential (UEP) mine. There is very little unclassified information available about this weapon.

The mine is deployable by surface ships and submarines. It has a very short range and utilizes rotating machinery, such as propellers, making it difficult to silence.


Its reported status of being in use by Russia is presumed, with no confirmed information to the contrary in at least two decades as of this update.
